Widgets are a way to make your website a lot more interesting. Whether you want a clock, a counter on an RSS feed from another site on your page you can be pretty sure that someone somewhere has already built it and you don't need to start inventing a bicycle. But did you know you can use widgets with Edicy as well? Here's how.
First you need to find the widget that you want on your page. Or more precisely. you need the code that you can embed into your page. The code is something looking like this: 

When you've selected the widget that you want on your page copy the code and go to your page. Then click the HTML icon on the little toolbar on your page (it's the icon on the bottom right).

Then just paste the code into the text where you want it and voilla, the widget will appear on your page.

Another option to get the widget on the page is to click on the video icon and paste the widget code into the window there. In addition to displaying videos from Youtube or Vimeo the video function can also display widgets.

So now you know how to get widgets into the text area on your page. In the next part of the series we'll show you how to embed them to other areas on your page as well.

Three good places to find widgets: 

Google gadgets: This is a directory of gadgets you can add to your IGoogle page, but also on other pages anywhere. Currently there are 108673 widgets there so you can be pretty sure that you'll find something you need.

Widgetbox A large selection of very different widgets, the most popular of which is the good old Super Mario game that could be played from your homepage.

Google web elements Google recently developed their own widgets for adding your favorite Google applications like Calendar, News or conversations to your page. (note that the Google custom search element won't work with Edicy, for getting a search box on your site you have to enable it from site full view - elements tab).

Before we go, we'll leave you with a couple of wonderful widgets:
