Dynamic Widgets 1.5.16

It seems I forgot to write a short notice for version 1.5.15. Anyway, version 1.5.16 has just been released that fixes a bug or actually a notice being thrown:

Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in dynwid_worker.php on line 526

when using PHP 7.3 or higher.

Thanks for your continuing support for this plugin. Even I’m not very active in adding new features. I still have a wishlist in my issue tracker which I’m not sure which items are still applicable or not.


Dynamic Widgets 1.5.14

After more then one year finally a new version of Dynamic Widgets is released. Version 1.5.14 is here!

This version fixes a bug that was introduced since WordPress 5 preventing the ability to set the Pages default to “No”. Kudo’s to WordPress forum user @fjaeker for finding and debugging this issue.

Thanks everybody for your continued support to this plugin, even after a long silence from my side in doing updates on it.

Today, after almost one year of silence, I’ve released a new version of Dynamic Widgets. Version 1.5.13 is now ready for download. WordPress Update system will pick it up shortly in your install.

Not much has changed since the previous version. Most notable is the addition of the domain name / servername module. When you use more domain names in one install, you can now filter your widgets on that too. Thanks for the financial support of HANNA Instruments, Mexico to make this module possible.



I’ve just released version 1.5.12 of Dynamic Widgets. This is release bumps the compatible version for WordPress to 4.6. A few things have been changed tho which might have an impact on users that (still) use QTranslate or one of it’s forks.

Because of the many forks that have been created and all going in a different direction not honoring the original code of QTranslate I had no other choice then (temporary) removing support for QTranslate and all it’s forks. Supporting a fork would mean breaking another fork. I can not allow that my plugin breaks another plugin or even worse a complete WordPress site.

Other changes that have been done in this release:

  • Added conditional check for client IP address (handy when using CLI)
  • Added support for featured image

When you do a manual install of the plugin, as always make sure to completely remove the old plugin directory before installing the new version and do a deactivate – activate cycle of it.


With the latest version of Dynamic Widgets, qTranslate-X support was added in favor of the abandoned qTranslate and mQtranslate projects. Some DW users are (still) using mQtranslate which now gives errors in the DW admin. Also it turns out that also qTranslate-X has been abandoned. Or at least none of the projects are found in the repository anymore.

Therefor I’ve decided to (temporary) suspend support for qTranslate and it’s forks until a solution is in sight.

For the DW users who have an error because of qTranslate, can use a special version of DW I submitted to the repository that has support within DW of qTranslate and it’s forks suspended.
