Just what I need :)

It allows you to set different sidebars per post types, per individual pages/posts, etc. Love it!

Flawless Plugin & Support
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin works great for me running WP 3.9.1 and the Avada theme 3.5.1. After the timely fix, I really like the fact that everything is on one page in the dashboard now.
Aside from having to use the plugin to create the alternate sidebars instead of the standard Appearances->Sidebars, this plugin is flawless. Great job, WPMU devs!

p.s. Dev support really came through fixing the latest error in 2.0 in short order and thank you James for the premium membership!

Leider kann man dei Sidebar nicht komplett entfernen. Schade, so ist es für mich unbrauchbar.

Does what it seas

This plugin does exactly what it seas. Itßs light, integrates well in to WordPress and gives you tons of possibilities if you have ideas...

Works great but sidebars are randomly disappearing
By , for WP 3.9.1

We're using this on the Anchor theme from ThemeForest. There's a handy side panel that allows widgets to be displayed on a per page/post basis. We've used Display Widgets in the past but this plugin is much more user-friendly.

However, like journalt's issue, the sidebars are randomly disappearing on the front-end and only seem to appear when hard refreshing the browser.

This plugin does not work.
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin does not work. It looks nice.
But does not work.
Did everything as told in the instruction video.
Did more to try to get it to work.

Tested it with different themes.
Even the themes :
Twenty Twelve
Twenty Thirteen
Twenty Twelve

All themes I run were the latest versions.
Nop, nothing.

Works very well and has a lot of options

This plugin works perfectly well and is really flexible with all the options you can use to overwrite the sidebars!

Amazing! Thank you for the plugin!

WAS Great but no more
By , for WP 3.9

This was a wonderful plugin until about two months ago, when it began breaking for no reason. I used it to create custom sidebars for a dozen pages , and they consistently worked across multiple upgrades of both WP and the plugin itself. Then, about 2 months ago the sidebars started to disappear for no reason at all. I would rebuild them, and then a different one would suddenly disappear. Today my primary sidebar is gone--not just on the front end, but on the back end, as well. I thought it was a fluke, but checking the forum it appears it is happening a lot and the developers have not given any suggestions for a fix. My advice -- check daily to make sure your sidebars are in place. Or better yet, switch to something that is more stable and/or has developer support.
