Using the Shapeways Widget
The Shapeways widget is an easy way to share your Shop and favorite products outside of Shapeways. They are a great tool to grow your shop’s presence online and drive more traffic to your shop. You can use them to showcase your shop and designs on your own website, or to share products that you love on forums or other sites that you are involved in. Pretty much any site that allows you to add your own custom html is ripe for sharing your Shapeways products!
There are 3 steps to customizing the Shapeways widget for your shop.
First, take the embed code below and replace YOURSHOPNAME with the name of your shop as it shows in your shop url. For this example, the Shapeways Shop url is shapeways.com/shops/bynatalia, so we've put "bynatalia" in the embed code. This is the only required information to make the embed work!
<iframe frameborder="0" style=" border:1px solid #c0c0c0; height:194px; width:628px;" src="/widget/include.php?shop=bynatalia"></iframe>
If you would like to specify a specific shop section to embed, instead of your entire shop, you can do so by replacing SHOPSECTIONNAME with the name that shows up in the url if you filter by a section. For this example, we've chosen the Jewelry section.
So our embed code now looks like this:
<iframe frameborder="0" style=" border:1px solid #c0c0c0; height:194px; width:628px;" src="/widget/include.php?shop=bynatalia&shopcat=jewelry"></iframe>
The third customization option that we have is to set a background color, if white isn't your style. You can select a grey background for the embed by adding in a simple &style=dark at the end. The default is to go with the white backgound, but you don't need to include it in the code. So our final code looks like:
<iframe frameborder="0" style=" border:1px solid #c0c0c0; height:194px; width:628px;" src="/widget/include.php?shop=YOURSHOPNAME&shopcat=SHOPSECTIONNAME&style=light"></iframe>
Which gives us:
Publishing your Wishlist or Favorites
