A Widget is a tool that allows you to perform a function or integrate different services on your Create website without needing any knowledge of HTML Code.
Examples of some of our best widgets include a featured product grid, social sharing icons, Google Maps and an Instagram feed, to name but a few. See the full list >>
All our Widgets are free to use with a Create subscription and can be used anywhere on your site that features an editor. So, for example, you can add them to the Content Pages of your site, or to your Shop product's long description.
Creating and adding Widgets to your web pages is simple, as you’ll find out below:
