Can I place widgets inside post or page content or are can they only be inserted into sidebars etc?

To learn more about the shortcodes see this Help article.

Can site visitors interact with the items displayed within the widget or is it only visual?

They can interact with them. Clicking on an item within the widget will direct the site user to the download category.

Is it possible to customize how the Widgets appear?

Yes. Both when widgets are added to sidebars through Appearance → Widgets or when they’re added through the included shortcodes, the content and appearance of the widgets is highly customizable.

To learn more about customizing the widgets see this Help article.

My site has far too many download categories to display in a widget. Will the add-on handle the display of my glossary terms in a way that makes sense?

Yes. There are a few different options on how this can be achieved. The quickest is to simply limit the number of categories that are displayed in the widget.

Alternatively you can choose to display based on tags. With this in mind you can use a more limited number of tags for your downloads and use them to display downloads within the widgets.
