Creating Product Widgets

Product Widgets allow you to create HTML code snippets so that you can add your products to other sites like Wordpress or Weebly.

Applies to Version(s): 3.8.0 R1 - Current

Turning on Widgets.

Note: There are two completely different concepts of widgets in PinnacleCart. One is Cart Designer Widgets. These are the boxes that you can add to the left and right columns. In this article we're talking about Product Widgets, which are snippets of HTML code you can add to other websites (like Wordpress sites), so that your products can display there.

Widgets are enabled under Apps. To enable Widgets, click Apps on the left column.

Click App Center on the top right corner if you're not there already.

Scroll to the bottom of the Apps list and click on Widgets.

Click Enable at the top right corner.

Creating a Widget for Products.

Now, you will need to edit a product to create a widget for it.

Click Products on the left column.

Select the product you're looking to create the widget for. On the Edit Product screen, click the Widgets button at the top right.

In the dialog box that appears, you will be presented with three options. These will affect the HTML that gets generated.

Product URL Type: You can choose between Products Page Link and Add Product to Cart link. The former will just create a link to the product page of the product on your store, while the latter will take you to the product AND add it to the cart.

Product Image: You have three options; Product Page Image, which is the full size product image, Thumbnail, which shows the smaller version of your image, and No Image, which is no image.

Widget Style: You have three different styles to choose from. Play with these to decide which one best fits you.

Click Generate after you've select those options.

A new dialog box will show up which displays the HTML you need to add to your site. You will just highlight it, copy it and paste it where you want it to go.
