How to move the review widget to the desired position in Shopify 1.0 themes

Applicable to all Shopify 1.0 themes.

Step 1: Access your theme's code editor:

Navigate to Shopify admin portal > Sales channel > Themes > Actions > Edit code

Step 2: Locate and open the product template file

Search for and open the "product.liquid" file in the Templates folder to view it in the right-side panel.

If you encounter a '.json' file (e.g., 'product.json') within your Templates folder of theme codes, this guide may not apply. Please refer to this help article or contact our support team for assistance.

Step 3: Copy the following code block for the 'review widget'

{% if content_for_header contains "/reviews\/v1\/sdk.js" %}
<div id="automizely_reviews_carousel_v2_production" ></div>
{% endif %}
<div id="automizely_reviews_carousel" style="display: none"></div>

Step 4: Paste the above 'review widget' code block into your desired position

For example, if you want the review widget above the "We Also Recommend" section:

After opening the "product.liquid" file, locate the 'product-template' section above the 'product-recommendations' section.
Insert the 'reviews widget' code block between these sections.

Step 5: Save the edited files and verify changes on your storefront

Verify the position of the review widget on your store. It should be right below your product, which is its ideal position.
