If you have seen WordPress blogs on the web, then you know that often there is a ‘sidebar’ area where the ‘posts’ are categorized and a menu is displayed to the visitor so that they can read additional ‘posts’. Typically sidebars are used for adding important functionality to more than one page. Some sidebars can display horizontally – this is often used for ‘breadcrumbs’ for example. Sidebars are configured with separate functional parts, called ‘widgets’. You can add any number of widgets to a sidebar. Widgets are powerful tools and provide the functionality for sub-menus, breadcrumbs, featured pages, popular posts, calendars, login prompts, maps, images, contact info, YouTube channel galleries, social icons with followers, subscribers, and likes counts, etc. Please note however, some premium widgets do come with some extra cost.
