Widgets power the sidebars on your website. They allow you to add useful information to the areas under the right-hand navigation, as seen here (under “Sample Sidebar Item”):
The Widgets management area is a drag-and-drop interface. You’ll drag the widget of your choice from the menu on the left into one of the sidebar areas on the right:
There are two sidebars to choose from in the standard template: “Sidebar” and “Home.”
You’ll notice there are many widgets to choose from. Most include a brief explanation of their function under the widget title, and many have settings that will pop up when you’ve dragged them into place. You can re-order the widgets in the sidebar or move widgets between sidebars by dragging and dropping them to the desired location.
