3. Sidebars & Widgets
There are 9 sidebar/widget locations in this theme. You can add widgets to those locations in WP admin → Appearance → Widgets. The names of the locations are pretty much self explanatory:
- Module 4
- Module 6
- Module 8
- Module 11
- Module 12
- Footer Column 1
- Footer Column 2
- Footer Column 3
Like with the navigation menus, adding widgets to sidebars is also general WordPress usage, and if you've used WordPress before you won't have any troubles here. But in case you haven't used it before, here's some resources to help out:
