How do I add Widgets to my website?

A Widget is a tool that allows you to perform a function or access different services. We offer a great selection of Widgets that allow you to access lots of different features.

Widgets can be used anywhere on your Create site that features an editor, so, for example, you can add widgets to the main body of your site, or to your Shop products long description!

To add a Widget to your website, please follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to your Create account
  2. Click on "Content" 
  3. Click on "Widgets" on the left-hand menu 
  4. Click on the "Add Widgets" link 
  5. Choose the type of Widget you would like to create. 
  6. Customise the Widget to your requirements 
  7. "Save" your changes
Once you have created your new Widget, follow the steps below to add this to your site:
  1. Log into your Create account
  2. Click Content on the top menu
  3. Click Edit This Page (the pencil icon) next to the page you would like to edit
  4. Click the Add Block button in the bottom left-hand corner
  5. From the drop-down menu, select Custom

6. You can then drag and drop the Custom Element content block onto the desired place on the page.

Once the Custom Element block has been added to the page, you can click the + icon and use the drop-down menu to select what content you would like to add to the page.

 

You’ll see you can select content including Widgets, HTML Fragments and Custom Forms, as well as combinations of other blocks such as Buttons, Headers, Images, Videos, Maps and Text.

A placeholder icon will be added to the page and if you click the Settings icon, you can specify exactly which widget or HTML fragment for example, that you would like to use. Click Done and then save your changes.
