Select ‘theme.liquid’ because this is the file that you’re going to edit.
Step 4: Paste the Code
Scroll all the way down until we find the body closing tag.
Past the code and click on ‘Save.’
Step 5: Preview and Save
To make sure you’ve done all these steps correctly then preview this site I’m going to open it in a new tab. If you see the widget right here, this means that you’ve installed it correctly.
There’s another way to check if you’ve set up everything correctly. Go back to userway.org and here click on the ‘Let’s Verify’ button. But again if you see the widget on your site that means you’ve done everything correctly.
