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/.

On Every Site I Develop
By , for WP 3.5.2

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.

Essential
By , for WP 4.1.1

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.

Best UI of any sidebar manager
By , for WP 3.5.1

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 love this plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

The ability to create custom widget areas, such as sidebars and footers, in your site is a critical piece when it comes to making your site user-friendly. The free WooSidebars plugin does exact that and allows you to assign custom widget areas to pages, posts, taxonomies, templates and archives.

If you have ever been frustrated with the fact that you have to show the same sidebar or footer widget in every post and page on your site, this plugin is your solution. It allows you to create custom sidebars and footers that you can assign to specific pages, posts, categories, archives, etc.

That is the beauty of this plugin!

Nice 'n easy

...I have found you EARLIER!
This plugin is chocolate cake!

This is awesome!
By , for WP 3.5

Really, this is awesome.

The only suggestion I could ever give is: try to find a way not to fill my widgets admin page with a ton of widget areas, they take space.

But, after all, it's a MINOR thing.
And I guess it's necessary. After all, if you're dying to have less widget areas, you can simply create less of them! ;)

Besides, this plugin is working like a charm. Great work!
