How do i fix the widgets on my wordpress site?

I got this question a couple days ago, and although I was able to walk the person through the steps over Twitter (not the easiest way to teach WordPress FYI) I thought it might be a good idea to answer this question really quickly in a video.

widgets can be confusing in the beginning

If you’re not quite sure what to do with them, no worries. I didn’t have any idea what a widget was when I started blogging.

Once you get it though, they’re pretty simple.

just make it pretty!

The Twitter-er was having trouble getting her WordPress blog’s footer to look pretty, and I figured out that the problem came from not knowing how to edit the widget area of her WordPress site.

So for those newbie’s who need a quick lesson in editing your WordPress widgets, I’ve recorded a video to help you overcome this barrier.

I rely on you guys asking me questions if I don’t cover everything you need so please feel free to do so 😀

Comments and shares are always very appreciated,

  • Hi Hannah,
    I really like your posts / videos 🙂
    What are the widgets / plugins what you would recommend to add by default to a blog page?
    Thanks

      Hi Agnes,
      Thanks so much, I’m glad you like them!
      I put together a post of 5 of my favorite plugins earlier here: http://www.techyourblog.com/these-5-wordpress-plugins-make-blogging-a-breeze/ but those are kind of just my favorite/fun ones, not necessarily ones you really NEED by default.
      Off the top of my head I think I’d include “Easy MailChimp Forms” if you use MailChimp for e-mail lists, or any widget that will allow you to place a sign-up form at the end of each post. I also really like one called “Contextual Related Posts” which puts links to related posts on your site at the bottom of each post, and “WPFront Scroll Top” which lets you add a small arrow button in the corner (like I have here) so people can just click that to get back to the top of the post.
      You’ve definitely given me an idea for a new post so thank you! I’ll think about it and put together a list of some more that are just generally rad for each page and post it.
