Start off by navigating to the Widgets feature from the navigation bar. Here you can view and manage all your existing widgets. Start creating a new widget by clicking on Create new widget in the top right.
You're greeted with the use case selection screen. Once you select one of the suggested categories, you can see all the widget templates that are related to that use case. Below them you can also see a recommended widget from that category.
Pick the one that works for you the best either from the recommendation or scroll down for more options.
Selecting a widget template opens up a preview window. In this window you'll see that some widget templates have multiple versions (Inpage or Popup). You can preview both before clicking Continue in the lower right corner.
Next up is the widget editor. Here you can customize your widget's appearance, content, and settings, in addition to getting the embed code for it.
The main points of interest here are:
Here the first thing you see is your embed code. This is the only snippet that you'll need to embed your widget. In the other tabs you can set all kinds of things relating to the appearance and content of your widget, such as a theme colour, header and paragraph texts, and which testimonials to display. The options differ a bit depending on which template you've chosen.
This toggle is simply for activating or deactivating the widget, so you don't need to remove the code if you want to pause the use of the widget. Popup widgets are off by default, so they wouldn't interfere with your site before setup is done.

Getting the embed code
Start by navigating to the Widgets section in Trustmary. In there, select a widget or create a new one.
In the widget editor, look for the Add to website button on the toolbar and click it to reveal the embed code.
What to do with the code snippet?
For the widgets to work, you'll need to copy the code from Trustmary to your website, either straight to the source code, or through your platform's editor. The website platforms usually have an element called code, html, embed or the like that can run the code.
