Displaying widgets on individual pages

Updated: February 13, 2013, 3:07 pm

We recommend you to install Widget Logic plugin in order to be able to control which widget can be shown on which page.

After the plug-in is installed, a new “Widget Logic” input box is displayed in the options box of every widget you use. In this box, you can type a series of WordPress conditional tags to control where exactly the widget is displayed.

Some common conditions:

  • Display only on the front page: is_front_page()
  • Display on all pages except front page: !is_front_page()
  • Display only on the home page: is_home()
  • Display only on individual posts: is_single()
  • Display only on pages: is_page()
  • Display on archive pages (category, tag, etc.): is_archive()
  • Display on search results pages: is_search()
  • Display on all pages except the home page: !is_home()
  • Display on “Advertise” or “Contact” page: is_page('advertise') || is_page('contact')
  • no value : widget will be visible on all pages
