Widgets: An Overview

There are certain areas on pages — usually within the sidebars — that can be customized by adding widgets. Widgets are a great way to add content, features, and certain functionalities to a website without using code.

A lot of our themes also have spaces towards the bottom of the home pages for widgets.

Here is an example of some widgets on our Fremont theme’s home page:

Each of Placester’s themes has its own set of default widgets that you can choose from. You can check out which widgets are available by going to WordPress >> Appearance >> Widgets.

Here, you’ll see all of the available widgets in the main section of the page, and the different areas that can accomodate widgets in the right column.
