Page Manage Widget

The infamous MaxBlogPress plugins are being removed from the WordPress repository. In order to activate these plugins, users were required to submit their email address for daily spamming.

I have rewritten one such plugin. It is still listed in the repository, but if you would like access to this plugin without the required opt-in, and written in the updated WordPress 2.8 format to make it compatible with my Display Widgets plugin. You can download here.

This is a full featured multiple instance supported page manage widget with configurable options to control parameters like sort options, exclude pages, depth etc features in your sidebar.

Features

  • Multiple instance of the widget can be created
  • Easy to use widget control panel
  • Multiple pages parameter configuring options

Display Widgets WordPress Plugin

September 2017 Update: Major security vulnerabilities have been added to this plugin since we turned it over. If you are still using it, update to version 2.7. This plugin will not receive any updates in the future. The WordPress plugin team has shut it down, but added one last version so you can safely update to get rid of the malicious code. 2.7 is exactly the same as the last version we released before selling the plugin (v2.05).

Since the WordPress plugin team has taken it over, there will be no updates in the future. If you’re looking for an alternative, try Widget Options. They have even built a migration tool to move seamlessly from Display Widgets to Widget Options.

May 2017 Update: This plugin has been purchased by another company. If you’re looking for support, you can contact them at WordPress.org.

Change your sidebar content with each page. Avoid creating multiple sidebars and duplicating widgets by adding check boxes to each widget in the admin (as long as it is written in WordPress version 2.8 format) which will either show or hide the widgets on every site page. Great for use with Thesis theme, or just to avoid extra coding.
