TIP: 

When you use widgets and stack them together and create a heading for each of them, use only ONE heading- the first one is retained- so the widget title doesn't duplicate multiple times.

So, if you need pictures to show within a section, add the pictures (photo grid widget) below the 'section' header widget and copy paste the name from the section header widget' to the widget header for the photo grid. Then it will keep just one name and not create a section. 

More instructions on how to adjust widget titles can be found in the PDF attached to this article. 

Why won't my widgets save?

  • Depending on which browser you are using, this can affect how widgets save on your Editor. If you are using Internet Explorer 9, we recommend switching browsers to Chrome or Firefox.
