Widget Logic
Is is_page_template() tag supported? (3 posts)

    I've got lots of custom rewrite rules and template redirects in the code, which makes most standard WP is_*** conditional tags a bit useless.

    I'm heavily reling on is_page_template() tag. I was wondering if it's supported with widget logic? It doesn't seem to be working at the moment..

    If not, could you give any tips on how to extend it?

    Many thanks,

    As I had problems with get_post_ancestors() I tested is_page_template() and is_page() from within a custom function used with plugin 'Widget Logic', too.
    In the debugging output I could not see any misbehaviour. If it is the standard template is_page_template() fails, otherwise it is true. On the other side is_page() resulted also as true if it was the standard template.

    is_page_template() should only be used outside the loop and may be after calling wp_reset_query().

    Hope this helps.

    I concur with what JochenT says. is_page and is_page_template work as well as they do in general - i.e. take note of the issue mentioned on


    re 'Cannot Be Used Inside The Loop'. so if your sidebar is called AFTER the loop, you might find the 'wp_reset_query' fix helps you out
