Depth: Configure Your Widgets

To access the Widget page, go to Appearance → Widgets

On the right, you will see a number of panels that you can expand:

  • Home Page
  • Sidebar
  • Footer Panel 1
  • Footer Panel 2

Each widget area specific to your theme has been color coded to make setup easy. Simply drag the widgets you need into the corresponding panels. At the top of the page you will find a yellow ribbon containing a handy “Click Here” link, which will display the recommended widget setup in case you get lost.

Below is an explanation of each widget and how to configure it.

Featured Posts Panel

Drag the blue (Obox) Featured Posts Widget into this panel. Do not put anything else here or it will probably not format correctly. Expand the widget to access the widget options:

  2. Select whether to display Thumbnails or Videos. If you use oEmbed links for your video posts, thumbnails will be generated automatically if you select the Thumbnail option.
  3. Click Save
