Customizing Home Page widgets on LeapFish

This post is part of a blog series on "Why I like LeapFish". It is also an entry into the LeapFish $100,000 Cash Dash contest, which you can signup for here.

To follow up on my post about the LeapFish home page from yesterday, in this post, I will be discussing the customization features of the LeapFish home page and how you can modify it to fulfill your personal tastes and needs. 

As I mentioned in my last post, you'll need to sign up for a free account on in order to use the customization features. Once you have your account, you can sign in and start modifying your home page to suit your own preferences. 

By default, you see a bunch of news widgets, Twitter and Facebook widgets, and a popular YouTube videos widget. If for some reason you don't like any of the default widgets provides, simply hover your mouse over the top right section of the widget, find the X and click it. This will remove the widget from your personal home page.

If you'd like to add more widgets/content to your LeapFish home page, just click on the Customize Homepage button on the top right of your screen, and you will be taken to a page that shows a variety of widgets from all types of websites and services. If you like a particular widget on that page, you can simply click on the "Add This" button underneath that widget to get it added to your personal home page.

When you are on your own personalized home page looking at all of your widgets, you can also drag and drop the widgets to reorder them. This can be useful if you have a certain widget that you want to see at the very top of your homepage screen. Simply drag it to the top and it will stick.
