Adding a widget to your site

Wondering how to add a widget to your site? It's super easy!

General Instructions

First, you'll need to decide which type of widget you'd like to embed into your site. We have three types, gold, silver, and bronze, based on which we most recommend. Here's a general overview of the differences between the three.

If you decide on the bronze level, you'll simply need to embed an iframe wherever you'd like your widget to appear.

For gold and silver, you'll embed the code in either the head or the body of your page, and you can configure the widget from there.

Squarespace Instructions

Many of our customers use Squarespace, so we've included directions below to help you add your widget to a Squarespace-hosted site:

  1. Go to pages > page content > click the + icon at the top > select code from the available content blocks

  2. Copy + paste the code for your widget and save to see it on your site

  3. You can adjust the height or width of your widget to fit your site! Simply edit the percentages the appear after width= and height= in the widget code.
