How To Add Widgets To Widget Areas

Before you can add widgets to custom widget areas, you must first create the custom widget areas. To learn how to create widget areas, please see our Creating Widget Areas article here. Once that's done, you can then assign widgets. Each widget has their own options, which you can customize once you assign them to a widget area.

Step 1 - Navigate to the Appearance > Widgets tab to access the list of widgets and widget areas. The left hand side shows all the widgets you can use. The right hand side shows all the different widget areas you can add widgets to.

Step 2 - Simply drag and drop the widget you'd like to add into your chosen widget area on the right hand side.

Step 3 - To rearrange widgets in a widget area, just drag and drop the widgets into the order you'd like.

Step 4 - When finished, make sure to click the 'Save' button in the widget editing box to save your changes.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Once you've created widget areas and added widgets to them, you can then assign them to different areas of your site. Please see our Assigning Widget Areas article.
