Widget Layout Item – PageCells Responsive Framework

The Widget Layout Item represents a Dynamic Sidebar that appears in the Widgets admin. Unlike traditional themes, PageCells lets you create and configure as many as you need. Each Widget Layout Item has its own configuration settings that control the way WordPress displays each widget it contains.

Adding Widgets

From the Layout Items panel on the top right of the Theme Options page, drag the Widget Icon over to the Row, Container or Loop Drop Zone where you want it to appear.

Positioning Widgets

Once a Widget is added, you can drag the Widget to change its position on the Theme Options page. Widgets can be dragged across Rows or simply repositioned in the same Row.

Deleting Widgets

Click the red Trash Can Icon on the right side of the Widget to delete it. An alert will appear to confirm that is really what you want to do.

Widget Options

Click the blue Wrench Icon next to the Widget Name to open the Widget Options panel.
