What is it?
The Bookmarks widget lets you bring bookmarks to the front and center of a page or space so people accessing the page can be easily connected with helpful and relevant content. These bookmarks can be created by you, your community administrator, or both.
Bookmarks have their own dedicated support document. Please read the article on Bookmarks for more information.

Please read the article entitled Theme for more information on how to alter the appearance of a widget.
At the bottom of the Bookmarks widget edit tool, there are the options to Update and Cancel. Update will save and apply all changes you have made (whether they have been made in the Options, Layout and/or Appearance tab), and then close the window. Cancel will close the Bookmarks widget edit tool without saving and applying any changes that were made.
To remove a Bookmarks widget from your page you can select x on the far right sides of the title bar while in page edit mode. The Bookmarks widget will be removed from the page and all settings that were associated with it will be lost.
