To add a widget, click the 'Add A Widget' button under your profile picture to go to the Widget Directory. Pick the category that you want, choose a widget and click the 'Learn More' button. Click the 'Add This Widget' button to start setting it up.
For widgets from other sites, you will go to a page that has directions. The directions will have a link to the other site that you can click, and a new window or tab will open. On the other site, follow the directions that that offer (as well as ours), and when you're done, the other site should give you some HTML code that you can use on CafeMom. The CafeMom directions will tell you which code to take from the other site, and then copy and paste it into the 'Paste Code Here' box that is at the bottom of the directions page on CafeMom. Then you can name your widget, set privacy options, and control which pages you want the widget to appear on!
