This plugin solves an annoying BuddyPress issue – BuddyPress widgets being displayed on all sites which should really only be available for the root blog and accessible to site admin.
Add this plugin if you want to be able to select widgets that will be shown on all blogs and restrict others to be shown only on the main blog.
Benefits of BuddyPress Hide Widgets:
- More precise control over widgetized areas, beyond what WPMU offers
- Enables the main blog to be the “community hub”
- Frees non-main blog widgetized areas for other user-selected content
Other plugin options for managing widgets:
1. Custom Content Dashboard Widget - Easily add a widget full of custom content to user dashboards, great for help and support… or sales messages!
2. Dashboard Widget Order - Easily customize the order of widgets on all of your users dashboards… giving more prominence to the widgets *you* want them to see and use.
3. Recent Global Posts Comments Widget - Display all the latest comments from across your entire WordPress MU site – using a simple but powerful widget!
