Status Widgets

Embed a graphical Status Widget on to your website to display the status for your users.

Note: This feature is available only for Green status page users.

You can choose from any of the three widget types mentioned below:

  • Basic: This simple widget displays the overall status on your website. Here's what a basic widget will look like,
  • Badge: This widget lets you customize the status label and displays it as a prominent badge on your website.

    Note: The Basic and Badge widgets display the overall status of the components in your status page. If multiple components are facing downtime simultaneously, the one with the highest severity will be updated.

  • Sticky: This is a floating widget and comes with the options to customize the way it is displayed. You can choose a position on your website to "stick" the widget and it will stay in position, even when the site is being scrolled. The sticky widget for maintenance will be shown 24 hours before a maintenance and during an ongoing maintenance. The sticky widget will appear only if there are any Active Incidents, or any upcoming maintenance. It will be hidden if all components in the status page are operational. This widget helps to convey incident information to your site's visitors.
