There are two main widgets sidebars that you are able to see in the template. The first one is the right sidebar, while the second one is located on the footer. Next to Latest Media, you can see there are no widgets at the moment because it simply collapses, but you will be able to see another widget area soon.
So let’s start by adding the Orizon widgets that we need for the right sidebar first
Go in the Admin Panel, navigate into Appearance and then click Widgets. On the right corner, you will be able to see the two existing sidebars – the Right Sidebar and Footer. The only thing that you should know about the widgets is that all of them are fully styled, so you can add the one that you want and they will look good.
However, there’s one exception with the Search. Because it is already integrated in our theme, it may cause problems. For example, if you want to add another one, although to be honest I can’t think of a good reason why you would want two search bars.
So I suggest you get rid of it. This is pretty easy to do… One of the ways is to click on the expansion arrow and then hit Delete. The second option is to simply drag it back into the main container and it will simply disappear.
Working with the Footer Widget
As you can see there are a lot of widgets that you can use, for example, the Twitter widget and Popular Post. But the one that I want to talk about is the Footer widget.
At the moment, I suggest you only have one widget in this section, because we’ve got Latest Media in the theme and it is basically a gallery. If you add more than one widget, the footer might be too long and it will not look very good. So it is better if you just add one.
In order for you to see how it works, we are going to add the Twitter widget to the footer. So put a name in the User section, 5 for how many tweets you want to show and Latest tweets for the title. Underneath you have three options, all of them work but I suggest you choose Show no image, click on Include replies below and then hit save.
After the loading icon finishes, go to the template and refresh the page. To see if it worked, go to the bottom of the page and you will be able to see the Latest Tweets right next to Latest Media.
You can add all the tweets that you want on the right sidebar as well. So have fun with it and meet you next time!
