Step 1: Copy/Paste Styles And Save Widgets
Why This Step Is Important
Learning how to copy and paste styles and use global widgets will allow you to more quickly use your preferred settings for each widget. This means that you won’t have to restyle a widget each time you add it to a page. We created a special template, LP-SETTINGS-widgets, with our recommended styles and settings for each widget to make this process much easier.
