Once you have selected your widget type and filled in the fields required, then add an image to your widget If your image already contains the text for the button you can leave the text field blank so it is not repeated, if your image does not contain the text you can add this in the text field and it will then be displayed below the image on the widget page, here is an example of a URL widget that will direct participants to the GalaBid website.


Once completed click 'Done' found at the bottom of the pop-up and this will create your widget, you can then move your widgets around by clicking and dragging the hand icon in the corner and make further edits to your widgets by clicking the pencil icon.
