How to set up WordPress Widgets on your Blog?

A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a specific function. Widgets in WordPress allow you to add content and features in the widgetized areas of your theme such as the sidebar.

 

These widget-ready areas can be in the:

  • header
  • footer
  • sidebar
  • below content
  • and basically, any other area which is allowed by your theme.

The available widget areas that you have will vary from theme to theme.

 

WordPress Widget examples are:

  • categories
  • tag cloud
  • navigation menu
  • calendar
  • search
  • recent posts etc.
