Getting to Know your Sidebars & Widgets
Every Digital PTO theme features a portion of the page that never changes, no matter what page you are on. This is called a Sidebar and it is a great location for things you want your visitors to see and access from anywhere on your site. We add content to your sidebar for you when you sign up for Digital PTO, but you may want to make changes to it, add to it, etc.
Most themes contain one sidebar, but some of our more advanced themes (like the Graphene 2.0 theme) can have multiple sidebars that display information in a variety of locations.

Explore and Play with the Widgets
Many WIDGETS are available with Every Theme, but some Premium Themes and Premium Plug In’s add additional widgets to your list and offer even more functionality. Play around with your widgets. Add them, test them, and remove them if you don’t like them. Widgets won’t break your website and they are easy to remove. See what you can do and what will work best for your Parent Groups needs. Have no fear, they are easy to add and remove!
Note about Switching Themes & Widgets
Each Theme handles Widgets and Sidebars a little differently. Be sure to check your Side Bar and Widget settings each time you select a new theme as things may move around. Checking your sidebars and widgets should be a step you take every time you change to a new theme.
