Fantastic plugin - dedicated and cmmitted developer
By , for WP 4.0.1

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!!

This is too simple :-)

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.

awesome!

perfect, thank you so much for this great work!

A must for larger sites
By , for WP 4.0

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.

Effective but not great
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin lets you do anything you want with your widgets. It's great in many ways, but there are problems.

One thing I've found is that it can sometimes be a little buggy -- you have to be really careful about performing operations in the correct order! To fix glitches, I've usually had to delete the widget and start from scratch with a new one, which can be time-consuming if it's already been used a lot.

Also, I wish the flow of the entire process was smoother. For example, there's too much saving and reloading when managing widgets from the post edit screen -- due to the necessary order of operations.

And, it would be nice if widget options appeared in a pop-up window on the widgets edit screen instead of loading an entire new page.

Likewise, currently deleting and resetting dynamic widgets is done on a separate screen, but it would be much better if this was done directly from the widgets screen.

So, while I like what this plugin does, and feel that it works pretty well, there's a lot of room for improvement.

Still, I'm very thankful to have the use of this plugin. Should future updates resolve these issues, I'd happily return to increase my rating :)

there is nothing better

no wordpress plugin without this

One of the Best Plugins of any kind
By , for WP 4.0

I use this plugin on every site. It will make your life easier and reduce/eliminate the need for creating multiple templates just to control sidebar content. It is a close battle between this and Gravity Forms for my top plugin. It is that good.
