A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a specific function.

Widgets are created to provide a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress theme to the user.

The Conj - eCommerce WordPress Theme includes ten widget regions by default.

Conj - eCommerce WordPress Theme widget regions

Widgets added to this region will appear in archive (blog) and shop pages.

A full-width widgetized region which will display any widget added to this region above the footer widget area.

All footer widget regions are arranged into equal width columns dependent on how many regions are active.

As an example if you have widgets in the Footer Row 1 - Column 1 region and widgets in the Footer Row 1 - Column 2 region, they are organized in two equal-width columns while column 3 and 4 won’t display in that row.
