I want to remove a widget from page with id '28'. How can I do it?

I have found function for it, but it is private function, so I can't use it.

"wp set sidebars widgets

This function's access is marked as private."


  • There are plugins for that. Jetpack has widgets visibility feature, and there are resources explaining the issue. Why not research a bit before asking? Jan 28 '15 at 13:58
  • I want to write a plugin for page with id 28. Plugin has 100 lines of code, I hope to do it with 5-6.

function my_theme_sidebars_widgets( $sidebars_widgets ) {

    $sidebars_widgets['sidebar-10'][2] = null;

return $sidebars_widgets;
add_filter( 'sidebars_widgets', 'my_theme_sidebars_widgets' );

ok, I have found a filter for it. I hope this 'null' is fine.


You can try this one below.

add_filter( 'widget_display_callback', 'hide_widget', 50, 3 );

function hide_widget( $instance, $widget, $args ){
    if ( is_page( 28 ) ) {
        return false;
    return $instance;

I hope this will be very helpful.
