There are some situations where you want to show or hide certain widgets on particular pages such as home page, post pages, static pages, archive pages and even on particular posts.So many people have a question such as “How to show/hide widgets on particular pages“.Because there are some widgets which are meant for the home page and some for static pages or post pages.Show hide widgets in blogger

Let us take an example of AdSense widget. A normal AdSense publisher is allowed to show a maximum of 3 ads(display ads) on each page if you show more than that it may lead to a ban. Also, we are not allowed show AdSense ads inside contact us, privacy policy page. So I’m here to explain to you how to do it. so let’s start to jump into the topic.Follow the steps below.

Step 1:
Go to Blogger Dashboard>Layout and find a widget which you want to show or hide.After finding just give it a unique name which doesn’t match any other widget name and click on save. Generally, we add custom widgets using HTML/CSS widget and use with a particular name to it.
Step 2:
Now click on Template>Edit HTML and check the expand widget in the template or HTML editor.
Step 3:
Next, click ctrl+f and enter the name which you have given in step 1.Let us consider the widget name as Popular posts and click Enter until you find the code which is similar to below code.

<b:widget id= 'HTML11' locked='false' title='Popular posts' type='HTML'>
  <b:includable id='main'>
          Widget code
  </b:includable>
</b:widget>

Here Green highlighted name is the Title of the widget which we are finding and the Red highlighted code is the widget code ( a bunch of code for the widget) which is different for different widgets. In the above code id, title and type are also different for different widgets.Don’t bother about widget code because we are not going to change it. 🙂
Step 4:
Now we need to show or hide widget on particular pages.We have to just use a conditional statement to do this job as shown below.


<b:widget id= 'HTML11' locked='false' title='Popular posts' type='HTML'>
  <b:includable id='main'>
    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "Page_type"'>
      Widget code
    </b:if>
  </b:includable>
</b:widget>

The above code is just a sample code with a conditional statement which is highlighted by Orange color.
Step 4:
Now i will give you the exact way(code) to show or hide widgets on different pages.

  2. Hi there – thanks for this – i am trying to put this code on a static page homepage for my blog. I followed your instructions and am getting no error. The problem is that the slider widget has disappeared on the blog page, but will not appear on my static page that i am trying to make my home page.

    Is it possible that this is because I have a custom domain?
