WP Widget Toggle


Hides widget content on page load then allows the user to toggle widgets open and closed by clicking the widget title. Requires all widgets you want to toggle to have a title (clicking the title toggles the widget open and closed).


  1. Install via Plugins: Add New or FTP
  2. Activate


It collapses all widgets everywhere?

Yes. Adding a jQuery selector to limit which widgets are affected is planned for a future release.

It doesn’t work with my theme!

Open a support thread and I’ll see if we can make it compatible with your theme’s custom markup.


Simple and efficient

Works as it should.
4 stars cause some css is needed in order to display the hide/unhide functionality to the user
