Resource hog - will slow your website down
By , for WP 4.4.1

We have had this on a clients site, the site was suffering with slow load times and timing out, both front and back end.

Using the plugin, P3 - Plugin performance profiler we were able to identify that it was this plugin causing the issue. Our plugin loading time was averaging 5.800 seconds!

We only had 2 custom widget areas setup both containing a search widget and custom menu widget.

Upon removing the plugin our plugin load time is now 3.200 second and we are no longer having issues with site timeouts.

We would strongly recommend against anyone using this plugin.

Instead you could use Jetpack's visibility option to control what pages/posts you display your widgets on.

Great plugin, one question though
By , for WP 4.0.8

Hello! Really great plugin here, but I have one issue with it. I can't make it to work with the top category! For example, I have a category called "News", and then the subcategories "Domestic News", "World News", and it works with those subcategories and the posts in it, but not on the main "News" category.

Could it be theme related? I've checked all the settings in the theme, and I couldn't find anything that could cause a problem...

Best wishes, and thanks in advance.

Great plugin for customizing your site
By , for WP 4.2.4

We use this plugin on many client sites and it's a great one for quickly spinning up custom sidebars instead of modifying three different files to get a new one in. There's some strange decisions in here (front page is apparently an archive?), but it's a solid, useful plugin?

Thank you!
