Copy the Embed Code
To begin, navigate to your Sauce TV settings page and locate the embed code for your desired hub in the top left of your settings page.
Copy the provided embed code to your clipboard by clicking the "Copy embed code button".
Access Your Website's Backend
Login to your website's content management system (CMS) or backend editor. This is where you can make changes to your website's design and content.
To Edit Your Homepage
To begin customising your website's homepage, locate the corresponding section within your website's backend. This section is often labeled as "Homepage," "Front Page," or something similar. Click on this section to access the content editing options.
If you are using Shopify as your platform, follow these steps to access the customisation settings:
Go to your Shopify admin panel.
Navigate to the "Online Store" section.
Click on "Themes" to manage your store's themes.
Find your active theme and click on the "Customize" button next to it.
By following these steps, you'll be able to access the customisation settings specific to your Shopify theme and make changes to your homepage's content and layout.
Insert the Embed Code
In the editing interface, locate the specific area on your homepage where you want to embed your Sauce TV hub. This can be a dedicated section or a designated HTML "Section" or widget that allows code embedding. To proceed, follow these steps:
If you are using Shopify, you can easily add an HTML section to your homepage layout. Here's how:
a. Access your Shopify admin panel.
b. Navigate to the "Online Store" section.
c. Click on "Themes" to manage your store's themes.
d. Find your active theme and click on "Customize."
e. In the customisation options, look for the available sections for your homepage layouts.
f. Select or add an HTML section to the desired area on your homepage.
Once you've identified or added the HTML section, you can proceed to paste the embed code you copied from the Sauce TV dashboard into this section.
For Shopify Themes 2.0 users:
See below for Shopify Themes 2.0 App blocks:
Instead of using a new HTML section you can add an 'App Section' for Sauce TV:
In the 'Home Page' customisation, scroll to the bottom of the left-hand column:
Click on 'Add Section'.
Scroll through to find the 'Sauce TV' app and click to add it.
Hit 'Save' on the top right-hand side to apply your changes, and voila, you're all set!
You should now notice the 'Floating Video' thumbnail animating at the bottom right-hand corner of your homepage.
If you haven't published your Sauce TV video hub yet, the floating video will display an 'edit mode' warning. You can easily publish your hub via your Sauce dashboard by toggling the hub to 'Live'.
By adhering to these guidelines, you will effectively incorporate the embed code into your homepage, making your Sauce TV hub a pivotal aspect of the user experience. The distinct advantage of presenting the Sauce TV hub as an overlay is its adaptability; it can be placed anywhere within the body of your page without disrupting the layout or structure.

Here are some instances of how Sauce TV will enhance the visual appeal of your site:
The Floating Spotlight Reel on your Homepage:
This feature acts as a captivating, floating video portal that stays consistently in view as your visitors navigate your homepage. It premieres a selected video from the first channel, holding the users' attention and heightening their curiosity to discover more of your offerings. This leads to an immersive user experience that keeps your visitors engrossed. By adding this extra dimension of interactivity to your homepage, you augment their overall browsing and shopping expedition, making it truly memorable.
Your TV Hub:
This is essentially a dedicated section on your website for all video content, acting like your own personal television station. This hub centralises all of your videos, making it easy for visitors to find and explore them. Whether it's product demonstrations, customer testimonials, educational content, or behind-the-scenes footage, the TV Hub is a one-stop destination for all your video needs. The ability to categorise and organise videos makes it user-friendly, keeping your visitors engaged longer and encouraging them to dive deeper into your brand story and offerings. This enhances not only their browsing experience but also their shopping journey, by providing them with informative and compelling visual content.
Your Lightbox and Shoppable Video Player:
Your Lightbox is a feature that displays your video content in a focused, distraction-free manner. When a visitor clicks on a video, the Lightbox expands the video to fill the screen while dimming the rest of the website. This provides an immersive, cinema-like viewing experience for your audience.
The Shoppable Video Player takes your user experience to another level by combining entertainment and commerce in a seamless, integrated manner. As your visitors watch your videos, they can directly add products featured in the video to their shopping cart without having to leave the player. This innovative feature enhances the shopping journey, making it interactive, engaging, and remarkably efficient. It's not just about watching videos anymore - it's about shopping while being entertained, making your site a truly interactive shopping destination.
