[Resolved] Great potential

  • I look forward to future versions of this as I get the feeling it’s relatively new and still has kinks to be worked out. My first test only works when using the “hide” method, but not if I want to use “show” (which I would prefer). Also, would be interested in better explanations for the admin and user role options. Some of the descriptions are kind of vague (well, maybe it’s just me ;)).

    cheers!

    Thanks for the feedback and reporting the issue. We’re checking that.

    When it comes to descriptions, well, they are short 🙂 But these features will be useful if you use WordPress as a CMS. If you’re running a multi-user website there is no option in WP to allow certain users to manage widgets, without giving them access to all theme options. Restrict Widgets creates additional “restrict_widgets” capability that in combination with some other fixes allows you (as administrator) to give access to widgets page to non-admins. Furthermore it allows you to restrict access to certain sidebars, widgets and widget options (generally everything a user can manipulate in widgets page).

    Agree with dFactory – only seems to work using the “hide” feature – which suits my purposes for the one widget I have to hide until users are logged in. But it won’t show the widget I want to show instead for those not logged in.

    Thanks for the reply. The admin features surely will be useful – not needed for my current project, though, but those explanations help.

    Would definitely like to be able to use the “show” feature – hiding options can be very tedious! 🙂

    cheers!

    It will be fixed in the upcoming release (next week).

    Cheers for the plugin, hanging out for the fix to the “show” mode. Any progress?

    Sorry, we had a delay due to new plugin releases, but the bugfix for RW will also be available shortly.

    Please update to just released 1.1.0 – it should fix those issues.

    Great plugin dFactory!

    I have one quick question…

    I see that you can display the widget to categories. But is it possible to display the widget in posts filed under those categories?

    For example.

    A post created under a category called Inspiration.

    The widget could show the latest 3 posts with the title “Recent Inspiration”

    Thats what im trying to do…

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Yes, thats possible (to be true, any combination is possible) – just take a look at that topic http://www.dfactory.eu/support/topic/restrict-widget-to-post/, use rw_display_widget filter and in_category() template tag http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/in_category.
