What are Elementor Widgets?
Elementor widgets are the small programs that display certain kinds of information on a page or post. Elementor is able to do this by implementing a system of containers and widgets to display the content you want to share. When the Elementor plugin is used on a page or post, the 9-dot icon at the top right on the edit with elementor page lists all the widgets available to use inside the Elementor editing space. Typically, a theme template (not the same as our network site templates) that has no sidebars is used with Elementor so that widgets can be placed in any row or column of the content area. With Elementor, sidebars are not used, because widgets can be placed wherever desired.
