    I just LOVE this add-on and how many options it gives the Adminstrator. You can literally place anything, anywhere in just a couple of clicks.

    The forethought in insuring that the other Supported Add-ons can be easily positioned within the sidebar is a very nice touch.

    Very good extention. Easy to install, configure and use. I can not understand how such a necessary function is not include in the core version. Big thanks to the developer!

    It works, although I do wish that it had compatibility with Brogan's CTA Featured Threads addon for those that use the page in that addon as their home page.

    Andy is one of the most prolific and generous xenforo addon coder I've ever seen. My forum use a lot of his addon. They're all working very wel and absolutely useful adding a lot of function that should be in xenforo core. Sidebar Position is absolutely a must!

    This add-on is awesome. And, so is Andy! Andy goes to all lengths to help me. I appreciate it very much. I have ditched Widget Framework and will be using Andy's add-ons instead.

    Perfect! Thanks Andy for another great addition to your great collection of xf add-ons.

    Can I also point out that Andy's support is excellent, he's a guy that cares about your forum with great respect!

    Great developer, generous with his time and especially with his very clean, fantastic code. This addon, like others, are an effort in the shortest distance between two points. And what I like most about it and other plugins by AndyB is that they are constantly updated and they flat out just work. Great job.

    First of all, I just want to be honest and say that I am reviewing this addon for the 2nd time. I deleted my first review that I initially rated it, 2 stars. The reason was because it was a complete error on my part and had nothing to do with this addon.

    I received a message from AndyB who was absolutely amazing with helping me straighten it all out. He never once made me feel like I was taking up his time and only made me feel as though he wasn't going to leave until it was right and I was satisfied.

    This addon is without question - a must have! Now that I understand it all, everyone should add this on, today!! The creator is without question, second to none!

    Thanks again, AndyB! :D

    I love the idea of being able to change the order of every block without having to search for help nor edit code.
    It also allows to change the order of other Andy's add-ons blocks.
