Add as many sidebars (widget areas) as you need. Creating sidebars(widget areas) is unlimited.
WMPL plugin support so you can display sidebars and widgets based on language.
Sidebars can be displayed based on User role too.
Here are some examples:
Lets say you would like to display a certain set of widgets on your blog page, different set of widgets on your portfolio, and different set on your contact page. All that on the spot where the primary sidebar of your theme is located. You can do that by creating 3 sidebars replacing the primary sidebar and set each custom sidebar to display on blog or portfolio or contacts.
If you have an advanced theme that has some extra widget areas you can replace those as well. Practically any sidebar(widget area) can be replaced.
This is very easy and fun to do and requires no coding knowledge at all.
How Sidebar Manager Light works:
- Create a custom sidebar
- Choose which sidebar to replace
- Choose pages that will display the new sidebar
