Sane Widget Sidebar Management


If you have ever needed to accommodate a client’s request to have separate widget areas for many sections of the site, you understand the need for this plugin.

This plugin alleviates the pain of having many sidebar widget areas by hiding all but one (that is selectable via a dropdown). Gone are the days of trying to drag a new widget from the left column to a widget area at the bottom of the right column (ugh!).

There is no configuration for this plugin.

Contribute on github.


  • New and hawt.
  • Old and busted.
  • Widget area scrolls with you. No more trying to drag outside of the viewing area.


  1. Upload the sane-widget-sidebar-management directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
