USING THE WIDGET – Create a Widget or Generate Shortcode

The widget can be used with most drag & drop page builders like page builder and beaver builder, but we recommend using the shortcode instead. Our widget will save you time by generating shortcode for you. Simply open up the widget in the customizer and start choosing your options. When you are satisfied, copy and paste the shortcode into your post or page.
