What app blocks are in your app, and their purpose

The Miappi for Shopify App provides blocks that can be added to an existing section of your ecommerce site. This block will be represented as a Miappi UGC gallery on your webpage. You can place the block exactly where you want to use it on that page.

App blocks can be added, removed, re-positioned, and customized through the Theme editor. App blocks might only be compatible with certain page types. For example, a size chart app might only be compatible with product pages.

Note: App blocks can only be used with Online Store 2.0 themes. If you use a vintage theme, then you should read the app listing and documentation to understand whether the app is compatible with your theme.

Once you have installed the app block you will be able to input different parameters in the fields on the right hand side of the page.

  • If the template is not on a product page, you need to enter a folder id or product id for it to display any content.

  • Product templates will by default send the current SKU to the widget. You can override defaults by tagging products with a folder or a product id.

  • e.g, on the product page for a specific product add a tag called ‘miappi-folder-xxxx’ where xxxx is the folder id found in the Miappi dashboard.


What Shopify templates can Miappi app blocks be added to?

The Miappi app block can be added to any Shopify template, but the set up steps are different depending on the type of template.

Product pages

  • The app block can be added to the product page, and the SKU will be passed to the widget automatically.

  • You can override this behavior to show “Miappi Folders” or other products (see 'How to configure functional settings for app blocks')

  • Important: Posts are hidden by default until you have moderated them in the curate screen. To ensure that any posts are displayed via your Miappi app block, you must set the posts that you wish to display to “show” on the Miappi dashboard’s Curate screen, or in any Miappi Folder.

  • The widget will load any posts that have been tagged with the Monetize feature in Miappi Dashboard as containing this product SKU.

  • You need to tag the product with ‘miappi’ to enable the widget to display. This is to ensure you don’t have empty widgets on the page before you have set up the products on the Miappi dashboard’s Curate screen.

Non-Product pages (e.g Home page, Collections, Pages, Blogs, Cart / Checkout)

  • On these pages, the product cannot be auto detected. Instead, you can use the widget to display a folder of content that you curated earlier in the Miappi dashboard, or you can specify a product SKU to display.

Folders

  • In this case you need to provide a folder id, or a product SKU.

  • To create a Folder, in the Curate page of the Miappi dashboard, click the folder icon, then add a post to an existing folder or create a new folder.

Products

  • Find the SKU of the product from the Shopify product page (long number in the address bar on the product page)

  • Enter it in the widget settings for the template, e.g, 6702143275087
