Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Using widgets, part of Start with a Theme: Twenty Fourteen.
Twenty Fourteen has three different widgetized areas.…One is permanent, it's the one you see here on…the left-hand side in the black area and two are optional.…The first one is called the content area and it…will display here on the right-hand side of your main content.…And the last one will display in the footer, and…allow you to place four widgets side-by-side in the footer.…In addition to adding new content to the…page, the content sidebar also changes the display of…your content and you may want to activate…this widgetized area just because it changes that display.…
