This plugin makes wordpress's standard feature "widgets" even better!

Want to display different widgets on a particular page only?

If you install this plugin, you can create a widget area(sidebar) and replace or concatenate it with an existing widget area.

You can create a new widget area without touching the theme.
You can display the created widget area by specifying a specific page, category, or tag.

How To Use

  1. Create a widget area in Appearance > Widget Areas
  2. Put the widget in the created widget area through Appearance > Widgets menu in WordPress

Description of settings

A description of the widget area post type settings.

Sidebar Definitions

Each corresponds to the argument of the register_sidebar().

register_sidebar(array(
    'name'          => Name
    'description'   => Description
    'class'         => Class
    'before_widget' => Before/After Widget
    'after_widget'  => Before/After Widget
    'before_title'  => Before/After Widget Title, Title Class
    'after_title'   => Before/After Widget Title
));

Display

Action

Manual, Merge, Replace
There are three options for setting the display position: Manual, Merge, Replace.

Target Widget

If you select Merge or Replace in the Action, it is the setting for which widget area to perform the action.

Position

If you select Merge in the Action, it is the setting to display before or after the widget area.

Example 1
Action: Merge
Target widget: Home page
Position: After
Then, this widget area will be displayed after the home page widget area.

Example 2
Action: Replace
Target Widget: Sidebar
Then this widget area will be displayed instead of the sidebar widget area.

However, if you keep Example 2, the sidebar will be replaced on all pages.
Therefore, set the condition in the Conditions meta box.

Conditions

It is a condition that the widget area is displayed.
You can specify the post ID on the “Post” tab and the category on the “Term” tab.

For example, under the condition of Example 2, further
Visibility Range: Select Pages
Posts & Pages: 98765
Then, only the sidebar of the post with post ID 98765 can display this widget area instead of the sidebar widget area.

Also, under the conditions of Example 2.
Visibility Range: Select Pages
Term: Uncategorized
Then, only articles belonging to the uncategorized category can display this widget area instead of the sidebar widget area.

The other two are for the action “Manual”.

PHP Code

This widget area will be displayed where this code is located.
It is supposed to be used by pasting it on the theme.

Shortcode

This widget area will be displayed where this code is located.
You can use it anywhere, such as articles and custom HTML for widgets.

  1. Upload plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Is it available on the block editor from managing widgets?

Yes. You can use it in that environment.
Or you can use it with the Classic Widgets plugin.

Can it be used for themes that have not released the widget function?

Sure, go ahead. But it may not be very useful.
