Widgets are modular units that are created independently (unlike page elements like the feature box or inline box). A widget can be added to multiple pages.
In the _widgets folder at the top of the asset tree, choose your site folder (or create a new folder). Next:
-Click "New" in the Blue Task Bar
-Choose the type of widget that you want to create.
Attach a widget to a page as a Left Column Widget, a Right Column Widget, or on a Widget Row
