At times certain widgets need to be hidden or displayed from certain pages or posts only. For example, maybe you want to remove ads in the sidebar of a post and only display the widget on the homepage. Previously, I made an article about How to View and Hide WordPress Widgets, but this article explains how to use a plugin, namely the Display Widget plugin, but now I will make an article about a list of 6 plugins that you can also use to display or hide WordPress widgets, of course, each plugin has its own advantages and disadvantages. For this reason, I am providing a list of other plugins, because the Display widget plugin may not be able to satisfy you in terms of features.
So in this article I will show you some plugins that allow you to show or hide widgets on certain pages or posts as you wish.
6 Plugins To Show and Hide WordPress Widgets
Here is a list of 6 plugins that you can choose to show and hide widgets on your WordPress site. With the plugins below, you can set the widget to only show or hide on certain posts or pages according to your wishes.
1. Logic Widget
This plugin adds a code box (text field) in each widget where you have to define conditions for displaying the widget using php code. This is quite simple if you know php and need to implement some simple conditions.
This plugin adds a set of configuration options in each widget box, where you can choose to either hide or show widgets in a set of pages or posts with id or just check the options. You can see a tutorial about this widget here
Widget Context Plugin is another plugin which is similar to Display Widget and allows to show or hide widgets in selected areas such as pages, posts, archives or categories. This makes it possible to target specific pages using urls.
The Restrict Widget plugin is a solution for widget management in WordPress. This plugin allows you to easily control each widget that will appear or hide on some sidebars and duplicate widgets on certain posts or pages. You can also set a user who can manage this widget, if your site allows multiple users to log in with each level.
Dynamic Widget gives you full control on which pages the widget is displayed on. It allows you to dynamically show or hide widgets on WordPress pages by setting logical rule conditions on widgets with just a few mouse clicks. You don’t need to have any knowledge of PHP like using logic widgets. You can set conditional rules by role, Date, Browser, mobile device, Theme Templates, Language (WPML or qTranslate), URL, Homepage, Single Post, Attachments, Pages, Author, Categories, Tags, Archives, Page Error, Search page, Custom Post Type, Custom Post Archive, Custom Taxonomy, Category, BuddyPress Component, BuddyPress Group, etc.
WP Page Widget takes a different approach to controlling widgets. This plugin allows you to define a widget for each post or page that is right inside the editor area.
This plugin is useful when you need a very high level of precision at the individual post / page level to select which widgets to display.
And those are some of the list of plugins that I can share with all of you, hopefully this article can make it easier for you to find the right plugins for you to use in your WordPress site widget management. 🙂
