How to Show or Hide Widgets on Specific WordPress Pages

Are you wanting more control over what widgets appear on certain content on your site? There are conditional tags you can use if you are comfortable with PHP but for a beginner, we’re going to use a plugin to help simplify the process. In this video, we will show you how to easily show or hide widgets on specific WordPress pages.

For this tutorial we will be using the Widget Context plugin found here:

Widget Context

With the plugin activated you can go under Appearance, Widgets in your admin area to go see your different widgets. When you open up one of your currently added widgets to customize where it is displayed.

The plugin can show or hide on a custom post type, a specific page or post, based on the word count of the page, or specify the URL for the content.

  1. I'm unable to implement Target by URL option. Could you provide an example on how to specify the url? I'm trying to show widgets only on a specific page. Thanks in advance!
