Hello,

Generally, you can add a selection of products to a web page using Single Product codes. You can generate such a code for every product on its editing page > Embed Product tab. In this section you can pick the elements that you'd like to display, please see the screenshot:



Then you can copy the resulting code, add it to the source of your web page and save the changes.

If you are referring to Wordpress site, you can also add a selection of products to a Page like it is described here: How to add one product to a page

Thank you very much! Works great.
But is it possible to change the size and the design too? It looks very big for me.

Hello!
Anna here, Ecwid team, thank you for the question.

Yes, it is possible to change the appearance of the Single Product widget. You can change it the following ways:

1) use the "Appearance" settings in your Ecwid Control Panel > Catalog > Products > product details page > Embed Product tab:



2) as well as other Ecwid storefront elements, the Single Product widget can be changed with the help of CSS codes. Please, refer to this article for the details on how to change the design of Ecwid elements: https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/a...e-Ecwid-design

If you have any further questions, we are here to help.
Kind regards,

Kind regards,

This embed product code is indeed totally stone age and does not fit well with blogging articles at all!

No float left/right option to wrap the text or other content within the article around product banner.

I use my own inline css within the first DIV tag to float left as seen in below image



However, the width of the banner is also a problem if you can't do your own inline css manually, because you will end up with an ugly white space to one side (if align left) or either side (if align center), due to the thinness and tallness of the banner



I use my own inline css to change width for this reason because Ecwid doesnt offer any aesthetics in this feature at all



If not it looks like this or worse



I am really baffled and surprised how Ecwid can leave this feature so incompatible for inserting into articles, where most blogs will have at least 700 to 800 p;ixel wide content areas

Come on Guys, spice the embed code up a bit with more than just unchangeable width, height and alignment features, because its embarrassing to see such thoughtlessness and lack of vision about how such an embed product code might look inside our blogposts for gosh sake!

Hello, Spencer!

Thank you for you invaluable feedback.

I can certainly agree with you, that it would be much easier, if the Single Product widget had properties like:

— align left\right
— width
— height

In fact, we have already reported this ideas, based on your feedback. I can't give you any ETA on when exactly this feature will be released, but we'll be sure to notify your of that.

So far, we are ready to help you with CSS, and the alignment for the widgets. Please, be sure, that you are welcomed to consult us and request help anytime with this kind of changes.

Accept our apologies, that the lacking of these features causes you distress and extra work. We do not mean that, of course, as we strive to do better and better with every piece of feedback from our merchants.

Thank you for understanding.
