With widget templates you can change the look of the build-in Sitefinity widgets – Blog posts, News, Events, Generic content, Images, Videos, etc.
You manage widget templates on Widget templates page.
To open the page, in the main menu, click Design » Widget Templates.
If you want to create new widget templates or edit the current templates there are two approaches:
- Using the Sitefinity’s Widget templates editor.
The Widget template editor in Sitefinity is an easy and intuitive way to create or edit widget templates directly in Sitefinity backend. With this approach you do not need to download the files, edit them, and reload them again. All of the properties of the widget are listed in the editor and with ready-to-use syntax.
- Using external file (.ascx)
You can point the widget the path to an external file that contains its template – an .ascx file. We recommend this approach in case of using Code-Behind logic and some very complex scenarios.
