WooSidebars adds functionality to display different widgets in a sidebar, according to a context (for example, a specific page or a category).
After creating a couple of unique sidebars for specific pages and getting all excited, the "unique" sidebars showed up on every page on my site except the "home" page, obviously not what I wanted.
I set it up for only select category codes, but on every single post on every single category there is a check mark for the unique sidebar, which I cannot remove.
Disappointing and zero support.
Great, great plugin. Easy to understand and easy to use. I've just published a short review (in spanish): http://www.labitacoradeltigre.com/2013/08/19/la-magia-de-los-widgets-de-wordpress-6/.
the plugin does not save the values. I had to go down to version 1.2.0
This plugin looks very promising, but it would not save the pages that I wanted to override with my replacement sidebar. I would select the WooCommerce pages, but when I clicked save, my selections would not be remembered.
We use this all the time. After I was "forced" to try it with a wootheme theme, I figured out that this is the "end game" of sidebar customization.
I've previously used a combination of Flexipages and Widget logic to create custom menus for different sections. This approach has worked very well but Woosidebars is easier to manage. My only criticism would be that if you are using WordPress as a CMS and you have a large number of pages then it can get a little bit unwieldy.
This plugin has the most intuitive interface of any sidebar manager that I've used. It's very flexible and it just works. Fantastic tool for nearly all themes.
I have used this and recommended it for so many sites, and never have had a problem. Flexibility and ease of use is superior. I know there are others that don't create separate sidebars but I find this one is easier for the casual WP user to understand.
And there is no better way to create a site then to use custom sidebars.
Nice 'n easy to use. It's flexibilty in choosing makes this Plugin very good. Should be basic in every template.
Allows you to create multiple dynamic sidebars for you WordPress site, take control of you sidebars with WooSidebars
