  • you can only add things that cafemom has widgets for in the widget directory. has to come from the site they have too, if they don't have a widget for the site and thing you are wanting to add, you can't add it.

  • Hi hunters_mom820,

    To add a widget to your homepage, click the 'Add A Widget' button underneath your profile picture.

    You'll get to the 'Widget Directory'. Pick the category and choose the one you want. Click the 'Learn More' button. Click the 'Add This Widget' button if you're ready to start setting it up.

    For widgets that are from other sites, you'll go to a page that has a link to the other site and a new browser window or tab will open up.

    On the other site, follow the directions that they offer and when you're done, the other site should give you HTML code that to use on CafeMom. Once you've copied the correct part of the code, just paste it into the 'Paste Code Here' box at the bottom of the directions page on CafeMom.

    Then you can just name your widget, set privacy options, and control which pages you want the widget to appear on, and it's all set up!
