Restrict Widgets

All in one widgets and sidebars management in WordPress. Allows you to hide or display widgets on specified pages and restrict access for users.

Restrict Widgets is all in one solution for widget management in WordPress. It lets you easily control the pages that each widget will appear on and avoid creating multiple sidebars and duplicating widgets. You can also set who can manage widgets, which sidebars and widgets will be available to selected users, which widget options will be available and how it will be displayed.

By default, Hide widget on selected is enabled with no options selected, so all current widgets will continue to display on all pages.

For more information, check out plugin page at dFactory or plugin support forum.

  • Hide or display each widget on selected pages, posts, categories, custom taxonomies, custom post types, single posts, archives, special pages, for logged in or logged out users, current language, mobile device and so on
