Once installed, the Shop the Post plugin integrates directly onto your blog post editor page. You will see it beneath the post editor. Here is what it looks like:
To use, simply type in a title you’d like to use for the widget (i.e., “Shop the Post” or “Get the Look” or “Shop my Picks”). Then, paste in your widget code. While the widget code field can accept shortcodes or HTML code, we’ve used rewardStyle and/or ShopStyle widgets within all of our product demos. The plugin is optimized to work best with these two affiliate platforms.
SETTING A GLOBAL TITLE FOR THE SHOP THE POST WIDGET
You can set a title for the widget so that you don’t have to type in a new one each time. To do this:
- Be sure the Shop the Post plugin is installed.
- Go to Appearance > Customize > Shop the Post
- In the Shop the Post Box Title field, enter the standard title you’d like to use for each widget.
- That’s it! Now, this title will be used on all Shop the Post widgets, unless you override it by typing in a custom title, as described above.
