Dynamic Widgets 1.0

This is the first release of Dynamic Widgets. A plugin for WordPress which gives you more control over your widgets. It lets you dynamicly place widgets on WordPress pages by excluding or including rules for the homepage, single posts, pages, categories and archives.

The plugin has been written out of frustration Sabine from (Warning: Shoes addict ahead) stilettogirl.nl had. She wanted to have more control over the widgets. After looking into a couple of already existing plugins which were not satisfactory, she came to me. Of course I couldn’t say no to her and ‘Dynamic Widgets’  was born.

To demonstrate the plugin, you’ll not see a ‘Recent Posts’ widget at the left side in the sidebar on the front page. On other pages (About, this single post, the Dynamic Widgets Category page) the ‘Recent Posts’ widget is displayed.

The widget ‘Dynamic Widgets’ which shows the latest release and a download link of the plugin is only displayed at the front page, the Dynamic Widgets page and the Dynamic Widgets Category page.

  • I’m so happy with this plugin. You’ve done a tremendous job! Thank you so much. 🙂 Very cool you’ve released the plugin to the public. I think a lot of WordPress users will love it.

    • I already tried 2 plugins of that kind. Display widget is simple but doesn’t allow to select all single posts in a defined category. Widget Logic seems to do what you desire but you must write your own conditionnal tags. Dynamic widgets is the best of two worlds … I hope the widget will survive next WordPress upgrades, it would be difficult to leave it once used in a site.
