• Customize attributes of the Review Stream widget by modifying the embed code.

First, navigate to Dashboard > Reviews > Review Stream.

Use the Customize Embed Code menu to edit your review stream.

Customize embed code

Below is an explanation of the different options available in this menu:

  • Show reviews? Toggle on to display reviews. Toggle off to remove them. This is toggled on by default.
  • Show aggregate? Toggle on to display the business’ aggregate rating. If Show reviews is also toggled on, the aggregate rating will appear above the reviews.
  • # of reviews: Change the number of reviews displayed in your stream at once.
  • Exclude / Include only reviews from: Use this setting to restrict the content of your review stream to specific review sites (by default, the stream will pull from all listings you have loaded in for a listing)
  • Display as carousel: this option will display only one review at a time, rotating between the # of reviews every few seconds.
  • Shuffle reviews: this option will display a random set of reviews instead of the most recent.

After you’re made your changes, click Update Embed Code to apply them. Copy your new embed code from underneath the menu and paste into the appropriate place on your website.

Manually modify the Embed Code (advanced)

Review count limit

By default, the Review Stream widget will display a maximum of 5 reviews, with the rest hidden behind a See More Reviews link. If the widget is embedded in a smaller piece of webpage real estate, it will display as many reviews as can be accommodated in that space. If you’d like to further limit or expand the number of reviews displayed beyond what these rules will cover, read on below.

To limit the number of reviews your stream displays, simply add the attribute data-review-limit=”#” inside the <div> tags. Here is an example embed code with the review limit set to 5.

<div class="reviewmybusiness-stream" data-review-limit="5" data-url="http://reviews.mybusiness.com/yourname"></div> <script>// <![CDATA[ !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.reviewmybusiness.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document, "script", "reviewmybusiness-wjs"); // ]]></script>

Exclude Review Sites

To exclude specific review sites from your stream, simply add the attribute data-exclude=”reviewsite” inside the <div> tags. Here is an example embed code with Facebook and Yelp excluded (note the use of commas to separate entries). Actual embed codes will vary slightly.

<div class="reviewmybusiness-stream" data-exclude="facebook,yelp" data-url="http://reviews.mybusiness.com/yourname"></div> <script>// <![CDATA[ !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.reviewmybusiness.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document, "script", "reviewmybusiness-wjs"); // ]]></script>

If you prefer, you can use the data-include attribute to exclude all sites and indicate which sites to include. Simply add the data-include=”reviewsite” attribute inside the <div> tags. Here is an example emded code with only Google+ included.

<div class="reviewmybusiness-stream" data-include="googleplus" data-url="http://reviews.mybusiness.com/yourname"></div> <script>// <![CDATA[ !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.reviewmybusiness.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document, "script", "reviewmybusiness-wjs"); // ]]></script>

You can also exclude specific review sites from the review stream by adding exclusions in Dashboard > Reviews > Monitor and Stream > Review Stream. Click the Exclude reviews from field to exclude any supported review sites.

Show Reviews as a Carousel

To show your reviews as a carousel, i.e. cross-fading through one review at a time, simply add the attribute data-carousel=”true” inside the <div> tags. Here is an example embed code with data-carousel included:

<div class="reviewmybusiness-stream" data-carousel="true" data-url="http://reviewmybusiness.com/yourname"></div> <script>// <![CDATA[ !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.reviewmybusiness.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document, "script", "reviewmybusiness-wjs"); // ]]></script>

Shuffle Review Order

To shuffle your review order, simply add the attribute data-shuffle=”true” inside the <div> tags. Here is an example embed code with data-shuffle included:

<div class="reviewmybusiness-stream" data-shuffle="true" data-url="http://reviewmybusiness.com/yourname"></div> <script>// <![CDATA[ !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.reviewmybusiness.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document, "script", "reviewmybusiness-wjs"); // ]]></script>
