SOHO Website Widgets

A 'widget' is simply a self contained function that acts a bit like a mini web page that you place within your main website pages. There are several widget formats to choose from and these are created within your account in your Widget Gallery. A single widget may be used as many times as you require on multiple pages in your website.

The Home page of this website has two widgets; one for the mobile phone website and the other for the Search Engine tutorial.

 

Examples on this page...

  • Navigation widget - A 'multiple links' widget that can be used to link to other pages on the same website (as in this case) or pages on external websites
  • Dot's Diner - An Image + Text widget with a link to an external website
  • VW Darth Vader Advert - A Youtube widget using the Third Party Code option with the Youtube code pasted into the widget
  • Cafe Open Sign - A simple image that has been placed in an Image + Text widget with all the formatting options removed (no heading, text, borders or link)

Please see the other sections on the types of widgets for more examples by selecting from the multiple-links options or selecting from the menu/navigation bar.


Positioning

Widgets can be placed in three areas on a web page (depending on the design layout style selected); on the right side, on the left side and across the bottom of the page below any text and other content that you have on the page. The widgets are arranged vertically (stacked) on the right and left sides of a web page and horizontally across the bottom of the page. The horizontal widgets are wider than the vertical widgets, making them more suitable for when a slightly larger image or text area is required.

 

Styling

There is a number of ways in which you can style a widget, such as turning the border options off (useful for widgets that have images with a white backround). The styling options are explained in the tutorials.

 

Inserting

To place a widget in a web page you need to click on the Pages tab in your account and select the widget button for the page where you wish to place the widget. You will see the three options for adding the widget to the left, right and bottom of the web page.

To sequence your widgets in a particular order simply add them in the sequence required. You can include as many widgets as needed for each web page.

 

Updating

When you update a widget in the Widget Gallery then the changes will be replicated to all instances of the widget wherever it exists in the web pages on your website.
