What is a Widget in WordPress?

Widget is such a function, with the help of which we can implement any feature at a particular place in our website. This not only improves the look of the blog, it also benefits the visitors coming to our website. It depends on us what feature we are implementing. It would also have an advantage, those who do not have much knowledge of coding, they can also add a few functions to their blog with the help of Widget.

The new blogger does not have much knowledge of coding, so they find it difficult to edit the  theme. Keeping this in mind, the feature of Widget has been added to the blog so that the new function can be added without disturbing the website's coding.

Most of the Blogger themes have the feature of adding Widget in both Sidebar and Footer. With its help, you can add Search box, About us, Contact Form, Popular Post, Advertisement, Social Media Icons and many more functions.

Widgets are the main part of any blog or app. Widgets are structures having some information and functionality rendering something. 
Let say, we need to share some text in our sidebar of Wordpress blog. We can simply include text widget, and write content to embed in sidebar, or somewhere widgets be embeddable.

Editing website is not always easy, and most of the time, not all are devs, so widgets are pieces of blocks, helping you embed any thing without actually modifying the theme/page of a website.

A widget in WordPress is a tiny component that serves a specific purpose.  It may only be put in a designated area known as the widget area. A WordPress theme can have numerous widget sections in which the user can install various widgets. 

WordPress comes with a dozen distinct types of widgets preinstalled, and you can add, rearrange, and delete them from the widget areas by using  Appearance -> Widgets on the administration panel.
