Widgets

Besides the standard WordPress widgets, the Vlog theme provides several additional custom made widgets. Widgets that are added to this theme by the Vlog Buddy plugin have a Vlog prefix and widgets added by our plugins have a Meks prefix. Our special widgets are displayed in “blue” color in admin panel so you can easily notice them.

To manage widgets, go to Appearance -> Widgets as shown in the image below.

Added by the Opinion Buddy plugin:

  • Vlog Posts – similar to the standard WordPress post widget but with an attractive design and more options provided.
  • Vlog Categories – similar to standard WordPress category widget, but you can explicitly choose which categories to display as well as specify their ordering.
  • Vlog Series (Playlists) – the same as for categories, this is a widget to display your series.
  • Vlog  Adsense – if you are using Google Adsense, you can put your ad-sense script inside this widget. Actually, not only Google Adsense, you can put any JavaScript related advertising service here.

Please note that you need to install the Vlog Buddy plugin to enable additional features, such as custom widgets.
