How to use

Use a shortcode to display your widget anywhere on your website

Start in the editor

To get started, click on the Widgetkit button in your CMS edit view. Now choose the widget you would like to render, for example Grid. To create content for your widget, hit the New button and select the content type, for example media.

Explore the Interface

To create your content, you can add single content items by using Add Item. Alternatively you can use Add Media to select multiple items at once through the media library or manager of your CMS. Don’t forget to hit Save after you have created your items and then Close.

Using the shortcodes

To finalize your widget, hit Insert. Now you will see a shortcode with the ID and settings of your widget. If you have changed the default settings of your widget, the updated settings will be added to the shortcode. To select a different widget, click inside the shortcode and hit the Widgetkit button. Now click Change Widget.
