Introduction to Display Widget Installation

The most important part of installing a Display Widget is choosing the right location for your reviews. This guide reviews each of the installation methods available for some of our most popular Display Widgets.

If you are not sure if your store is using a Shopify 2.0 or Vintage Theme, please read Shopify’s help article. Use the jump links above to find the right guide for your store.

Shopify 2.0 Display Widget Installation Guide

a. Installing Display Widgets on an existing page

Go to Online Store - Themes - Customize within your Shopify Dashboard.Widget_Install_1.png


Look for the Product Template where the Widget should be installed. As an example, we’ll install this Widget on the homepage:


Click "Add Section" at the bottom of the left panel of the screen.


In the "Apps" list, choose your Widget. For reference, you can see our Display Widget Showcase article here.Widget_Install_4.png

Installing the Side Drawer, NPS Form Modal and Review Popup

Some widgets are installed using the App Embeds section of the theme editor, including the Side Drawer, NPS Form Modal, and Review Popup widgets. Simply toggle the widgets you'd like to use to the ON position and Save your changes.

Give the page a name and which template its structure is based on. Most commonly you will use "Default Page". Click "Create Template":


Click "Add Section" at the bottom of the left panel of the screen. Then, in the "Apps" list, choose the Widget to be added. In this example, we are using the  "Full Page" Widget:

Click Save on the top right of the screen.

You will need to assign a page if you want the content to be modifiable through the Shopify Pages Editor. For that, go to Online Store - Pages - and click "Add Page":



Add a Title to the Page and text content if needed:


On the right panel of the screen, assign the page to the newly created template:Widget_Install_14.png
