Widgets – What are they and what are they for?

Widgets are small tools that help you display special content on your website, but they can only be added to special “widgetized zones”. These zones can be found:

  • Home Page [sample] – on by default, but can be customized: see Home Page Layouts for more information
  • Page Sidebars (left and right) [sample] – optional
  • Post Sidebar (right) [sample] – on by default
  • Footer [sample] – optional


Widget Collection

We have over 15 different Widgets, each performing a unique function.

Examples of widgets include:

GA few Widgets can be set to show on one specific page

If you would like a contact us form on one particular page, create a Gravity Form.  The Gravity Form can be set to show only on one page.

Another good widget to use to show only on one page is the Insert Page Content widget.
