Below you’ll find some basic examples how to configure a widget. All examples are using the default configuration (no rules) as a start.

1. Hiding a widget for Category X
Tick the desired Category under the ‘Single Posts’ section and under de ‘Category’ section.

2. Showing a widget only on Page X
Set the default under the ‘Page’ section to No. Tick the desired Page name.

3. Showing a widget only for certain posts
Set default under the ‘Single Posts’ section to No. Tick the ‘Make exception rule available to individual posts and tags.’ Now you can find in the Edit Posts screen at the bottom right corner a ‘Dynamic Widgets’ area, where you can tick if you want to show the widget at that particular post.

4. Showing a widget only to subscribers on the front page
Set default under the ‘Role’ section to No. Tick the desired Roles. (e.g. Subscriber). Set every default except for ‘Date’, ‘Language’ (when using WPML) and ‘Front Page’ to No.

5. Showing a widget when author Y uses a special tag in the post
I’m sorry, this is not possible. Combining authors and individual tags is not supported. The widget can be shown when a certain author writes a post (In the Single Posts section, set default to No, thick the author) or when an author (any author) uses a certain tag (Set default to No, Tick the ‘Make individual…’ checkbox and tick the widget in de Tag Admin Area.).

6. Hiding a widget everywhere
Remove the widget from the sidebar.
