A â€świdgetâ€ť is a WordPress term for a small module of content that appears on your site.
Each widget can be dragged and dropped into a widget area using the WordPress widget interface (found by clicking on WidgetsÂ under the AppearanceÂ tab). Â You can have as many instances of each widget as you want.
Each widget has its own settings â€“â€“ once you drag and drop a widget into a widget area, it will open up so that you can see its settings. Â After changing the settings, make sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the widget.
The appearance of the widgets on your site is controlled by the Widget StylesÂ section on the Theme OptionsÂ page.
