Creating widget shortcodes for Boutiques
The Boutiques plugin is designed to work with LTK Boutique and LTK widget tools (usually output as WordPress shortcode) and/or ShopStyle Collective Product widgets or Collection widgets (usually output as HTML) code.
Not sure where these widgets should be pasted? Check out our article on setting up the Boutiques plugin.
To create your shopping widgets
If you are already a member of either platform, widget shortcode or HTML can be built using the following steps:
From your LTK Creator dashboard, navigate to Tools > Boutique. Build a widget with your preferred products. Be sure to select WordPress as your platform.
If using the Featured Retailers template, we recommend a max widget width of 900px. For the Featured Instashop template, size your boutique widget at 680px.
From your dashboard, click on Product Widget, and begin building your widget. ShopStyle widgets can be customized in terms of overall width, how many columns, whether they are sliders, etc. Please review ShopStyle's Help article on how to create Product Widgets.
If you need further assistance with building a widget on either of these platforms, please contact your account representative for more assistance. Unfortunately, EmPress cannot offer support on building or optimizing widgets.
To create Instagram/Looks widgets
Instagram or ShopStyle Looks can be added to the Featured Instashop template in Boutiques. If you are already a member of either platform, widget shortcode or HTML can be built using the following steps:
Our Featured Instashop template pairs great with an LTK widget.
From your LTK Creator dashboard, navigate to Tools > LTK Widget. Build your widget with your preferred Instagram handle, changing the settings for the width and number of columns based on your preferences. We recommend unchecking Show Frame so that your feed looks seamless on the Boutiques page.
Collections are well suited for the Featured Instashop template as well. A Collection is a set of multiple Looks that allows your audience to view and purchase products featured on your Instagram feed. For more information on how to set up a Collection, please reference ShopStyle's own Help Desk article about this topic.
