Documentation

Target by URL

The “Target by URL” is a very powerful feature with a lot of flexibility for targeting sections of your website based on the request URLs. It was inspired by a similar feature in the Drupal CMS.

  • Use relative URLs such as page/sub-page instead of absolute URLs https://example.com/page/sub-page.

  • Relative are URLs more flexible and make the logic portable between different domains and server environments.

Wildcards

Use the wildcard symbol * for matching dynamic parts of the URL. For example:

  • topic/widgets/* to match all posts in the widgets category, if your permalink structure is set to /topic/%category%/%postname%.

  • page-slug/* to match all child pages of the page-slug parent page.

  • Use a trailing ?* to capture URL with all query arguments such as utm_source, etc. For example, for every blog/post-slug also include blog/post-slug?*.

I have used it for a while. I like it since it is more intuitive than all the other similar plugins.

A way to target what widgets appear on a site, without having the widget editing menu come to a crawl. Thanks for saving my sanity!

I started out intending to install this plugin then got seduced into installing "Content Aware Sidebars" by its self promotion (#1 widget area plugin...), by the fact it was updated more recently, and by the number of reviews. This was a mistake. First of all, Content Aware Sidebars doesn't actually give you all the features it promises you up front, it gives you 40% of them and then asks for cash for the rest. Secondly, it doesn't actually work as well as Widget Context. It doesn't allow you to select to show or not show a widget based on the two special "posts" and "front" type pages. Widget Context gives control based on any kind of page or post, or even by URL. Fantastic plugin. Open source. No surprises after installation. Well done!

Just what I wanted to hide widgets on certain locations, works perfectly thanks to the dev.
