Worth it’s weight in gold.

This plugin saves so much effort if you want to create context sensitive menus in sidebars. Brilliant, thank you.

Great plugin and even greater support

This plugin if very useful and easy to use, but most of all the support provided by Joachim is amazing!

Target your sidebars like a laser!

Content Aware Sidebars lets you have laser-like precision to display just the right sidebar wherever you choose. Great job!

One of my favorites!

This plugin is easy to understand and even if you have just a bit of trouble to master it at first, once you get it you will use on every project. It is really that great!

By far this is one of my all time favorite WordPress plugins.

Best Side Bar plugin out there

This is by far the best side bar plugin I have ever used. I have tried many others, but they are either too clunky, not very powerful or too complicated.

This one is easy to use, works on all sorts of post types and very powerful.

Love it. Finally found my sidebar plugin. Thank you!

This is the most essential plugin for my entire site

I absolutely love this plugin. Content aware sidebars, allows me to easily control a list of menus presented to viewers. I’ve organized it in a way to help my viewers understand where they are on the site and easily see other content that is related to their current context.
