There are three options for setting the display position: Manual, Merge, Replace.

Target Widget

If you select Merge or Replace in the Action, it is the setting for which widget area to perform the action.

Target widget: Home page
Position: After
Then, this widget area will be displayed after the home page widget area.

Example 2

Target Widget: Sidebar
Then this widget area will be displayed instead of the sidebar widget area.
