Widgets and Widget Areas are now considered Legacy methods. See the Legacy Features documentation for more info.
Not to be confused with the Widget Element, the Widget Area Element allows you to display a premade widget area anywhere in your content.
A Widget Area is set up by going to the Appearance > Widgets > Add New Widget Area section of your sites WordPress Dashboard. Once a Widget Area is created, you then assign your choice of widgets to the Widget Area, and these widgets will then be displayed wherever decided within the website.
Widget Area Element = A predefined section that displays a collection of widgets.
Before using this element, you need to set up your widget areas. See the links at the bottom of this document for help with that. Once you have your widget areas ready, it’s time to add the element, To start, simply add the element to your desired column.
Select the widget area you’d like to display from the ‘Widget Area Name’ dropdown box. There are also a few other options you can configure.
Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element in the Options > Avada Builder Elements > Widget Area Element section. Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
