Dynamic Widgets gives you full control on which pages a widget will display. It lets you dynamicly show or hide widgets on WordPress pages.
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.
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 :)
no wordpress plugin without this
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.
No matter on which pages you want your widget to appear this plug-in can make it. Great stuff and there is also a good support!!!
Works great with my website. I was able to use it very easily.
great plug in.
We were almost literally banging our heads on the wall when i did some last-second googling and found out about this lovely little plug-in. Saved our webpage to say the least. Love it!
P.S - works on WP 4.0 so .. there you go! :)
Saved me alot of time! Best plugin around!!!!
