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 :)
