Widget Control


Widget Control is a plugin which aims to add more advanced control over your Widgets. At the moment the only feature
it has is the ability to disable all Widgets at the same time. I hope to get some time and ideas to add more features
in the future.

I’ve only tested the plugin with WP 2.7.0 and 2.7.1, but it will probobly work in older version as well. Let me know!

Contact me for requests or bug reports! 🙂


  • Deactivate all widgets with one button click (useful when upgrading WP)


  1. Download the plugin archive and expand it (you’ve likely already done this).
  2. Put the ‘widget-control.php’ file into it’s own ‘widget-control’ folder and put it into your wp-content/plugins/ directory (wp-content/plugins/widget-control/widget-control.php).
