We've had some questions asked about widgets, and frankly, your lovely admins had not actually delved into them much. So. We have been practicing in order to write up this handy dandy blog for you.
Pages/Groups can have widgets, profiles can't. To get to the menu, click "Actions" on the page/group wall, scroll to Manage. That will open the settings section. At the very end, you'll see "Widgets". Click it, then select "Create a New Widget".
You'll get a pop up window.
Title-What you want it to be called behind the scenes, so you'll know when looking at the Widget section what each one is.
Is it a block-
No- This will be shown in the left hand menu, like the FAQ and Tutorial sections here on the Helpdesk.
Yes- This will be shown in the right hand menu. The Welcome box with all the current Helpdesk blogs on the right is a widget that is a block.
If "NO" for block, these will show up.
Menu Title- What you want the actual title to be. Generally, if you do the Title and the Menu title the same, it's probably easier.
URL Title- Give your widget a title, so it has it's own URL for the site. Example- Title/Menu Title- User Tutorial. URL- tutorial
Icon- A teeny tiny picture to go in your menu section. Again, you can see an example on the left hand side of the Helpdesk, with the FAQ and Tutorial section.
If "YES" for a block, you will see a text input box. Anything you input there will be set on the right side of the page. You can use HTML links as well. Below is an image of one, as typing it out would cause it to just try to form a link here.
Please note----Page FOUNDERS will see all widgets on a page in the settings for the page. Page ADMINS will only see widgets they personally have created in the settings for the page.
Examples are here-

Below is an image of the emoticons currently on the site, as well as their symbols. The chat has different ones, but it has its own little box to show them, which you can get to from the chat box. These emoticons are for the messages system and the site itself to be used in posts and comments.
