Works great
By , for WP 4.5.2

Initially I was disappointing it didn't work on custom post types, but then bothered to read the instructions.

The developer had bothered to put down exactly how to do this:
function myprefix_init() {
add_post_type_support( '{{post_type}}', 'simple-page-sidebars' );
}
add_action( 'init', 'myprefix_init' );

Works a treat! Very flexible. Great job.

Great plugin Works good with my wordpress theme
By , for WP 4.4.2

Using a child theme of Genesis.
Had a problem with configuring genesis at first that I thought was this plugin but it turns out I made some config mistakes in my theme. ... this plugin works great and does just what is says:
1. it allows you to create a sidebar
2. it allows you to assign a specific sidebar to a specific page.
3. it's simple!
Thanks guys!

Simple, elegant and easy to use custom sidebars
By , for WP 4.4

Simple Page Sidebars is exactly that. We use it in conjunction with the TwentyFourteen and WordPress 4.4 for more flexibility and Simple Page Sidebars works like a built-in feature. Perfect.

Awesome and easy to use

I've try a lot of plugins to build custom sidebars, all of them had different problems: some of them didn't work and others were so complicated to use.

This one is easy to use and works like a charm.

Thanks developer!

Love this, thank you!

Was looking for a way to show different sidebars on my site, came across this one and it couldn't be any easier.

Tried many similar plugins and they all let me down in one way or another. Not this one.

It does not let you pick sidebars for posts (hence the plugin name) out of the box, but the author posted a simple code snippet to add to your theme functions file in a support thread and again, easily added the option for different blog post sidebars.

It is now 5 stars for sure :)

Thank you for creating this!

This is so good it needs to be a default feature

Seriously, what? How? Why have I been...

Thank you so much for creating this plugin.

As the name says...

...Simple and lightweight. Small footprint, plugin is only 35K.

I want to use it to create custom sidebars for specific pages and it works perfectly.

I like the fact that you create the custom sidebar in the page itself and then you click a button and it updates the widgets page and opens it with the custom sidebar ready to be filled with widgets.

Thoughtful efficient and intuitive design!
