06 Jul What’s widget in Magento?
Magento Widgets are Magento extensions with a predefined set of configuration options. Through them the store administrators can enrich the front-end blocks functionality. They provide great control and flexibility in creating informational and marketing content through the Magento administrator panel. Once installed, the widgets options can be tuned by the Magento store administrators.
The Magento widgets can be used after Magento version 1.4 and they can be installed in the same way as the other Magento extensions.
