To add a widget to a page, edit the page and click “Insert” > “Widget” where you’d like to place it.
Most widgets will only show content in your group by default (aka, content you’ve created for your part of the Sweet Briar site, or that’s been shared to you by another group).
Here’s the content of my announcement.
News story widgets
Story widgets are classified as “News” widgets when inserting a widget. Here are the four widgets available to all groups:
Stories: One Starred Story, My Group
A large feature that shows one of your stories with a star added. (You can add stars to stories from your Manage Stories page or when editing a story.) By default it will display the most recent story (or the one you “balloon” to the top of your list). If you want to place a specific story on a page, add a tag to it on the backend, then when placing the widget, add the tag in the Customize Widget section, top left.
Note: If your story’s main image has its subject on the right side of the photo, it may be obscured by the caption; add the tag “Photo subject on right” to your story, and the caption will be moved to the left.
Stories: Story list
A list of all your group’s stories, showing 3 at a time with pagination links to show additional stories.
Stories: Top 3 Stories
The same as above, but limited to 3 without pagination.
Stories: 2 items, card layout
Two items in a side by side card layout.
Outside of the main Sweet Briar event calendar, one widget (“Events List”) is used for most cases where events are shown on webpages. To request a widget for a specific event type, contact the Sweet Briar web team.
Faculty profile widgets
A faculty profile listing is included automatically below the side navigation on every academic major page. To include a faculty listing elsewhere, use the Faculty and staff by group widget.
Staff profile widgets
The Staff List widget shows a list of the staff in your group.
You can highlight a course or courses by adding the information to a Courses profile on the backend and star it. Place the widget to show a single starred course in your group. If there are multiple starred courses, this widget displays one at random.

“By the Numbers” (Statistics) Slider
The Statistics Slider Basic Page Width widget displays blurbs of type “Statistics Slider” in your group.
