According to Technopedia, widget is a broad term and it can refer to either any GUI element or a small application that can show information and interact with the user. It can be in the form of button, scroll bar, label, dialog box or check box. It can also be something slightly more sophisticated such as tiny map, search box, visitor counter, clock or unite converter.
If you want to install DiscordIntegrator, you will have to enable Discord widget. So, do you know how to enable Discord widget? To enable Discord widget, the first thing that you have to do is to open Discord. Then, you have to choose your server on the server list. After that, you have to click on the server title above the channel list to see the dropdown with Server Settings. After that, you have to click on the Server Settings option and then look at the sidebar of the Server Settings and you should see a Widget option among Emoji, Integrations, Roles, Audit Log, Moderation and Overview. Click on the Widget option and you should see a screen where you will see Enable Server Widget, Instant Invite Channel, and Server ID.
If the checkbox beside the Enable Server Widget is off which means that the button is on the left, you have to enable the server widget by moving it to right. Then, from the Instant Invite Channel dropdown, you have to choose a channel to make the widget invite people into that channel. It means that when people click on the Connect button on your Discord widget, they will arrive in that channel.
However, if in this option there is no channel set, the Connect button will not appear. So, if you want people to be able to join your server via the widget, you have to make sure that you set this option to a channel. Now, you have to click on the Copy button in the Server ID section to copy your server ID. In the Server ID, you will see a series of numbers. You have to save your server ID somewhere since it will be used for embedding the widget later. If property set up, your server settings should be different. The Enable Server Widget button is on the right with a blue color and there is #lobby in the Instant Invite Channel box.

You are able to get the widget from the widget tab which is available in your server settings. From that tab, you are able to enable the widget, adjust your invite settings, copy the html or json code to embed on your site just as we explained previously.
