Sidebar Content and Widgets

Wondering how you can add a widget to your site’s sidebar or how to delete an item on your sidebar? The video and steps found on this page will help guide you through editing the sidebar to include and remove information for your company.

How to Edit the Sidebar of Your Site

Step 1: Go To Your Site’s Dashboard

You can access your dashboard on the main account page by clicking the arrow at the far right of your site’s menu.

Step 2: Click Design on the Left Menu

Step 3: Click Widgets to Access the Sidebar

Please note, if your home page does not have a sidebar on it, you’ll want to remain in the widget section and click a link on the site’s preview on the right, such as the “Sell Your House” or “Our Company” link. Once you are in the widget section and viewing a site with the sidebar, you will see this listed above your Footer Left and Footer Right option.

Step 4: Click the Sidebar

Step 5: Remove / Add a Widget

You can remove a widget by clicking the title to open the widget and scrolling to find the red “remove” link on the bottom left (see below). To add a Widget, you’ll click the gray box to do so and choose from the list of options opened. These options include: call to action box, custom html, facebook like box, forms, gallery images, rss feeds, videos, twitter timelines, and more.

Step 6: Click “Publish” on the Top Left

and you’re done!
