What are Widgets

Widgets are used to place repetitive content in the header, sidebar, footer, advertising spots and other unique areas of your website.

1. Widget Areas (accordian boxes with unique location based titles) are located on the right of your screen. These accordian boxes contain the individual widgets that appear on your website. Read about your specific widget areas below before editing.
