How do I create a Widget?

Wavebid has a great tool for listing an auction calendar on your website– our Widget creator. This auction calendar automatically updates whenever you add changes to your catalog! To post the Widget calendar on your website:

1. Start at the dashboard and find your auction. Then go to Marketing–> Widget. 

2. From the Widget page, click on the category of auctions you would like to display: Upcoming, Active, Completed, or Archived. Then click Update, and the sample on the right should reflect the category you chose. Auctions must be set to "public" in order to show up in this menu.

3. On the left, play with the text and background colors or leave them blank if you want your website’s default style. Clicking on More Info in the Widget will show individual lots.

4. When you are happy with the look of your auction calendar, simply copy and paste the Widget Script html on the left into your web page.

Congratulations– you’ve just added an awesome, up-to-date auction calendar to your website!
