The next tab is the Style. Here you can edit the topography of your widget. Choose the background color and text color. Also, edit the header. If you are satisfied with the customization you are ready to add it to your pages and posts. 

For this, first, you need to create a new page. On your Dashboard go to Pages > Add New. On the Top-Left of the editor page, there is a Plus icon.
