Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to let you know about this brand new free plugin of mine that will help you manage your widgets better. I hope this will be very helpful.

Cheers,

Interesting! This is pretty nifty.

One thought: wondering if the option to display widget areas “manually with PHP” fits with the purpose of the plugin? If they can add the PHP to display the widget in the theme, they can also add PHP to register the widget area as well. But I suppose it has the benefit of not having to manually write out the widget registration code, and keeping widget area registration portable from theme to theme.

No big deal, just a thought.

Again, really cool plugin!

Thank your very much for your suggestion and glad you like the plugin :slight_smile: The manual PHP code option is to cover more areas just in case the user want to re-use the widget areas aside from before or after the post contents. Other possibility that I thought of, is that users can create sidebars that are manually added on premium themes templates and re-use them again and again easily on new installation via WordPress export since it’s using post type.

Oh, didn’t know that. That makes even more sense then.

Best of luck with it!
