Lightweight Widget Area Plugin – Content Aware Sidebars

Descripción

CAS is the Fastest and Most Powerful WordPress Sidebar Plugin yet. Create tailored widget areas in seconds.

You can optimize conversion rates, boost on-site SEO, upsell products, and much more by displaying different widget areas on different conditions.

If your website is big or in growth, CAS is the ideal solution for you.

Add Unlimited Sidebars & Widget Areas

Replace your theme sidebars on different conditions, or insert widget areas with shortcodes. With the All-in-one Sidebar Manager, you can easily activate and deactivate widget areas, and you can even schedule them for specific times.

Sidebars – Quick Select© lets you add or select widget areas directly when editing a post or page.

Show or Hide Widgets on Any Page (Yes, any)

Create a post sidebar, a page sidebar, a category sidebar, or any custom sidebar you need. The following Display Conditions are available out of the box:

  • Posts, Pages & Custom Post Types
  • Content with Tags, Categories, or Custom Taxonomies
  • Content written by select Authors
  • Page Templates
  • Blog Page & Post Type Archives
  • Author Archives
  • Taxonomy Archives
  • Front Page, Search Results, 404 Not Found Page
  • bbPress Profiles, Forums & Topics
  • BuddyPress Profile Sections
  • Languages (WPML, Polylang, qTranslate X, TranslatePress, Transposh)
  • Pods Pages

You can even combine conditions in any way you like! E.g. target all posts in a select category and written by a specific author.

Customize Your Widget Areas Your Way

Without writing any code, you can modify the HTML and CSS classes of widget areas, widgets, and widget titles. You get full control over the look and feel of your sidebars and widget areas, no matter what theme you use.

Sidebar Visibility lets you elegantly hide any widget area for logged-out users.

The Most User-friendly Widget Manager

If you have more than just a few widgets and widget areas, you will love the Enhanced Widget Manager. When adding new widgets to sidebars, Live Search will find widgets in seconds, and the smart split-screen gives you a much better overview of your widget options.

1-Click Sidebar Activation© lets you activate or deactivate widget areas instantly.

Sidebar Plugin Integrations & Support

CAS automatically supports Custom Post Types and Taxonomies created by any plugin or theme. Built-in support for some of the most popular WordPress plugins means that you e.g. can create WooCommerce sidebars for select products or BuddyPress sidebars for your members.

FAQ

Do I need to know widget logic PHP code?

Of course not.

CAS is praised by users for its unparalleled sidebar and widget visibility options. It’s the only plugin that allows you to display widget areas on literally any condition without any code.

Will this sidebar plugin work with my theme?

Yes!

If your theme already has WordPress sidebars and widget areas, you can create new custom sidebars to replace, merge with or hide those on certain conditions.

You can also display custom sidebars using the sidebar shortcode [ca-sidebar id=»»] anywhere in your content.

If your theme has a built-in sidebar generator, it is recommended to disable it and/or only use CAS for maximum speed and compatibility.

Will this plugin work with page builders?

Yes!

Many users already mix CAS with popular page builder plugins such as Elementor, SiteOrigin Page Builder, Beaver Builder, and Visual Composer.

Can I really display sidebars and widget areas on any page?

Yep.

In the Sidebar Editor, you can select where, when and to whom your sidebar should be displayed. Create a sidebar for each page, a sidebar for posts in a category, or any sidebar you need, all in a user-friendly UI.

You can also select sidebars directly when you’re editing a post or page.
