You will need to do two things to prepare this widget so that it looks similar to the one in the demo.
First, you will need to create the RokSprocket Widget. You can do this by navigating to Administration -> RokSprocket Admin and creating a new Headlines widget.
You can find out more about RokSprocket and how to set up and modify widgets by visiting our RokSprocket documentation.
We also went with the Simple content provider in order to create custom items that aren't referenced from a specific post. To create these items, we gave each one a custom link and Description. Below is an example of a description used in this instance.

You can set the RokSprocket filters to include any category, specific posts, or otherwise you would like to have featured in this widget.
Once you have created this widget, you can add it via the Widgets menu by clicking RokSprocket and dragging it to the appropriate section. When you have done this, you will need to complete the following.
