A widget is a snippet of code that makes it possible to display a wide range of content and
place it at specific block references in your store. Many widgets display real-time, dynamic data
and create opportunities for your customers to interact with your store. The Widget tool makes
it easy to place existing content such as static blocks with images and text, and interactive
elements most anywhere in your store.
You can use widgets to create landing pages for marketing campaigns, display promotional
content at specific locations throughout the store. Widgets can also be used to add interactive
elements and action blocks for external review systems, video chats, voting, and subscription
forms, or to provide navigation elements for tag clouds and image sliders. Topics in this
