    Hi, I'm very new to WordPress.

    I'd like to know if its possible to use downloaded widgets outside of the sidebar?

    If so, how would you go about this?

    Thanks!

    Technically, no. All widgets have to be placed in a "sidebar". However, there is nothing stopping you from styling and using a "sidebar" in any manner you wish. For example, in the twentyeleven theme, the footer is registered as a "sidebar" so it can receive widgets, but it is clearly styled and used as a footer.
