How do I configure or edit a widget?

Configuring or editing a widget is done directly on your site!  If you have permissions to do so, you can configure and edit widgets on the main page of the site, without having to go to the Admin menu.

  1. Go to the main page of your site (
  2. Log in at the top right.
  3. Click the 'Widgets' link at the top right.
At this point, you have entered Widget mode, which lets you modify all the widgets on your site.  Beneath each widget will be a 'Config' button and an 'X' button - some will have an 'Edit' button as well.

The 'Config' button lets you change the basic values in that widget - for a Ventrilo Server Status widget, for example, clicking the 'Config' button lets you enter your Ventrilo server hostname and port to display it on the guild site.

The 'X' button removes the widget from the site altogether, but you can re-add it easily by clicking one of the Green 'Add Widget' buttons that have appeared on the site.

The 'Edit' button only appears for certain widgets (most notably the HTML widget), but will allow you to edit the content of the widget directly.  This differs from the 'Config' option in that you are not entering a specific value like a server hostname or port, but are entering content to display in the widget.
