How to find a WordPress widget easily?

Widgets are a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress Theme. Widgets' sidebars available in a WordPress theme are related to the design and layout of your site.

They can be found on the Appearance » Widgets page in your WordPress dashboard area.

It may happen that you have no idea where to find the widget on the front page.

For this purpose, you should use the PE Theme Elements Info plugin and get info about sidebars and widgets types. 

Let's see how it works.

The plugin you can find and download for free here: https://www.pixelemu.com/wordpress-plugins/pe-theme-elements-info

After downloading the plugin, it is required to install it at your WordPress website backend. Log-in to your admin panel, go to “Plugins” and choose “Add new”.

 It may happen that you have no idea where to find the widget on the front page.

Use the “Upload Plugin” button and choose the file from your disk.

Use the “Upload Plugin” button and choose the file from your disk.

After the successful upload and installation, use the “Activate plugin” button.

The plugin is now enabled and should be visible on the list of installed plugins. Later, when the work is done, you can stop using the plugin, by clicking the “deactivate” button.

Now go to your WordPress website front page, refresh it and you will see the result there.

As you can check on the screenshot below, there is a small box with the Sidebar name and a type. So, it’s placed in the Header Sidebar and the widget type is Text.

Let’s take a look at another example. As we scroll down the front-page there are two infoboxes for two widgets:

  • The first one is placed at the Top2 position (sidebar) and the type is “Media Image”
  • The second one is placed at the Top2 position (sidebar) too and the type is “PE Best Features”

The first one is placed at the Top2 position and the type is “Media Image” - wordpress

That is all. This way, you can check each widget location and find it easily in Appearance » Widgets in WordPress backend.
