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.

Let me show you how this looks within WordPress and don’t freak out if it looks slightly different in your setup-  as I have said, widgets and widget areas vary depending on your theme but the idea remains the same. 

So, let’s set up your first widget together:
