    Is it possible to restrict the content of a sidebar in Wordpress to a specific page?

    I'm building a site where I'm using the plain 'text widget' but I want different content in the widget on different pages but still be able to use the same template for all pages. Is there a way I can have mutiple text widgets and assign them to different pages?

  2. I would look into regular expression Soren, that is how you control things that show on certain pages in Wordpress... but it is complicated.. :) hope that helps :)

    Haha yeah :D. This really is a great plugin though. Something I think should be in the WP core as WP is moving more and more towards being a micro CMS as well as a blogging platform.

    The only downside about this plugin is that you have to use conditional tags in the widgets which is just not super user friendly for a non savvy client. Would be nice with a GUI instead where you could just select what pages you want your widgets on.
  9. yeah thats usually the problem with those sorts of plugins.. they aren't particularly user friendly... but at least its all sorted mate :D

    how are things with you in grimy London today?
