Widgets are small HTML snippets, that will be displayed on your page. It depends on your Layout if you can use widgets or not, the designer can choose to support widgets or not.
Note: Widgets were called Portlets in Bigace v2, but the naming was changed. Many softwares nowadays use the word “Widgets” instead of “Portlets” and we therefor decided to change the wording, so Bigace is more easy to understand for new users.
You can configure used widgets through the “Widget admin”, as seen in this screenshot:
Please note: If your template supports multiple widget columns, you might see element 3 - 6 multiple times
If a page has no widgets, the system will look up through all parent pages to the top-level page if there are widgets configured. The first result will then be used as widgets for the current page.
For example if you have this navigation with explicit configured widgets in (brackets):
Then you will see the following:
