Adding and Managing Widgets in your Wiki

A widget is a mini-application that can sit in your wiki.  Each widget will allow the user to view additional information or push information from the wiki to different places.

Ensure that you are in the relevant wiki

Click on Settings and then Widgets

You will then be presented with two tabs – one for the widgets that are currently in use, and the other displaying the available widgets.

Click on the widget you wish to edit.  Any options available will show on the right hand side.  (These vary from widget to widget)

Make any changes and click on Save.  When you have completed all your changes, click on Finish.

Deleting Widgets
Click on the In Use tab

Click on the widget you wish to remove.  The options will appear on the right hand side.
Click on the Delete link in the top right hand corner

A confirmation box appears.  Click on Delete
