How & where to place widgets on your website?
In this important step, we will show you where and how to place widgets. You can place widgets either through the WordPress customizer Appearance => Customize => Widgets or in your WordPress dashboard if you go to Appearance => Widgets. Widgets can be placed simply via drag and drop, so just pull your favored widget to the widget area you like.
Please notice: In case you can not see any widgets on your front page after having placed them, it is very likely you have not set a static front page correctly and probably haven’t defined the Homepagetemplate for your static front page as required.
