The Conductor Widget is the heart of the Conductor plugin. You tell the widget what content you want to display and how you want it to look when it’s on a page. Conductor stores this information in a widget, which means you can change the order, display, and location of your content on the fly!

You can add Conductor widgets from within your traditional WordPress dashboard or from the live front end Customizer of your website.
