Moving community widgets

After adding widgets to a community, you can move them around to find a layout that suits the needs of the community.

Before you begin

You must be a community owner to move a community widget. You can move any type of widget in a community, except for the Members, Recent Updates, and Status Updates widgets.

About this task

You can customize the layout of the Overview page to suit the needs of your community. For example, if you want to highlight and encourage the use of the community wiki, you might want to move the Wiki widget to a prominent place on the page.

Note: You cannot move the content inside a widget, only the widget itself.


To move a widget, perform the following steps.

  1. Click the widget title bar and drag the widget to a new location on the page.

  2. Release the mouse to dock the widget in the location that you want.
  3. If you want to move the widget only one row, click the Actions icon Actions icon in the title bar of the widget that you want to move, and then click Move Up or Move Down.
