We make sure that beginners get a solid understanding of what WordPress widgets are, Understanding WordPress Widgets, and the types that are available, Types of WordPress Widgets. Then we cover plugin basics with Understanding WordPress Plugins and Installing WordPress Plugins.
Once the basics are covered we show how to add both widgets and plugins to your site. We show how to add responsive video to your site, Add a Responsive Video Using a Widget, and how to add a contact form to your site, Add a Contact Form Using Contact Form 7 plugin.
Finally, you will learn how to change the display of widgets on your pages using the Widgets Display plugin. This plugin allows you to both control the pages on which widgets will display
and it will allow you to choose who can see the widget which can be useful in advertising.
