These instructions will make the widget appear on EVERY page within your site. However, this does not necessarily mean that all pages will be protected. You need to indicate which pages and content should be protected on the Paywallz portal.

That's it!

You're all done. Now you just need to confirm that you did things correctly. Open any browser to view your website and you should see that it now displays a widget that shows the word Share, as below.

You may have your widget show up in an alternate location - to the right or left side or even at the top - depending on how you defined it in the Paywallz portal. If you do NOT see the Share widget, try accessing the page from a new browser. If it still does not appear, please visit the Paywallz support page for troubleshooting tips.  Looking for your Paywallz Code Snippet? You can find it by logging in here.
