A widget is an element of a graphical user interface (GUI) that displays information which can be changed by the user or store admin. nopCommerce has several built-in widget plugins such as Google Analytics and Nivo Slider etc. When adding a widget to the public store, site administrator needs to define (or select) a widget zone. Now, you must be wondering, what is a widget zone? A widget zone is part of the UI (user-interface) in the public store where the widget can be displayed or rendered. For example, you can place Live Person chat widget on the left column or on the right column widget zone. Widget zones are basically the pre-defined locations in nopCommerce public site that makes it easier for the store admin to display any information.
