Adding widgets

If you have a Redback Graphics installed CMS website.
Firstly, what is a Widget? A Widget allows you to add, arrange, and remove tools, plugins or content from the sidebars and/or footers of your website. Widgets make it easy to customize the content of your website sidebars and footers. Typically used for Categories and Posts from a Blog, they can also be used for traditional website content including images, advertisements and News items.

This is to add a Widget Area to your sidebars or footer areas. Not all  websites have both sidebars and footer widget areas, but by adding a Widget you will quickly find out what areas you have available for Widgets.

Login to your Dashboard, under “Dashboard”, click once on “Appearance”, then once on “Widgets”.

On the far right side of your screen you will see all of your available Widget areas. Expand any Widget Area and drag and drop one of the “Available Widgets” into that Widget Area (ie “Right-1” will be the far Right Sidebar). Adding a Text Widget is one of the most useful Widgets to install. You can edit its Title, and insert any text or html. Click “Save”, then view your website to see your new Widget in action.

If you want in insert images into your Text Widget area, see Inserting Images into Sidebars to get the html for any image you want to insert.

Tip 1
It’s always handy to have another browser window open to view the “public” side of your website to see the changes without having to log in and out of your Dashboard to see the public website.

Tip 2
Always backup your website before doing any updates until you are very familiar with updating pages and images etc.

Community Announcement

We did NOT vote for one world government. The fact is "Politicians" work for a corporation, NOT The Will of the People, as they are supposed to under our Constitution.

Where is the Governor General? MIA over citizenship chaos and abuse of our Constitution. The Governor General is SUPPOSED to be looking out for The People to ensure all laws created by the "government" are in the best interests of The People, and in accordance with the Constitution. The Parliament has abused the Constitution, yet the Governor General is MIA - why? Because he has no power under the corporation. Australia is run by a corporation, of which the Governor General is useless to The People who are supposed to be protected by our Constitution.
For more information, please research the Lima Declaration and the unlawful changing of the Constitution by the Whitlam government in 1973, or visit Facebook groups #UNexit,
