So this plugin isn’t actually called ‘Hide a Widget’ – but that’s exactly what this plugin does, sort of. It basically allows you to decide which pages you want specific plugins to appear on- so if you want to set up a sales page without any widgets on it (other than maybe an opt-in box or a video)- then this plugin will do exactly that. It really works great with all StudioPress themes as well since the StudioPress themes come with a few different page templates built right in (ex: if you don’t want any of the widgets to display on a specific page – you might want to select the ‘full width’ page template under attributes when editing or creating the page).
After you’ve installed the plugin, which by the way is called Widget Locationizer, the options or settings for the widget will appear in EACH widget. I’ll do a few screenshots here to show you what it looks like. Keep in mind that when you go to edit the actual widget, you’ll need to know the page/post id or category/tag that you don’t want the widget to appear on.
Here’s what the plugin settings look like once it’s installed:
The last option that got cut off there is the Do Follow/No Follow option – just select what you want and make sure you save changes! That’s it! super easy and now you can decide where you want your widgets to show up! To download the plugin, just go to plugins in your dashboard, select ‘Add New’, then type Widget Locationizer in the top search box. Just click install & activate and you’re good to go.
