Is it possible to toggle on/off a widgets visibility?

Asked on January 11, 2016 in How To.


Is it possible to turn off the visibility of a widget with content contained within it? Similar to how a photoshop layer works? Or must it be deleted completely?

Any help Hugely Appreciated.

    I recommend a plugin like Dynamic Widgets for this – it allows you to enable or disable widget visibility under a huge number of conditions. There is nothing that will allow you to show or hide the widget inline in the building process though. What I typically do in those cases is duplicate the page, then edit the copy with my alternate layout etc. This allows me to keep a “master”page of all the widgets with various configurations, then duplicate them easily so I only need to delete the ones I dont want in the new iteration.

    Thank you Vail Joy, I had not thought of your duplicate page approach it will be of great help.
    I will also give the Dynamic Widgets plugin a try. Thanks once again for our help.
