Creating Widget

We provide you with options to easily customize the widget templates that we provide or create a widget from scratch as per the search query you populate in the widget.

Create Widget using Templates

Depending on the widget type you choose, populate the information and configure the required settings for the widget.  For detailed information about each widget type, see Widget Types.
