Preparing a widget to be published

The standard process for publishing a widget is to configure the widget and select Publish under Advanced on the widget menu. When you use that process, the publish configuration is completed and the widget is published in one flow.

This is an alternative process where you can complete and test the publish configuration prior to publishing. This is useful for widgets that look and behave differently when published, such as the Notes widget. With the local publish configuration on a page, the widget looks and behaves as if it is published, but the configuration is local to the page.
