In order to be able to publish widgets on your website you need to add a small piece of code (script) to the code of the website. You will only need to do it once. This will allow you to create and edit widgets in the dashboard - the changes you make will be applied in real time, without any changes to the code.

Here are the steps to add GetSiteControl script to a website built with Volusion:

Step 1

Log in to your GetSiteControl dashboard, click the Site settings link 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 website.
