Empty Widget Areas


Many times while developing themes for WordPress I had to empty widget areas after cloning a site/setting up a site. This started to become annoying. Enter Empty Widget Areas.

With just a click of a button you can empty the whole widget area and remove all the widgets, giving you a fresh start to your widget life.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload empty-widget-area to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Widgets and see it happen.


I can’t see the Empty Widget Area-button

The widget area has to contain widgets in order to show. Also try expanding the widget area as the button is located inside the accordion item.

I accidentally deleted my widget area. Can I undo it?

No, sir. The action is non reversible.
