Widgets can be added to many areas within your theme, but you (and your users) may not need access to all the widgets provided by WordPress, your theme and other plugins.

This plugin provides simple admin controls that can remove any core WordPress widget, along with all (well coded) additional third-party widgets. Great for simplifying a cluttered widget screen, or if you limit user access to a smaller number of core widgets.

This plugin can remove the following core WordPress widgets:

  • Pages widget
  • Calendar widget
  • Archives widget
  • Meta widget
  • Search widget
  • Text widget
  • Categories widget
  • Recent Posts widget
  • Recent Comments widget
  • RSS Entries widget
  • Tag Cloud widget
  • Custom Menu widget
