The Widget Element is brand new in 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.
How To Use The Widget Element
Step 1. Edit an existing page. Ensure the Fusion Builder is activated, by clicking the ‘Use Fusion Builder’ button on top of the page editor.
Step 2. Choose the Container and Column you wish to add the Widget Element into. Click on Add new Element.
Step 3. Choose Widget from the Elements List.
Step 4. The General Tab is the place to choose the type of widget you want to add. Select you widget from the dropdown box. The widgets you see here will depend on what plugins you have installed and active. When you choose an element, any customizable fields for that widget will appear.
Step 5. Customize the widget as desired. You can also set Element Visibility in this tab, or add a CSS Class or CSS ID to the instance of the element for further customisation with Custom CSS.
Step 6. The next step is to customize the design of the Widget. On the Design Tab, you will find a variety of styling options, from background color, radius, border and alignment options.
Step 7. Click Save when you are finished customizing your Widget. It will appear in the row of the Container you added it to. Preview the page to view, and you can always come back and edit the Widget to fine tune the look and function.
