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.

2. Widget Types (boxes with unique function based titles) are located on the left of your screen. These boxes style the content that appears on your website. Read about your specific widget types below before editing.
