    • Click "Actions" next to your theme, then "Edit code".

  2. Modify Theme.liquid File:

    • Find the theme.liquid file under the "Layout" section.

  3. Save Changes:

    • Click "Save" to update your theme.

Specific Page Installation:

  1. Follow Steps for Inline Widgets:

    • Instead of pasting the code within the content area, insert the Goodreviews code in a manner that ensures it remains visible as users scroll (e.g., within a fixed position div).

Best Practices:

  • Test on a Backup Theme: Before making changes to your live theme, test on a duplicate to ensure compatibility.

  • Check Mobile Responsiveness: Ensure the widget looks good on mobile devices since a significant portion of traffic is mobile.

  • Update Regularly: Keep your widget and Shopify theme updated to ensure compatibility and security.

With these steps, you should be able to effectively integrate Goodreviews widgets into your Shopify store, enhancing your site's functionality and user engagement.
