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, including an Instagram feed, Google Maps, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube!

As well as all those excellent social features, Widgets also allow you to add other features to your Create site, such as our Category product slider, Image magnifier and Mouse over Widgets.

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, to your side columns or to your Shop products long description!

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

  1. Click on "Content" 
  2. Click on "Widgets" on the left-hand menu 
  3. Click on the "Add Widgets" link 
  4. Choose the type of Widget you would like to create. 
  5. Customise the Widget to your requirements 
  6. "Save" your changes
Once you have created your new Widget, follow the steps below to add this to your site:
Responsive Page:
  1. Click on the pencil icon next to the page you wish to edit.
  2. On the left hand menu you will see a Content block for your widget, for example the 'Feautured Product Grid'.
  3. If you cannot see a induvidual Content block for your widget, drag and drop the 'Widget' Content block and select it from the drop down.
  4. Save changes.
Static Page:
  1. Open up the editor of the page you wish to add your Widget to.
  2. Place your cursor in the Editor 
  3. Click on the "Widgets" icon (This looks like a small lightning bolt)
  4. Select the Widget you want from the list and select "OK" 

A grey holding box will appear in the Editor and you will need to "Publish To Web" for the changes to take effect on your live site.
