Customization - Adding Widgets

To add widgets to widgetized areas (eg. sidebar and footer widgets):

  • Go to Appearance > Widgets from your WordPress Admin Dashboard
  • If you see on the screenshot above, The big panel on the left side shows all available widgets (the red section) and the small panels on the right are the widgetized areas (the green section).
  • To add a widget: drag and drop the widget from the left panel to the right panel.
  • To remove the widget: drag the widget back to the left panel (Available Widgets panel). If you want to keep the widget setting for future use, drag it to the Inactive Widgets instead of the Available Widgets panel. It will save your widget settings. To retrieve the widget, drag the widget from the Inactive Widgets panel instead of the Available Widgets panel.

TIPS: You can also add widgets in Appearance > Customize panel.
