Widgets & Sidebars

Widgets » RSS Links Widget

The RSS Links Widget allows you to add links to your blog’s post and comment RSS feeds in your sidebar. This makes it easy for your readers to stay updated when you post new content or receive new comments. (You can learn more about RSS feeds and how they work here.)

Here’s an example of what the RSS Links Widget looks like:

rss-widget-wordpress

To add the widget to your site:

  1. In your dashboard, click on Appearance → Customize → 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.

The two + icon block inserter buttons are marked with arrows.
