How to add Spokal’s Sidebar Widgets to Your Site

You can choose between a simple sign up form and the graphic lead generator. Both can be customized and added to your site’s sidebar.

NOTE: The Spokal Graphic Lead Generator Widget is a two-step sign up form, so you need to create a Popup form that you’re going to use when your visitors click on the widget. You can create and customize your Popup from the Spokal plugin page > CTAs > Popups.

To add the Spokal sidebar widgets:

1. Log in to your WordPress site and go to Appearance > Widgets
2. Choose the Spokal widget you wish to add and select where you want to place it on your site
3. Once it’s added, click on the widget on the right to customize it

With the graphic lead widget, you have one advanced option if you’re using focuses in Spokal. You can choose to show a different image (call to action) on posts that are tagged with a specific focus.

To do that, click on the upload or create with Canva button to add a new image.
