Get the pro version directly via your WordPress dashboard UWL Panel > Upgrade for $9.99.

Widgets have long been a feature of WordPress with a number of default widgets being bundled, they are a great way to give the user control over placing additional elements on the page in the areas provided by the theme author. A lot of themes will include some custom widgets for different things bundled in the code which is great until you come to change themes, if you change themes you will lose the widgets provided by your old theme and any content you placed in them. One way around this is to use a plugin to handle your custom widgets so you can keep them with any theme.

Reviews

Beware! This may be a scam Plugin

I purchased this plugin specifically for the Ad plugin shown in the screenshots but it is not included in the premium download.

BEWARE, they BRAG about not offering refunds on their website. I purchased the lifetime membership since I build several sites for customer and I need a good ad widget on several.

They do not have a system of Customer Support where you can put a ticket in for resolution.

So, to sum up, they don’t offer refunds, they don’t offer the widgets promised and they don’t support their product.

Great plugin and great support

I was not able to find a proper widget plugin which would help create visually-pleasing menus on the sidebar. However, Ultimate Widgets Light was exactly what I was looking for. Plus, the support is quick and responsive, which is key to any plugin.
