Text Widget Creation

Last updated on 03 November, 2022

When you create a text widget, you can enter plain text directly into a text editor, and use the settings to apply paragraph styling, or add text using HTML. You can also add images.

Requirements for Creating a Text Widget

  • The HTML needs to be valid for the widget to render the content, and this includes a string. 
  • Images must be in https and have a LogicMonitor endpoint.
