We’ve just looked at types of widgets available in WordPress for small business websites. As I just said the text widget is your workhorse widget. It can be used many ways.

I’m going to take the widget in my column 2 widget area in the footer I’m going to grab this prepared text and just drop the content in there. And say “Contact Us”.

How Adding Paragraphs Affects the Appearance

Now it’s not just text that you can put into this. You can also put javascript in there. For example, I’ve got this little piece of javascript from Linkedin that shows my Linkedin profile. I can just come right in here and paste that javascript. And now there it is and if you hover over it there’s all kinds of stuff like “link off to my Linkedin page”. And that’s because the text widget can take javascript in it.
