Widgets vs Widget Sections

It’s important to understand the difference between a widget and a widget section. Please see the below information to help understand the difference between the two.

    • Widget – A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a unique function. Unisco includes several custom widgets such as the Unisco Course Details, Unisco Course Instructor, Unisco Mailchimp Newsletter and Unisco Social Share. In addition, there are several default widgets that WordPress includes such as Recent Posts or Recent Comments. Widgets will always go inside a widget section.
    • Widget Sections – A Widget Section is a container that holds widgets. Widgets must go inside a widget section to be able to display on the site. Unisco includes 4 pre-made widget sections (Newsletter, Course, Sidebar and Footer). It’s a great way to customize your site.
