Widget Logic is a free plugin on WordPress that works exclusively with widgets. When you install this handy plug-in it adds an extra option to each widget that enables you to define where the widget should and shouldn’t be. This is a great tool when you want to have specific content on certain parts of your website.
Here are some examples of widget logic that are commonly used:
- is_page() – if viewing a page.
- !is_page() – if viewing anything other than a page (Note that the use of “!” turns the condition into if is not).
After downloading and activating, you can find the newly installed plug-in by going to Appearance > Widgets. After clicking on your widget of choice, you should see the new addition on the bottom of the menu, shown below:
