How to edit the widget type display mode on your website

Steps to take in order to change the widget type per jurisdiction to discrete, classic, blocker, footer, top, or hidden

Clym provides several options that you can choose from to determine where the Clym widget appears on your website, allowing you to keep your branding and the overall look and feel of your website consistent. Some data privacy regulations require that your widget is displayed in a certain way to your website visitors. Based on this, when your Clym account is created, each jurisdiction is automatically pre-configured based on regulation requirements. However, you may wish to change the display mode after that to meet your business needs.

Editing your widget display mode is an easy 3-step process:



1. Sign in to your Clym Portal

You should have received a magic link in your initial onboarding email. Please click Sign in from the email to get started. Alternatively, navigate to Clym's home page and click on Sign in in the upper right-hand corner.

If a geographical region is set to Hidden, please note that the Clym widget will only display the Accessibility banner if Accessibility is enabled on the domain. For more information on how to enable accessibility, please click here. If accessibility is not enabled, no widget will show for these users.
