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.
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!
Seriously, what? How? Why have I been...
Thank you so much for creating this plugin.
...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!
This plugin is very helfull ... but I don't understand how to insert it into post pages ..
Somebody can help me
Thank you very much
I'm faced with rebuilding a site with many submenus. It's really perplexing to have to spend hours dealing with Widgets and Sidebars to keep it all straight in my head, as the WP default management of this kind of thing is STILL neither simple nor intuitive, and always takes me a lot of time to get through.
I installed this plug-in, and that was all I needed; done in 15 minutes. Amazing piece of work! It gives WP users the kind of simple, modular control over Sidebar content that users of other CMS (such as Joomla!) have had for years. A piece of my next paycheck from this client will go to the developer. Oh, and it works perfectly in WP 4.2.2
This is so slick and easy to use I could cry. It would have saved me HOURS if I'd installed it first. Fantastic plugin!
Works as advertised - custom sidebars without having to modify my theme. Intergration with WordPress is super clean. I'm using WP 4.2.2 and no issues so far, this plugin is a delight! Thanks!
I've been looking for such plugin long time now! Only question, where or how do I delete sidebars, rename them, etc...? I can't find such option anywhere in the wp interface!
This plugin works well if you just want to replace the main sidebar on pages, nothing fancy. You can create the custom sidebar for a page very easily, or use the same custom sidebar for multiple pages.
It doesn't do very much more than that, which holds true it's name "Simple Page Sidebars".
Just the right amount of functionality. Perfect.
