How to install widgets on Shopify

In order to be able to publish widgets on your website you need to link the site to your GetSiteControl account. This will allow you to create and edit widgets in the dashboard with the results being applied in real time. To connect your site you need to add a small piece of code into the code of the page. You will need to do this only once.

Here are the steps to install GetSiteControl on a Shopify website:

Step 1

Login to your GetSiteControl dashboard, click Site settings at the top of the page and switch to the Install tab. You will see a piece of code that needs to be added to the code of your Shopify store. Copy the code.

Click 'Site settings' at the top of the page and switch to the Install tab

Step 2

Login to your account on, go to Online Store and click Themes in the menu on the left. Then click the Customize theme button.

Click the blue Customize theme button

Step 3

Click Theme options in the top menu and choose the Edit HTML / CSS option from the drop-down menu.


Step 4

You will see a list of files and folders. The file you need to edit is called theme.liquid and is located in the Layout folder. Scroll to the very end of this file and paste the code you have copied from GetSiteControl right before the closing </body> tag. Click Save to save the changes.

Paste GetSiteControl script right before the closing </body> tag

And that’s all. You can now go back to your GetSiteControl dashboard and create widgets that will be displayed on your Shopify site.
