  • priority - define the widget priority among other widgets - the lower the number, the higher the widget will be located on the dashboard.
    Note 1: Refer to Tips section point 3 to learn how to define priorities in WHCMS.

1. Plenty of promo codes and promotions that we offer to our clients are shared via the widget only.

It is really worth having it in your WHMCS if you do not want to skip any.

2. If you want to temporairly hide the widget, simply press the configuration icon at the WHMCS Dashboard, find ModuleGarden Widget and unselect it.

3. By default, WHMCS widgets priorities are graded every 10. This means that the first WHMCS widget in line has a priority 10 assigned, the second 20, etc.
If you want to place the ModulesGarden widget on the first position, its priority must be lower than 10. The second position requires proiority number set between 11 and 19, and so on.

Please remember that priorites to set the widget position must be used only if you are using any version of WHMCS previous to WHMCS 7.7. which now supports an easy "Drag&Drop" option.
