Widget Areas are areas in which you can add widgets. The Denali has a ton of them.
Attention Area Widgets: This is technically not an option, it lets you know what widgets you have enabled in the Attention Grabber for each property type. For every property type you create, an Attention Grabber widget area is created (along with a "Right Sidebar" and a "Below Content" widget area) and every widget it contains will show as a different tab on it. You will see how to set these up later on, in the "Widgets" part of this tutorial.
Property Slideshow: Denali will also create a separate Sidebar widget area for each property type. If you do not add any widgets to that area, Denali will, by default, display a slideshow on it. By checking "Never display a slideshow on property pages" it won't.
In order for a slideshow to be displayed, the images attached to the property must be of a certain size - WordPress will never enlarge your images to avoid pixelation.
Featured Image in Header: As we said many times until now, the Denali will create some special elements for your single property pages (Attention Grabbers, Slideshows etc). If these elements cannot be shown for any reason (usually because they're empty), it will display the property's featured image instead. You gotta have some visuals. In this settings area, you can choose the image size (resolution) for these images, or disable that image completely. Also, as an added styling measure, we have added a checkbox to disable that image only if the image size you selected does not correspond to a property image and there is no slideshow.
These widget areas will appear in all WP-Property - Denali installations.
Tip: You don't have to use all of them, we have already seen how to disable some of these widget areas. For the rest just don't add any widgets.
That makes us a total of 14 (yes, fourteen) widget areas for sites with only one property type. But who deals in one property type only? WP-Property creates four property types by default so that would make us 23 different widget areas for you to play with. Not bad. We dare you to find another real estate theme with a minimum of fourteen widget areas.
Once you go to the Widgets settings page (From the Dashboard, Appearance > Widgets) you will see a VERY long list of widget areas. DO NOT FREAK OUT.
For each property type you have enabled, three widget areas will appear. WP-Property creates three default property types: Building, Floorplan and Single Family Home. You can add new and remove property types that you don't wish to use in your Dashboard under Properties > Settings > Developer. For more information see the WP-Property documentation.
