1. There is a Store Hours (New) section that is still being developed for future functionality. Stay tuned!

2. To embed a YouTube Playlist use the format below and replace the "[add playlist ID]" with the ID of a playlist (see screenshot showing how to find the playlist ID). It could even be from someone else's channel.[add play list id].

To embed a single Video, go to the video on YouTube, click the "Share" option, click the "Embed" option, then copy ONLY the URL within the quotes after "src="

3. Depending on your website, you may or may not need to use the Google Calendar ID and API Key fields.

4. The URL fields are for widgets on your e-commerce website. Depending on your website design, some of these widgets may not be available.

5. Newsletter action URL: First note is that not all newsletter providers are supported by our newsletter form widget, because the signup actions vary from provider to provider. Currently verified providers are Mad Mimi, Mail Chimp, though some others may work if the action URL format is similar. Sign in to your email newsletter service provider. Create a signup form, then get the HTML markup for the form. (It must be the HTML form version - you cannot use JS forms which are dynamically created when the page loads). Within that code, there should be a "form" element, and within the form there should be a quoted section relating to the "action." It will be a URL string of characters with identifying info that allows the signup form to relate the signups to your newsletter service account. For example, a Mad Mimi action might look like this: "". Put your signup form action URL into the Newsletter action URL field in the location panel, then click the 'Save' button on that page.
