Very useful plugin
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've been using this plugin on many of my sites and it does a great job so far in displaying specific sidebars dependent on the main content

It is one of the most useful plugins I've needed so far.

Keep the good work.

Updating Dynamic Widget to 1.5.11
By , for WP 4.3.1

We are trying to upgrade DW o 1.5.11 but keep getting an error message:

Update Failed: The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.

Have tried deactivating and re-activating etc. but no luck.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Works great for the most part!

I have a heavily dependent widget menu sidebar on my site (http://www.pcatww.com/training) and this plug was a savior in getting that done. But I do see problems when trying to just show posts based on category or tag (and specific to a role), and it's not clear if the normal widget Visibility settings take precedence or not. I suppose that should be made clear in the documentation. Thx!

works very well

Great tool to control widgets.

Some options do not work well. I will report them in forum.

Getting full control on which pages a widget will display makes providing a quality website possible. This is an essential plugin for any developer.

Excellent ! Just a creating sidebar function is missing... It would be marvelous !

I like the facr that it's not in "implemented into the native widget-editor". It keeps it simple.

The BEST Plugin for Widget!

I just install this Plugin on my site! This is the Best Plugin for Widget Control. In my case, I use this plugin to show selected Adsense for Desktop and selected Ads for Mobile users only. LOVE IT!

Works well as advertised, easy to set up. Could us this to make as many custom sidebar combinations as you could come up with.

A Cut Above the Rest
By , for WP 4.2.1

I tried several other widget plugins for controlling widgets based on page category. I also tried several different plugins for adding categories to pages. The only combination that worked for me was using Dynamic Widgets with the Category Tag Pages plugin.

Other category plugins may work as well, but I have a working solution that I am keeping.

The Dynamic Widgets setting is under Pages, then select the categories you want the widget to show or hide on. You need a compatible category plugin as I mentioned above. This earns my donation - thank you!
