Default Widget Context Fix

This seems like it would have come up by now, but I somehow can't find a reference to it on the site so I thought I'd post it as a Tip.

On my site using WP 3.3.1 and the Argentum Theme by WooThemes, I couldn't get the Widget Context plugin to work. Curiously, if I set it to show by URL it would be hidden on every URL, and if I set it to hide by URL it would show on every URL. No level of filtering by URL seemed to work.

The fix is this:

1. Open widget-context.php in your plugins/widget-context/ folder

2. Find the get_current_url() function:

function get_current_url() {
 if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] == '')
 $uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$url = (!empty($_SERVER['HTTPS']))
 ? "http://".$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].$uri
 : "http://".$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].$uri;
if (substr($url, -1) == '/')
 $url = substr($url, 0, -1);
return $url;
3. Replace the function with this updated one:

function get_current_url() {
 $uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
 if (substr($uri, -1) == '/') $uri = substr($uri, 0, -1);
This does remove some flexibility in specifying http or https, but it was not an issue on my site. This tip was found on the support forum and was originally written by jpmorganjr.
