This article will show you how to determine which type of widget contains specific content on a page.

Content that is contained within a Content Widget can be edited on the page by turning on Live Edit and selecting the widget.

Content that is contained within a Module Widget (excluding the RSS Widget) is edited by selecting the appropriate module in the Modules menu and navigating to the correct Category and Item. The display of the items within these widgets may be affected by Widget Options or may require Design updates.

Legacy Editors experience functionality issues in Internet Explorer and Edge and should be replaced with Editors or Custom HTML widget, or removed altogether.
