Excellent - powerful, flexible and easy to use
By , for WP 4.1.1

Been using this plugin on multiple client sites for several years.

Having tried all the other options I keep coming back to this one - reliable with all the flexibility I need to manage widgets across large sites and a great user friendly UI (in latest versions).

Practically easy

This is easier than woo sidebar with grouping mode and pick a very context and content that you want to put the widget or not.

Tested and does not work
By , for WP 4.1

Tested on multiple installs and no effect. Widget did not show.
Also you cannot select specific pages, only types of pages and posts.
This plugin needs A LOT of work before it was released.

The latest version just took Widget Context to the next level, allowing super simple filtering for widget output. The new ability to filter by post type is sooooooo useful. Been waiting for this for ages. Thanks!

Really makes WordPress a usable CMS

An easy way to have total control over what appears on your site, especially when combining it with customized templates.

Amazing Plugin

This plugin does exactly what it says. Extremely easy to use and user friendly. It's great being able to show widgets on specific URL's. Great work!

Settings Sometimes Disappear - Otherwise Great Plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

I've used this plugin many, many times across multiple websites and overall have been very happy with it. I've had issues with the settings not saving correctly after they've been set though. I haven't been able to decipher a pattern when this happens, if there even is one, so I'm not sure why it happens. Luckily, the settings are easy to redo so I normally don't make a fuss about it unless it caused something embarrassing on this site (I did notice some of my client's content missing once -- that wasn't fun!).

All in all a good plugin, though not 100% reliable always.
