A widget is an extension that has an interface that users can interact with via the site.

In xSiteable widgets usually appear as boxes of varying sizes, with a title bar.

Creating a page for widgets

Widgets can only be placed on dynamic pages. So, to use widgets, you need to create a dynamic page.

Deploying a widget

To deploy (or drop) a widget onto a dynamic page, do this:

  1. Expand the widget manager on the orange admin bar.
    1. You need the right access permission to do this.
  2. Click on a widget, and drag it onto the page.
  3. Release. The widget is now placed on the page.

Depending on how the widget works, you may need to refresh the page before it displays correctly.
