Wordpress Sidebars


#1
Hey,

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?

Thanks!
Soren

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 :)

fantastic matey :) ahh the joys of Wordpress plugins :D
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.

Yeah not too bad, just pretty grimy :). You must be delighted that you're leaving the big smoke soon. At least I'm going to Copenhagen tomorrow for the Bank Holiday weekend. A little less grimy there. :D
