works the way it's supposed to

Works just fine, the little bit of logic necessary isn't bad as far plugins go.

Simple yet effective
By , for WP 3.5.2

I genuinely don't understand why more people haven't rated this plugin 5 stars. It's simple, lightweight, and gloriously useful. Have you ever wanted a sidebar to display on some pages but not others? Maybe you want a certain banner ad in a text widget to display on the homepage, but not other pages? This is the setup I have on my site, and Widget Logic makes it as easy as a line of 'code' (I say code, but it's not like you need programming knowledge to use this plugin: snippets are provided in the FAQ) at the bottom of the widget.

Recommended. Don't know where I'd be without it, actually.

A favorite for coders

Widget Logic is something I put on every single site I build. Its power and flexibility allow me to do amazing things with widgets. Highly recommended.

Best thing ever happened to the sidebar widgets
By , for WP 3.5.1

Great plugin, we all already know that.

Also the author of this plugin seems like a very good person that he has this "donation to Cancer Research UK." link at the plugin's description page.

This is a really great plugin!

Need this on every install

Unless you are using some framework with these functions built in, this Plugin is a must have.

frankly, I prefer this solution over built in because it has more control.

Powerful - need to understand logic
By , for WP 3.5.1

Finally found a solution - wished for one of the "Custom Sidebar" plugins to work with my theme..., Pagelines..., and didn't want to switch themes at the moment, so Widget logic is the answer !!

Found one issue - if you mistype a function name, like

try to use: is_page("page")

but, you type: iF_page("page")

...that is substituting an F for an S, you will crash wordpress, and need your host to fix this - you won't be able to login to your site. But, when you are using a coding-centric plug-in, you need to be ready for this.

I still love it 5 stars - need to type slower. ;-)

Great plugin! It took a little bit of reading to figure out how show widget on only one page, but otherwise it works great!

Create a tutorial with some screenshots that show a picture of a an actual widget with proper code (is_page(123) or whatever) inserted in box.

Then create a ton more examples.

Without a doubt, a very powerful plugin for those who know what to do with it, but less so for clients.
