Design Your Site, Widgets

Widgets » Calendar Widget

The Calendar Widget is a simple, easy-to-use widget that displays links to your posts by date.

💡

Themes that support the Site Editor do not use widgets, so you won’t see Appearance → Widgets in your dashboard. Instead, you can edit all of your site in one place at Appearance → Editor. Click here to learn how to use the Site Editor.

Please note that this widget does not create a calendar of events or anything similar. If you are interested in adding an event calendar, check out our Google Calendar integration.

Here’s what the Calendar Widget looks like when activated on a blog sidebar:

To add the widget to your site:

  1. In your dashboard, click on Appearance → Widgets.
  2. Choose the location where you’d like to place the widget on your site. Common options here include the Footer and Sidebar, but this may be different depending on your theme.
  3. Click either of the + block inserter buttons (see right) to see a list of all the available blocks and widgets.
  4. Scroll down to the Widgets section and click on the widget once to add it to your site.

For general information on working with widgets, see this guide.
