How to add widgets into sidebar

Sidebar/widget areas are empty columns by default so you’ll need to add widgets to them in order to display information.

1. From the WordPress left menu, go to the Appearance > Widgets page.

2. In the Widgets page, drag and drop one of the widgets into one of the sidebars.

3. Configure the widget settings and click on the Save button.


Or assign a widget to the sidebar from the dropdown list:

1. From the WordPress left menu, go to the Appearance > Widgets page.

2. Click on one of the widgets.

3. From the dropdown list click on one of the sidebars. Then click on the Add Widgetbutton so that widget will be added to the selected sidebar.

4. Configure the widget settings and then click on the Save button.
