Installing the VIP Templates Widget

The template widget is available exclusively to VIP members. We’ve tried to make it as flexible as possible so that it will work with many of the website technologies out there. That said we do not officially support tools such as Wix, GoDaddy’s site builder, Squarespace and similar products. This is due to the way they create websites and how they break our ability to dynamically size the web pages height. We have found some workarounds, but they are just that workarounds.
