Product reviews widgets

Lipscore Widgets are the visible part of your Lipscore services and are usually integrated directly on your site. There is a variety of widgets available and they all serve their specific purpose. Good to know:

  • None of the widgets will work without the Initializer Script being present on the page (see below for instructions).
  • The language of Lipscore widgets is dependent on the language set up in the Initializer script.
  • Most widgets will adapt to the container they are in in terms of width and height.
  • Most widgets will inherit the visual styles for fonts/links etc from your site so they should all blend in nicely.

All the previews and codes of our widgets can be found in our Widgets Library  which you can also access from the menu in your Lipscore account. Let’s take a look at what the default and customized Product reviews widgets look like, where they are usually located and how they can be used on the website.

The default Testimonial widget has black text with gray quotation mark in the background. The widgets can be changed in CSS in the Lipscore account or in your website code by your own developers.

How it works

How it works

Customer browsing through the product page can log in with their social account and leave a question. You will get an email notification (sent to email address specified in Settings – General – Notifications) about a new question. In the Lipscore account Questions section you first decide whether you want to publish the question with your answer or not (uncheck the Publish this question checkbox or leave it checked), write your reply and Publish. Regardless of whether you publish the question and answer or not, the user will receive an email informing them about your reply.
