    I have a blog that will have a section devoted to reviews. It's a one column on the right type of theme. Instead of placing an amaznon bannerlink somewhere in the post area, I want to place it in the upper righthand corner of the sidebar, above the recent posts and everything else. The problem is that I'd need to put a different amazon code on each page that has a review. I can do this for one page with the "Dynamic Widgets" plugin but it doesn't seem to work with multiple products. I took a "text" widget and dragged it into the upper right cornerof the sidebar and put a product's amazon banner link code here. Set this to run on only this page with dynamic widgets. But when you do drag another text widget into the same sidebar, it just wants to control both of them at the same time now... hard to explain. When you set one text widget to display one page only, then add the second text widget, the first text widget will now display both codes on the same page. In other words, dynamic widgets cannot control multipple instances of the same widget within the same area (sidebar, footer, etc).

    So, any other solutions? Using different widgets or any other methods welcomed.

    I use "custom sidebars" widget, you can setup a different sidebar by choosing post type, page, category and a lot of selections, you can also select a specific sidebar in post creation

    I use that on my blogs too. It is a really good plugin for control over widgets.
