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 Sidebar 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!
