How to add explanatory text within widgets?

    In v3, by default, there was some text within each widget, explaining to the client (eg.) why they had to Register or (eg.) how the KnowledgeBase could help them.
    In v3 we found this text very helpful (and customised it).

    In v4, by default, there appears to be no such text.

    Is there a way of adding it (and customising it) with the Admin CP?

    If not, can anyone help me with:
    --which line, in which template, to look at?
    --how to customise that line to show text as in v3?

    I am not sure if you can add text to a widget directly, but you could add a widget button section on your homeindex template with instructions for each.

    <div class="widgetrowitem defaultwidget" onClick="javascript: window.location.href='http://helpdesk.ourwebsite.com/Base/UserRegistration/Register';" style="background-image: url(http://www.ourwebsite.com/images/register.gif);">
    <a href="http://helpdesk.ourwebsite.com/Base/UserRegistration/Register">
    <span class="widgetitemtitle">Register</span></a>

    Thanks for that. I was hoping to be able to just add text within the widget, in a smaller font, to explain to first-time visitors what to do.

    Really, I just want to be able to do what we could do so easily in version 3.
