crashed the site

I installed, activated and it crashed the site. POS

seems not compatible

By obsidiaan on January 16, 2023

If it works, it would be a great plugin however I encountered two major issues.
- When entering existing categories, the plugin cannot find them. they will not show up in the list.
- When setting the filter on what page & categorie to show the sidebar, it will ignore these filter settings and will replace the sidebar everywhere.

It Was Good ...

By cambeul on November 14, 2022

It was good, but suddenly I cannot see/access the widgets because of ads. I installed the advertised items, but now it is just blank where the ads were.

Thanks for the plugin!

NOT compatible with the new widgets edit WP 5.8

By huyrealproperty on July 21, 2021

Custom sidebars is great plugin, but I got a notice that "Custom Sidebars plugin is NOT compatible with the new widgets edit screen (powered by Gutenberg). Install the official Classic Widgets plugin if you want to continue using it" when I update Wordpress 5.8 version. Does anyone also have this notice? and is there any effect? I use Flatsome Theme, and everything still looks good.

Perfect tool

This is a really perfect tool. Works without any problems didn't have any installation or configuration problems.

Doesn't Replace

By bloohair on April 29, 2021

Really easy to use and set up. But unfortunately it didn't replace the default sidebar on the page I needed it for. I used the new sidebar feature on the back end and it appeared there, but not seen on the front end.

Great plugin, simple configuration

Excelent Plugin

By pmdelgado1 on January 5, 2021

This plugin saved me hours of headaches with a premium theme that was not flexible at all. I've been using it for almost 3 years and has never broken my site. Thank you
