Hide Visible Widget for Future Use

If you have a widget on a page or post using Page Builder that you don't want to display but also don't want to delete, you can hide it. To do so, go to the widget's Edit screen and click on Attributes. Then, add the following line of code to the widget's CSS Styles:

display: none;

You can't do this for widgets in Appearance > Widgets since they do not have an option to enter custom CSS.

Widgets & Sidebars

WordPress widgets add content and features to your sidebars. Examples are the default widgets that come with WordPress for post categories, tag clouds, navigation, search, etc. Plugins will often add their own widgets.

Sidebars

You can create a sidebar by going to Appearance > Manage Sidebars. Under Add New Sidebar, type a name for your sidebar and click 'Add'.

Once a sidebar has been created, add widgets to it by going to Appearance > Widgets. You will see available widgets on the left side of the page and sidebars on the right. Simply drag and drop a widget onto the sidebar in which you want it to appear. Note that the Default sidebar automatically appears with Archives, Search Results, and when viewing single posts.

To get a sidebar you've created to appear on a specific page, go to edit the page. On the right side there will be a box titled 'Page Settings', under which you can choose to display one of your sidebars. There is also a checkbox to apply this same sidebar to all child pages. If you want to apply the same sidebar to an entire section of a site, this option will be useful.
