What is a Widget?
Many widget providers will offer a quick install to Typepad option.
Other widget providers may provide you with HTML code to add to your blog. Using the Embed Your Own HTML module at Design > Content, you can add the code to your blog's sidebar.
Widgets and Advanced Templates
The quick install option for widgets can not be automatically added to Advanced Templates the way they can with basic template-based designs. However, you can visit the website for the Widget to retrieve the HTML, which can be added directly to the sidebar template or using a Notes TypeList.
Widgets and Mixed Media Layouts
With a Mixed Media Layout, a widget can be added to your blog by copying the widget code into a Notes TypeList. The quick install option for widgets is not available with a Mixed Media Layout.
Deleting a Widget
To delete a widget, go to Design > Content and locate the widget that you wish to delete. Click the red X at the corner of the module. Finally, click Save Changes to update your blog.
