Hey! It’s me again and I’m gonna teach you how to add a custom HTML widget to your WordPress sidebar/footer, so just relax and Read on.
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 WordPress.com 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.
You can Add a Custom HTML widget to your sidebar or footer by going to your site’s Dashboard then to Appearance >> Widgets
Then you’ll be redirected to the widgets page.
Scroll down and click on the Custom HTML widget, you’ll be revealed a scroll-down menu Choose where you want it to be (it can be sidebar or footer)
After choosing it click on Add Widget then you’ll be given the options to edit it.
Fill in the Title & Content fields and click on the Save button.
So that’s that for Adding a Custom HTML widget to a WordPress site. If you liked the post why don’t you subscribe to our newsletter and share it with your friends.
