  • Hi knightmoves,

    A widget is anything you can put on your homepage or your profile page. So you could have a widget that shows your journal posts, or your friends, or the groups you belong to.

    If you want to add a widget to your page, click the "Add A Widget" button that is underneath your profile picture on your homepage.

    You'll be brought to the "Widget Directory". Pick the category and choose the one you want and click the "Learn More" button. Click the "Add this widget" button if you are ready to start setting it up.

    For widgets that are from other sites, you will now go to a page that has directions about how to set the widget up.

    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!
