Best sidebar manager I've found

With WooSidebars you can put a specific sidebar on almost(?) any page, post, CPT, template, etc., etc. Part of every website I build.

I wrote the code for to put custom sidebars in diferent categories, but when I test this plugin in one of my blogs, I'm adding the plugin in all my webs.

Thanks so much!

Great plugin
By , for WP 3.6

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/.

Doesn't Save Values
By , for WP 4.4.2

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.

(Update: their support team was quick to fix my problem, and I've finally figured out how to update my review.)

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.
