Introducing Lightweight Sidebar Manager in Astra

Introducing Lightweight Sidebar Manager

Normally you have a sidebar that appears throughout the website. However, sometimes it is necessary to display a relevant, different sidebar on certain pages on the website. For an example: on WooCommerce pages, a sidebar with related or top seller products would be more relevant than latest comments, blog posts right?

We just released a free plugin to help you solve that problem. It works with any theme, is very simple to use and most importantly it’s very lightweight.

Please check it out here.

    It is not working !!
    I have tried using it on category page, but it is displaying main sidebat

    1. Make sure you have set the target rules correctly, If a page/archive has two different sidebars selected from target rules, the first one will be displayed.

      Can you open up a support ticket with more details?

  2. Hello,
    Very useful Plugin!
    I have a question:
    Is it possible to have a double side bar ? Left and Right custom side bars…
    Do you have a code or a workaround to achieve that?
    Thank you

      1. Is it possible for collapse in the side bar?
        The more product I love in the more categories/sub-categories/sub-sub-ect.-categories it generates. As to where my side bar out grows my page in length.

          Hello Tym,

          Unfortunately, no we do not have such a feature to collapse the sidebar.

          There might be some other plugin which can help achieve this requirement.

    1. Yes, that is easily possible. We offer a meta box on all pages where you can enable or disable sidebar for specific page.

      1. So if I want to ONLY have a sidebar on my blog page…your plug-in allows that?
        If so…do you have screenshots or a printout explaining this process

  3. Is there a way a user can switch ‘modes’ that also switch the sidebar in use? Rather than linking to different sections of the site, I would like to just change the sidebar for different audiences.

    1. Can you explain your requirement with an example so that it will be helpful to answer your question? Particularly I could not understand what do you mean by “different audience” and “mode” that you are referring to.
