Support » Plugins » widget-logic just not working

  • I’ve got widget-logic installed and I’ve tried using it but it’s just not working. I started with the “recent posts” widget, using the conditional tag “is_front_page()”. Yes, I saved changes- but the widget still displays on every page of the site. Am I doing something wrong?

  • it does look like it yes. is_front_page() is perfectly good – and works ok on my sample 2.6 install.

    can you make the widget vanish from all pages by putting in just ‘false’?

    Nope, it doesn’t vanish. Could it be an issue with my theme? it is widgetized, but the author added widgets some time after the theme was created and really didn’t make any provision for them.

    it could be – what happens if you switch to another theme? – say the ‘WP default’ theme eg?

    if it turns out to be that, is it a public theme that i can look at the code?




    This is a great plugin.

    It works on my pages but I can’t get it working on my BLOG page.

    Maybe I just missed something,


    I just want all my widgets except ‘pages’ to appear on the ‘blog’ page,

    Any help is very much appreciated.



    if you have a page called blog (or with the URL/slug ‘blog’) in the list of pages under Manage > Pages, then this should work.

    it could be that the page is based on a template – what is the code in the template? it could be manipulating WP information so that is_page fails.

    it helps when troubleshooting to try switching to the WP default theme and see if the problem persists.

    thornbyte, I had the same problem you did. Here’s what I did; I went to “manage pages” and put my mouse over the “published” link on the page I wanted my widget on. On the bottom of the screen, I looked at the address of my page. There I found my page ID. It said “page_id=8” at the end of the address. So, instead of using the tag “is_page(‘Children’s Page’)”, I used “is_page(‘8’)”. Voila! It worked.

    Hope this helps!
