In my post, I show you how to customize Widgets on the Astra WordPress theme step by step.
Astra is a light and fast WordPress theme. It is highly customizable and is one of the most downloaded WordPress themes.
Let us begin.
Customize Widgets On Astra
Select the Widgets tab from the customizer menu.
No Widget Area
You get this message when you edit a page with no widget areas.
Navigate to a page that does have widget areas.
My sample post has a widget area in the sidebar.
Click on the tab to edit.
Once open, I can see the widgets in the sidebar.
Click on a widget to edit.
I changed the title on this widget in my example.
The live preview shows you your edits.
Delete A Widget
To delete a widget, click the three dots and select Remove.
Add A Widget
Click the plus icon to add a widget.
Select a widget from the list.
The new widget appears at the bottom.
I recommend creating a Group Widget. A Group Widget keeps your items together.
I want to add a recent post widget to my sidebar.
First, create a group.
In the new Group Widget, create a new block.
I want to create a title, so I need a Heading block.
I type my heading and hit enter.
To show my latest posts, I need a Latest Posts block.
Now you can see my latest posts.
The live preview shows my new widget. The title and posts are kept together in the group.
Make your edits and position the widget. I want this widget to be at the top.
Use the arrows to move position.
Once you complete your edits, publish your changes.
I can see the new widget when I go to my website.
