Widget Types

There are three types of widgets available. The default type is “mini”. You can supply a type data tag to change the default widget type.
Mini – data_type=”mini”

The mini widget displays your accounts aggregate review rating, number of stars, and a count of total reviews. Example
Sidebar – data_type=”sidebar”

The sidebar widget displays the mini-widget, plus a lite version of your three most recent reviews. You can change the widget to display more reviews by supplying a count data tag: data-count=”5″. This widget is great for displaying reviews on your website sidebar.
Full – data_type=”full”

The full widget displays the mini-widget, plus your three most recent reviews including the sub-ratings. You can change the widget to display more reviews by supplying a count data tag: data-count=”5″. Use this widget if you want to display your reviews as the primary content of a page. For example, this widget fits nicely on a home page below your existing home page content.
