Hello, i tried to find how to add product reviews and add videos in the product pages in the boundless theme,

but i dont find how to make them,

i need to add them to the boundless theme, because i dont find them just by using "normally" the boundless theme,

i need the product reviews to be over the footer menu like they are often on other websites,

and for the videos i need them to show the product in the page of the product, to increase the conversion rate.

Can you help me please ?

Hey Anthony!

 

Did not quite understand. You basically want to add a review widget which allows your awesome customers to leave video/picture reviews?

Let's start with video on product page. To add a video on the product page click on the video button as shown below.

For customer reviews I recommend Shopify's own review application, it does not allow your customers to add pictures by default, but it is completely free and super simple to use.

If you would like to have picture reviews and you are willing to spend a few bucks, I would use https://apps.shopify.com/loox

This is an accepted solution.

Hey again Anthony! 

 

Sorry, did not have the possibility to answer you before now. Had a lot of work recently. You can simply paste the code below in the box that shows after clicking insert video. This will show the video you linked. I have also made it so Youtube does not store information about your client unless they play they video. So it is privacy enhanced.

 

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/WsX2Lf8LtEc?controls=0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
