How to Add a Tripadvisor Widget to Your Website (Easily)
To embed your Tripadviser widget in WordPress, all you have to do is follow our simple step-by-step instructions here.
Let’s get started!
Step 1: Install the Reviews Feed Pro Plugin
For the simplest way to add a Tripadvisor widget to your website, you can use the Reviews Feed Pro plugin.
With it, it’s easier than ever to create, customize, and embed reviews from trusted platforms — no coding needed.
Once you’re ready to get started, you can grab the Reviews Feed Pro plugin here. Next, install and activate the plugin on your website to continue.
For additional information, you can take a look at our user-friendly guide on how to install and activate WordPress plugins.
After the plugin has been installed and activated, it’s time to create your widget in step 2.
Step 2: Create a Tripadvisor Widget
To create your Tripadvisor widget, you can simply follow the plugin’s guided flow.
First, open the Reviews Feed » All Feeds menu from your dashboard and then click on the Add New button.
The next step is to add sources for your new reviews widget. For this tutorial, you can simply connect this widget to your Tripadvisor pages.
Just click on the Add Source button here to get started.
On top of connecting to Tripadvisor pages, you can also add sources from Facebook, Google, as well as Yelp reviews.
To continue, select the Tripadvisor option on the popup and click on Next.
With that, you now have a new Tripadvisor widget on your website. In step 3, you can go on and connect it to any Tripadvisor business page you want.
Step 3: Connect Your Widget to Tripadvisor
If you want to manually create a Tripadvisor widget, you’ll have to purchase access to the Tripadvisor API. As a result, showing reviews on your website could get expensive.
The good news? With this plugin, you can connect to Tripadvisor even without using an API key!
In case you already have a Tripadvisor API key, paste it into the popup and click on the Next button.
Or you can click on the Skip button to continue.
Now, it’s time to choose which Tripadvisor business page you’d like to connect with your widget.
All you have to do is paste the link to a Tripadvisor page here and then click on the Finish button.
Your new Tripadvisor widget will then show the reviews from this specific page. You can connect your own page this way or choose to show reviews from another Tripadvisor page.
Finally, click on the Next button to confirm this source for your Tripadvisor widget.
Your Tripadvisor widget will now automatically copy your website’s design and look beautiful right out of the box.
But before you embed your widget, you can use the plugin’s customization options to change how it looks.
Step 4: Customize Your Tripadvisor Reviews
For an easy way to customize your Tripadvisor widgets, all you have to do is select a pre-designed template that comes with the plugin.
You have 7 templates with different designs that you can pick from:
- Simple cards
- Single review
- Showcase carousel
- Grid carousel
After selecting your widget template, click on the Next button.
Afterward, the plugin will open the visual customizer so you can design your Tripadvisor widget in detail. Using the options on the left, you can customize your widget layout, header, button, review elements, and more.
Whenever you make any changes, the live preview on the right will show you how your Tripadvisor widget looks in real-time.
To get started, you can use the visual customizer to edit the layout of your Tripadvisor review widget.
You can select the Layout option on the left to do that.
Your Tripadvisor widget comes with 3 different layouts to choose from:
- List: Show all of your Tripadvisor reviews in a single column, one after the other
- Masonry: Use multiple columns to show tons of reviews on your widget at once
- Carousel: Display a carousel slideshow of Tripadvisor reviews and make your site more engaging
Once you select your widget’s new layout, confirm your changes by clicking on Save.
As you can see, the visual customizer makes it simple to redesign your Tripadvisor widgets — no coding needed.
To keep customizing your Tripadvisor widget, click on the Customize button at the top.
Using the remaining customization options, you can set your feed’s header design, button style, review elements, and much more.
Like before, remember to save your changes at the end by clicking on Save.
Once you do that, you can change the widget settings and control which reviews are visible on your site.
For that, open the Settings tab from the top and then click on Filters.
Using the panel on the left, you can choose to only show reviews with specific star ratings.
All you have to do is check the box next to the star rating you’d like to show.
To save your filters, you can click on the Save button like before.
Using the remaining settings, you can display selected reviews, hide reviews with banned terms, and much more.
As you can see, Reviews Feed Pro also lets you choose the reviews that are visible on your site. That way, you can display high-quality Tripadvisor reviews and hide reviews from trolls or spam bots.
Don’t forget to save your changes by clicking on the Save button at the end.
Since your Tripadvisor widget is now ready, you can move on to the final step and embed it on your WordPress website.
Step 5: Embed Tripadvisor Widget to Your Website
You can embed this Tripadvisor widget to your site using 2 different methods:
- Embed Tripadvisor widgets on a web page
- Embed Tripadvisor widgets on a website sidebar or footer
Let’s see how both of these methods are done below:
Embed Tripadvisor Widgets on a Web Page
You can start embedding your widget directly from the visual customizer by clicking on the Embed button.
Reviews Feed Pro will now show you the embed options for your Tripadvisor widget.
Since we’re embedding it in a web page, click on Add to a Page here.
You can then use the popup to select a WordPress page where you want to display your Tripadvisor reviews.
After selecting a page on the popup, click on the Add button to continue.
To help you embed your widget, Reviews Feed Pro will automatically open that page in the WordPress editor.
In this editor, you can add a new block by clicking on the plus (+) icon.
Next, use the search bar at the top and look for the “reviews feed” block.
To embed your Tripadvisor widget, you can then select the Reviews Feed block from the search results.
Finally, you can save your new Tripadvisor reviews widget by clicking on the Update button.
Using Reviews Feed Pro, creating, customizing, and embedding your Tripadvisor widgets will be easier than ever before. You can now open your website and see how your new widget looks.
With that, it’s time to check out the second way to embed your Tripadvisor reviews widget.
Embed Tripadvisor Widgets on a Website Sidebar or Footer
Want to show Tripadvisor reviews on your website’s widget-ready areas like the sidebar or footer?
You can use the plugin’s visual customizer for that as well.
To open your widget in the customizer once more, navigate to the Reviews Feed » All Feeds menu from your dashboard and click on your widget.
Once your visual customizer is open, you can start embedding your widget by clicking on Embed.
You’ll then see the popup with the embed options for your Tripadvisor widget.
This time, you can continue by clicking on the Add to a Widget button.
Once you do that, the plugin will redirect you to your website’s Widgets page so you can embed this Tripadvisor widget.
Before proceeding, you can go ahead and choose the location of your new widget.
To show your reviews on the website’s sidebar, click on the Sidebar panel here.
We’ll use the sidebar for our example as well.
Alternatively, you can show the reviews below your site’s content by clicking on Footer.
After selecting the location of your Tripadvisor widget, you can click on the plus icon (+) below to continue.
Finally, click on the Reviews Feed widget from the options.
You can now click on Update and save your new Tripadvisor widget.
Now, anyone visiting your website can see high-quality reviews from Tripadvisor, so you can get more sales with ease.
