Love it, but not working due to update
By , for WP 3.9.2


I love your plugin - it does everything perfectly - which is why when I updated it to the new version today I was upset that it made my blog sidebar my default sidebar on all of my pages. I brought my website back to yesterday's backup, and I am not able to update your plugin until this is fixed. I noticed that you mentioned that this was a fix for the last update, yet the other update worked perfectly for me.

So I just wanted to say Thank you for the great Plugin - and I hope you are able to fix it for me so I can update it again.

Judie :)

Custom Sidebars is one of the first essential plugins I install on every WordPress site I work on. No other sidebar plugin is as well designed as this; the new interface is really sleek and smooth and looks like it's built right in to the core. The WPMU team provides great support too.

Glad to found this plugin

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.

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.
