What Is A WordPress Widget For?
You need to know what is a WordPress widget for when you are building your website.
Widgets!! What on earth have they to do with WordPress?!?
Before I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I thought that a widget was something which was found at the bottom of a beer can!!
But what is a WordPress widget?
For along time I had absolutely no idea, I had just heard of them! They were a foreign country to me. I should have learnt what they were through the brilliant trainings at Wealthy Affiliate, but they sounded just too complicated to me, so I put that training on one side.
Big mistake!! They can do so much to improve the appearance and efficient working of your website. So I finally bit the bullet and knuckled down to try to understand them!
In very simple terms, widgets are used to put text and images into the sidebars and the bottom of your site, amongst other things.
