Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring widgets, part of WordPress DIY: Showcasing Photography.
- The next step in our customization process…is to look at the different widgets…we can add to our new theme.…You've already seen that on pages and posts,…we have widgets in the right hand sidebar.…And I told you that this theme allows us…to customize the widgetized areas in different ways.…For my particular purpose,…I actually don't want widgets in my sidebar at all,…but this is entirely up to you.…My personal preference is to remove…all widgets from all sidebars…because I think it's a distraction,…but if you use widgets right,…they can be extremely helpful in driving people…towards the content you want.…
So, before I do anything else,…I'm gonna remove all of my widgets from the sidebar.…And I'm gonna do that by going to the customizer.…So I'll go to Toolbar and Customize.…From here I'm gonna navigate down to Widgets,…and open the Sidebar Widgets,…and then I'm gonna open each of these widgets…and just click on Remove.…What you'll notice is, when I remove…all the widgets from the Sidebar,…all my content shifts over to stay…
