Widget Element

24/08/2020

The Widget Element was released with Avada 6.2, and offers you the ability to add a single widget directly into your page content, and edit it live on the page. Whereas the Widget Area Element adds a pre-populated Widget Area into your content, this Element allows you to add a single widget directly into your content and populate and configure it through the Element.
