Appearance - Widgets

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.

Widgets also power the UMaine 1.0 Alternate Home Page. For information on how to configure your home page with this design, see Using the UMaine 1.0 Alternate Home Page.
