The content tab contains the basic controls of any widget. You can change the default layout using these options one by one.
Switcher Selection and Add Items
Go to Style > Switcher
First, you can select the Switcher Style from the several styles available at the top option. Here, we have selected the first style.
Right below, the Content Switcher items are listed as Primary, Secondary, and Others. You can change their title and rearrange positions or add more items anytime you want.
Clicking on an item box, you can customize the Switcher Item. First, set the Title for the Item. You can select Content Type ( Content or Saved Template). If you work with a template you can select the Saved Template and then choose any template.
With Content selected for the type, you can customize the content with the given options. You can add Icon along with the Title. Just set the Icon and keep the item active by enabling the Active switcher.
By following the previous way, you can set the secondary content or another switcher item.
