How To Start Blogging Step By Step For Beginners on WordPress
Let us return to articles about widgets
Other times we classified the widgets and we took each one, reaching as those beside: “Default Sidebar”, “Secondary Sidebar”, “First Footer Widget Area”, “Second Footer Widget Area”, “Third Footer Widget Area” and “Fourth Footer Widget Area”.
We’ll just take turns explaining each of them.
“Default Sidebar” might contain: “Blog Stats”, “Text”, “Author Grid”, “Search”, “Archives”, “Pages”, “Music Player”, “Recent Posts”, “Archives”, “Categories”, “Authors”, “Categories”, “Calendar”, “Music Player” and “Meta”.
“Secondary Sidebar” might contain “Blogs I Follow” and every widget you choose for this place in the first section of widgets.
“First Footer Widget Area” might contain “Calendar”, “Text”, “Facebook Like Box” and every widget as “Secondary Sidebar” can, so do “Second Footer Widget Area”, “Third Footer Widget Area” and “Fourth Footer Widget Area” too.
Next time we’ll talk about “Menus”. Hopefully you’ll find this information important to you and see you next time.
Widgets (first part)
Last time we talked about the “Appearance” heading classification and I mentioned the first two sub-categories, namely: “Themes” and “Customize”, as we also review the “Widgets” sub-heading, with its general and special classifications.
So we take each one and explain how to use each sub-section dividing into parts, speaking primarily about the “Available Widgets”.
The first part will include: “About.me Widget”, “Akismet Widget”, “Archives”, “Author Grid”, “Authors”, “BandPage”, “Blogs I Follow”, “Blog Stats”, “Box.net file sharing”, “Calendar”, “Categories”, “Category Cloud”, “Contact Info” and “Custom Menu”.
- In the “About.me Widget” application you will find a fill in form If you have an account on “About.me” and you will find in the following widgets instructions, the special box added to this application, stating that this application will print your profile on the above mentioned website by using icons.
- “Akismet Widget” prints all the number of your blog spams founded by the Akismet plugin and according to the instructions in the box below, we have the widgets position on the right of the widget menu bar; you just have to choose where you want this widget to be placed, or if you want not to display it, you can choose for the “Inactive widgets” heading, from the bottom of the frame below.
- The “Archives” heading prints your articles in this category according to their delimitation on each month of the year. Here you choose a title, select how to display it and where you want the widget to be displayed and saved.
- “Author Grid” shows a grid of author avatar images, even if there are many authors.
- “Authors” displays blogs authors with avatars and recent posts.
- “BandPage” displays your BandPage content.
- “Blogs I follow” displays linked images for the blogs you follow.
- “Blog Stats” shows a hit counter for your blog.
- “Box.net file sharing” shares your Box.net uploads with your visitors directly on your blog.
- “Calendar” is a calendar that shares your site’s latest or newest posts.
- “Categories” is a list or dropdown of categories.
- The “Category Cloud” is a cloud format for your most used categories, being shared on your blog with the help of this widget.
- “Contact Info” displays your location, hours and contact information.
- And the “Custom Menu” is a widget where you can add one of your custom menus as a widget.
After we reached these interesting topics about the first part of the widgets, we will follow next time to maintain this line continuing with just the interesting other parts.
But until next time, I wish you one day as moderate in summer temperature terms and a relaxing and full of news blogging! 🙂
