Screens:

< widget homepage map - help with the map to add the widgets to right positions >


*note: position header is hidden on smaller screens

When you create a widget (or use the existing one), check the map above to select the right positions for a widget.

You can add more widgets to the same position. It works with the XenForo widget system so it should be familiar.

NOTE: you don't have to use all positions. For instance, if you don't choose sidenav and sidebar you can use only the container and column positions. Or any other combination.


This is how it will look on the mobile:

Note that sidenav position on mobile will show like this (after you tap the Navigation button - look in the above screen):
