  2. Click on the desired sidebar to expand (so you can add the widgets)
  3. Drag and drop the individual widgets from the Available Widgets or Inactive Widgets menus to the appropriate sidebar
  4. The widget automatically opens for you to configure. Configure as required.
  5. Click Save and then Close.
