Again and again the (justified) question arises: "What is the difference between Exposer and the WidgetsBox"? In this article I would like to show you the differences and also explain why both exist and why both have their right to exist.

In the future, more interesting widgets will follow for the WidgetsBox that will go a step further and open up new possibilities. Exposer will of course also be further developed but with a view to expand the existing layouts & features. In general you can say: Exposer is cheaper, more flexible but also more demanding concerning your know how - You can get the maximum out of Exposer by your own customziations. WidgetsBox is for the masses - you just want to add a widget to your site and don't need the full dynamic integration - then WidgetsBox is the right tool for you.
