At their simplest components ​are ideal for small strings ​of text that are part of a theme file that the website owner may want to edit down the road. Examples are taglines, quotes, or sidebar items. ​But also: 
 + 
 +  * Components can be used to edit and insert whole blocks of formatted html content into a sidebar, a footer or a multi-column layout. 
 +  * Components can contain code so they can be used to insert dynamic content like a gallery, a list of blog posts, an image slider or a contact form. 
 +  * Components can be included in all pages or individual pages or only in specific pages by conditional statements in the template. See [[components-depending-on-the_page|Components Depending On The Page]]. 
 +  * Components can be used to alter items in the head section of a page, for example to add css or a robots.txt 
 +  * Components can be used inside other components 
 +  * Components can be saved empty, with no content
  
 To create a component, log into your administrator panel and goto **Theme -> Edit Components**. From there, it is pretty self explanatory on how to add or edit existing components. To create a component, log into your administrator panel and goto **Theme -> Edit Components**.
