How to use Website Builder widgets

This article will show you how to insert a widget through your Website Builder tool.

Simply put, a widget is an element that you can insert onto your webpages that can enrich your overall site.

These can range from basic widgets that simply allow you to insert text, images, videos, buttons and social media links, to more elaborate widgets that perform specific functions such as countdown timers, before and after image sliders, contact forms, calendars and more.
