About using Waterloo-created widgets

When adding widgets, make sure you map to the widget content located on this page.

  • Start as you would for adding any content box by clicking on Add Box
  • Choose Reuse Existing Box
  • From the drop-down menu labelled Guide, select Waterloo LibGuides for guide authors
  • From the drop-down menu labelled Box, select the content box (widget) you want
  • Edit the Box Name if required
  • Click Save
    • Do not click the option to Copy the widget because then you won't get automatic revisions
  • You are done! You are now mapped to the original widget and any revisions to the original will flow out to your version of the box.
