Hide Widgets on Mobile plugin is a perfect plugin for your responsive website! With the increase in number of responsive websites using WordPress as a CMS, the general trend is to stack the sidebar below the main content area to display a “one column layout” and hiding certain elements on mobile devices for a cleaner look. This approach is great and works for a majority of websites, yet the only downside of it is that as the column width becomes smaller, the height of the content area grows making the page too long for the widgets in the sidebar below to stay relevant. The plugin lets you hide any active widget from all mobile devices with just one click by adding a check box to each widget settings. The widgets which are selected to be hidden are then not displayed at all on any mobile device, making the page load quicker as well.

Key Features:

  • Best for responsive websites running on WordPress
  • Hide unwanted widgets on mobile devices for better user experience
  • Reduces the page length to keep it manageable for the user
  • Improves performance by not displaying widgets at all (not just hiding via CSS)
  • Compatible with WordPress 3.4+


  • Extract zip in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  • Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  • Open Appearance → Widgets page and start hiding active widgets on mobile devices.

    Two minutes installation, and select-boxes are automatically added to all widgets. Works like a charm. For us a great plugin to limit the number of ads shown in the sidebar on mobile devices in order to limit the length of pages.

    Five stars, easy.
