Widgets are set in what we call “Widget Areas”. These are groupings of 1 or more widgets that will get displayed together. These widget areas get set on any individual page.

To have widgets displaying, you must set the page layout to either "Sidebar left" or "Sidebar right". To do this click on the page of your choice, click "Page Settings" and then set either "Sidebar left" or "Sidebar right".

To access widget areas click on "Elements" on the left hand side and then click on "Widget Areas" along the top.
