What's a widget?

Widgets are small, pre-styled content blocks that perform specific functions. 

WordPress has a number of native widgets that are available on the platform, no matter what theme you are running. However, many themes—ours included!—create special widgets specific to a theme that provide extra functionality, and/or layout options. Widgets can be embedded into any widget-ready area. In our themes, that usually includes sidebars, footers, and interstitials. However, using the WordPress block editor, you can also install some widgets directly into blog post content, and/or page content.
