    Cloning a widget works fine but when every time I make a change in one of the cloned widgets ALL of the information gets copied over to the other cloned widget and I lose my information! I need to clone a widget but then I DO NOT WANT TO SYNC IT.

    How do I solve this issue? I love using the sidebar but I need to be able to DUPLICATE and NOT SYNC the widgets.

    Thank you,
    Brent

    Hello @colourstone,

    This is not a bug, this is how this feature was designed (so there is no need to update the same widget across different sidebars – that is useful when you need to update for example contact information).

    Let me check with developer if there is something that can be done to detach cloned widgets from its orinal one. I will get back to you with feedback from dev.

    kind regards,
    Kasia

    Thank you!
    I need to duplicate and then just edit one or two small lines.
    Greatly appreciated!

    Glad you were able to figure out how clone, copy and sync work. Let us know if you have any other issues.

    This doesn’t resolve the issue. I’m waiting for a reply from the developer. Please don’t close the thread.
    Thank You,

    jdailey I see you’re the author. Can I add to my functions file to keep the cloned widgets from syncing? I just need to duplicate and then change a URL .

    Hello @colourstone,

    I’m sorry, but there is no way to implement this change in plugin with quick code snippet in functions.php or small change in plugin code.

    kind regards,
