Today’s Sweet Plugin is another WordPress plugin that tweaks how the widgets system works. It’s called Widget Logic, and it might just save you the trouble of creating extra sidebar areas.
The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.
Widget Logic allows you to specify which templates, using WordPress’ conditional tags, a sidebar widget will show up on. Instead of creating a new sidebar area for a few slightly tweaked templates here and there, using Widget Logic widgets can be loaded conditionally based on the template you’re viewing.
Do you use Widget Logic to improve the flexibility of your own sidebar system? What methods do you use to wrangle your sidebars to your will?
Video recorded with version 0.48 of Widget Logic, running WordPress 3.1.3.
