    The advantage of widget logic (for developers) is that you can write custom boolean functions and then call them from widget logic. I’ve accomplished some pretty nifty things with this approach.

    @Josh – the downside is that there’s no security consideration in Widget Logic–it simply runs eval() on whatever is entered in the conditional field for the widget. Widget Visibility may be more limited for advanced developers, but it doesn’t provide a ready opportunity for arbitrary code execution.

    Kaspars Dambis (author of Widget Context) gave an excellent presentation about the WordPress widget system at WordCamp Norway.

    I’ve been using the free WooSidebars plugin from WooThemes to accomplish some similar things. http://www.woothemes.com/woosidebars/

    WOW, nice to see this feature – one year ago I had to implement Widget Rules to achieve the similiar functionality: http://www.gavick.com/wordpress-features.html#wpf-widget I hope that they implement additional subpages types like search, 404, taxonomy etc. :)

    which is better in terms of usage and performance widget logic or widget context? I don’t use jetpack so I’m choosing between the two.
