How to Create a Widget to Showcase Your Testimonials

To effectively display testimonials on your website or landing page, Shapo provides a user-friendly widget creation feature. Follow this step-by-step guide to create a new widget that beautifully showcases your testimonials:

Step 1: Access Your Workspace

Navigate to your workspace, which is typically accessible through the top menu or your dashboard.

Step 2: Create a New Widget

On the Widgets page, click the "New Widget" button.

Provide a name for your new widget. This name will help you identify it later.

After naming your widget, you'll be directed to the widget editing and configuration page.

Step 3: Configure Your Widget

Left Side Panel

On the left side panel of the widget editing page, you'll discover three sections to customize your testimonial showcase:

1. Layout Section

In the "Layout" section, you can select the widget style that best suits your needs. Shapo offers two primary styles for now: "Grid" and "Carousel."

2. Design Options

In the "Design" section, you can tailor the look and feel of the widget. Each style (grid or carousel) comes with its own unique design settings. These settings may include:

- Modifying text colors
- Adjusting the background
- Showing or hiding the profile image of the author
- Displaying or hiding the rating
- And more

Adjust the design settings to match your website's branding and aesthetics.

3. Settings Section

In the "Settings" section, you can control various parameters related to the selected widget style. These settings enable you to fine-tune the widget's behavior and appearance. Common settings include:

- Hiding or displaying Shapo branding
- Determining the number of testimonials to show on the widget
- And other relevant options

Customize the settings according to your specific requirements.

Step 4: Save Your Widget

After configuring the layout, design, and settings, make sure to save your widget. Look for a "Save" button, at the top right.

Step 5: Embed Your Widget

Once your widget is saved, you will be able to click the "Embed" button to see the JS snippet. You can paste the provided code into your webpage's HTML at the desired location for the widget.

By following these steps, you can effortlessly create and customize a widget using Shapo to elegantly showcase your testimonials, boosting your website's credibility and enhancing user engagement.
