Limited use for frequently sites
By , for WP 4.6

This would be a great plugin for smaller less frequently updated sites but for mine a large travel site it is not much use.

Whenever you create a new page it includes all the widgets and you must go into each widget and disable it for each new page or amendment.

Sorry, but this is simply impractical as it takes hours on my site to make changes to one page.

Excellent functionality, but too much resources needed
By , for WP 4.0

First of all I'd like to thank author for the great job done. It is really powerfull manager with so much options, it was very usefull for me. It's a pity, but just for few month. My MySQL started crashing but I couldn't get why, P3 plugin profiler showed nothing, so I moved to more powerfull server, but it kept crashing, so I moved again (VPS 70$ per month) thinking that traffic is too big for resources. But it didn't solve the problem. Then I got to kmow about plugin Query Monitor which shows all queries send to database. This is how I discovered that Widget Manager Light was sending 150-200 queries per every single page load. Disabling the plugin solved the issue at last.
