WordPress Widgets And How To Use Them…
WordPress widgets make it super easy to add extra features to your website.
They are simple to use and can add great functionality…
WordPress widgets in the sidebar
Most websites these days have two columns. The main column holds all the content, pictures, video etc…
While the smaller column (sidebar) usually has some sort of newsletter signup (opt-in) form, or maybe some sort of picture ad or promotional thing.
The sidebar is where WordPress widgets come in great use. It is easy to add these little things called widgets to the sidebar of your site to accomplish just about anything you need.
If its a blog, the sidebar is a great place to show your most popular posts and maybe even a social media feed.
It really depends on what type of site you are building.
Widgets in the footer?
Depending on your theme, you might just have the capability to add widgets in the footer of your site too.
This is mostly used for an altenate menu… Maybe another opt-in form for a free report… Whatever you feel like putting down there.
Just don’t overdue it!
The last thing you want to do is confuse the heck out of someone that just landed on your site.
