In order to be able to add widgets to an online store built with 3dcart, you need to add a small piece of code to the code of your store. It needs to be done only once. Then you will be able to create widgets, edit them, turn them on and off from your GetSiteControl dashboard.
Log in to your GetSiteControl account. If you don’t yet have an account, create one, it’s free.
Click Site settings at the top of the page and switch to the Install tab. Here is the code that needs to be added to your website.
Next, log in to your 3dcart account. Open the Settings section in the menu and choose Design.
Find and click the Edit template (HTML) link.
Click to Edit your website template.
Paste the code you copied from your GetSiteControl account right before the closing
<body> tag and click Save to apply the changes.
That’s it! Now you can go back to your GetSiteControl account and start creating widgets for your website. As soon as you activate them, they will appear on the site. No further changes to the code are needed.
