The Make

Widgets let you add little chunks of content or functionality to your site (usually in the sidebar or footer, like the Twitter feed in the right-hand column of this page). Think of them as a bit like apps on your phone. Widgets can provide information like calendars, links to recent comments, menus, etc. They can also provide functional elements like search bars.

Directions

To get started, browse through the available widgets. (Dashboard/Appearance/Widgets) Add Search, Recent Comments, and Recent Posts to the sidebar. Refresh your site and see how it looks. You can add additional widgets to the footer.

For guidance on how to setup widgets visit the video tutorial section in your site’s dashboard: Click on the managing widgets link to learn more.

Let us know when you have your widgets set up by tweeting a link to your site with the #vcuole and #makeWidget hashtags.
