In Q2A 1.8, there is option to allow widgets to be allowed per page- including custom created ones. But, if some pages are created via plugins, can we add widgets to them? I mean is there any easy way other than doing the widget code manually in the page? - Like registering the page name - so that it is considered as a custom page or so. Currently "make this widget available on all pages" works. I'm looking for something more specific like making widgets specific to certain pages.

Yes, you should see the page as any other page, at the bottom of the list.

The usual layer-8 error is forgetting to actually add the pages in the admin/pages section before trying to enable the widget. 

Thank you pupi. I'm not seeing this for some- for example the blog plugin has blogs page - but this is not getting listed for me. I suppose this might be due to its link being added to the navbar in the plugin code itself and not in the "Pages" section of admin bar. Am I guessing correct?
I don't know anything about that plugin. However, if you don't see the page in the admin/pages section then it is not a real Q2A page module: http://docs.question2answer.org/plugins/modules-page . In general there is no reason to avoid the plugin modules but there might be exceptions
Thank you. I'll check further and come back. Surely they are page modules - registered as "page". But I'll confirm what exactly is happening.

Since it may be not equipped in the Q2A core, this is just mere reference (Hint for development). Below may be what you are looking for.

Thank you. I'll check that :)
