Widgets may be used for a variety of features on a website. These include a rotating image carousel on a home page or static, linked images throughout your site.
To edit a widget, got to Appearance > Widgets in WordPress navigation menu.
Active widgets are arranged into categories, which are displayed on the right-hand side of the Widgets section in the WordPress backend.
To add a new widget, drag the widget from the ‘Available Widgets’ section to the relevant category. The most common type of widget is an image widget and is what your site will most likely use.
You can change the image to appear in the widget, the text to be displayed in the widget and to where the widget will link. In the link field you can enter another page on the site to link to or, if the button is to link to an offer, the specific offer link in the booking engine. Carousel widgets may also be linked to a pdf…just add the pdf to the Media Library and link the widget to the File URL.
Note: Images in image widgets will need to be a specific size as large images may take time to load or may look stretched when re-scaled automatically. Make sure to check the correct size of image required for your site.
Existing widgets can be edited by clicking on them and editing their content. Just remember to click the Save button when you are finished.
If you want to remove a widget but save its settings for future use, instead of deleting it you can drag it to the ‘Inactive Widgets’ field. This will remove the widget from your live site but will keep it saved for use in the future, thus saving you from having to build it from the start all over again.
