Display Different Content To Different Users

Written by Bec on March 13, 2016 – 6:43 AM -

WPMUDEV recently sent me a reminder about a free plugin they offer: Custom Sidebars. It is available to download for free from WordPress.org. I wrote about this plugin back in 2014, but wanted to put it out there for those of you that are new to the Adult Blog Builder website. The plugin lets you display different content to different users in your sidebar and footers.

With Custom Sidebars you can create as many unique sidebar configurations for your site as needed – show one set of sidebars to first-time visitors and another to members, set up sidebars for specific pages or categories, or for special landing pages, you name it – and trigger them to display as needed.

With this plugin you can customize every widget area by setting new default sidebars for a group of posts or pages easily, keeping the chance of changing them individually.

For example, you can change…

Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a category.
Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a post-type.
Sidebars for archives (by category, post-type, author, tag).
Sidebars for the main blog page.
Sidebars for search results.

It’s a must-have plugin, especially if you’re running a membership site and want to personalize the browsing experience for new and returning visitors. WPMU-DEV also offers a pro version of the plugin that is included free with a WPMU-DEV membership.

Widgets – More New Blog Toys

Written by Bec on January 6, 2009 – 8:30 AM -

I don’t know if you’ve seen it yet, but when I saw this list of WIDGETS available at WordPress it was like Christmas all over again! Whoo-hoo! More new blog toys!! I didn’t even get past the B listings before I had to download 4 of them! And I actually installed and activated the BDP Comments Widget so that I could show a snippet of commentary and not just the author and post title that you get with the recent comments widget all ready bundled up into WordPress. I think it looks pretty snazzy on my sidebar now!

This is going to be a short post, I have Widgets C thru Z to check out yet!   ttyl  😉
