How to add widgets
Flexibility of Edicy can be felt not only by its ease of use. It allows you to integrate a number of external web services with your website. All you need to do is open html edit view from the toolbar and paste code which the online tool or service like (Google Calendar, Google Maps) as well as social plugins (Facebook, Tripadvisor) have provided you.
How to set up Google Analytics account
Remember to set up a properly formed address in your Google Analytics account. If you want to promote your site with an address like "mycompany.com" then you should add "mycompany.com" not "mycompany.edicypages.com" or "mycompany.edicy.co".
How to set up a form for online orders, contacting etc
Form area can be added beside or instead of any content area on your site. Along with text and gallery it's the third content area type. From there on, it's self explaining. You can add rows after rows of different form fields and customize the details by just clicking on each row. If you need, you can also add text blocks in between the fields. Global form settings can be found on the last row with submit button
Oh, and did you know that all form data can be downloaded as a CSV file for the liking of your legacy software like Excel?
How to set up a blog on your website
To add a new blog, add a new page and select its layout type as "Blog & News". Edicy will automatically treat this page as a blog and allow you to add entries and comments to it.
To start blogging, click "Blogs" at the bottom of the page, open "New post" to load a blank page theme and start writing.
Log in to your site and start writing.
