I’ve been using Dynamic Widgets and it worlks like a dream and is really useful.
But a couple a days ago I found one problem. I started using another very useful plugin for building affiliate links to Amazon products. It is called Amazon Link and it’s the best and most versatile Amazon widget around, full of options and possibilities.
When I put some link code from this Amazon plugin in a text widget and try to change its Dynamic properties, it just gets blocked. Then it prompts a message saying it doesn’t work with Dynamic Widgets. But this does not always happen.
Most of the time the text widget gets dynamic with some properties set to “No”. These properties (Single post, pages, frontpage, etc.) are the same I usually set to “No”, so it seems that Dynamic Widgets plugin somehow “copies” the properties of other text widgets that were already set before.
Up to now it has not really been a problem for me, but I just wanted to let you know the issue, as there’s a lot of people using these kind of plugins that throw some code to be copied to text widgets. It seems to be a compatibility problem on the Dynamic Widget’s side.
Maybe you may want to keep an eye on other “selective” plugins like Custom Code by Country as well, as there are some people who use them to build affialiate links for users that live in Europe, America or Asia, for example. One of the most useful features of Dynamic Widgets is its full compatibility with WPML, so why not make it compatible as well with some other plugin that allows to get pages not just by language, but for country?
Just one more thing: these two plugins use Ip2Nation to choose the country.
Thanks very much,
