Dynamic Widgets gives you full control on which pages a widget will display. It lets you dynamicly show or hide widgets on WordPress pages.
The plugin does it's job fine. The reason I decided not to use it is the user experience. It's not implemented into the native widget-editor but rather adds yet another submenu. And it costs me to much time to actually make changes. "Every" step needs to be saved and the page is reloaded. The plugin is really powerful but the workflow eats up my time. PS: it wouldn't work when activated network wide. Had to activate it on every site individually.
In my case it did exactly what I wanted!
This is about the 5th generation plugin I've used over the years, starting when widgets first appeared, until now. This is by far the best of the lot. Not necessarily the easiest, mind you, but the one that allows you to specify exactly the conditions where you want widgets to appear, with the least amount of work. It also handles all those wordpress-specific pages that you may not even know exist (e.g. custom taxonomy archive pages of custom post types)
Works like a charm.
Everyone should use this plugin does what it says.
This plugin solved my conundrum of trying to show different widgets on different pages. It's very intuitive and works without any problems. Highly recommended!!
After going over documentation and reading about coding options I decided to give this a try. In under 2 minutes I had made my changes and everything else is working as expected too.
perfect, thank you so much for this great work!
I use this on all of my larger sites. Usually on these sites the client wants different widget sets for different "sections" of the site, but the plugin is so much more powerful than that.
I have four stars because it can be confusing, especially with large sites. Something I'd love to see is an info box (with a hot link) on the sidebar of the page editor that describes which widgets are being displayed in which sidebar area for that page.
Great plugin with some minor room for improvement.
