Widget Overview

What are Widgets?

Widgets are snippets of code that can be re-used throughout your templates and content pages. By placing a widget's "inclusion code" anywhere on a template (Integration > HTML Templates) or a content page (Content > Custom Pages), the program will execute the widget's code and display the resulting output.

Inclusion Code

Inclusion code is the "trigger" that tells the program to run a widget at a specific location on a page or template. Inclusion codes are formatted as follows:

{-widget_id_here-}

By replacing the widget_id_here with the actual widget's ID, the program will replace the inclusion code with the actual output of the widget.

To find a widget's ID, go to "Content > Widgets". Note that all widget IDs are cAsE SenSitIve!

Types of Widgets

The program allows for the following types of widgets:
