You may want to display ads on your site’s sidebar or footer,or maybe you just want to add a little functionality to your blog (like subscription form, contact form etc).

I know there are a whole bunch of free plugins to do it, but you can also make use of the custom “Custom HTML” widget 😄. Yeah, I know how that sounds but pardon the expression.

The Custom HTML Widget allows you to add HTML code to the sidebar or footer of your site.

Note: Some HTML tags like script , iframe , form, input , and
style are not available on Premium, Personal, or free plans. You need to upgrade to the Business Plan and install a custom plugin or theme to use them.

ALSO NOTE THAT: The font and appearance of the title in widgets varies by theme.

So let’s get back to business.
