Widgets: Energise your website!

Every Standard website has the capacity to include a wide variety of widgets to help you spice up the look and feel of your site. A widget is basically an element on your website that will take information from your site (or others) and display it for users in a format that is easy to view and access.

Widgets are particularly handy as they give you the ability to keep relevant and engaging content on your website without having to update it every single day. A good example of this would be the YouTube widget. If you have a YouTube channel and are uploading videos to it, your widget will update automatically and display the most up-to-date videos on website so you don't have to 'double handle' any website content to keep it fresh and relevant.

Below is a list and description of the popular widgets used as well as all of the other widgets that are available on a Standard website.

Click on any of the widget names to find out more about how to configure them and how they will display.
