To install the Grappos product locator on your website you need a Unique ID (UID) from Grappos. Once you have your UID, replace “Your Grappos Unique ID” in the demo code with the provided UID. This will display your selected brand(s) and product(s) in the locator. Then simply paste the code with your UID into your website. Some notes:

  • The locator is designed to size to its container element, so please ensure the container and website are set up to take advantage of this resizing.
  • Make sure the web page hosting your locator has an SSL certificate. Without it, the ‘getMyLocation’ feature will not work for Google Chrome users. If needed, you can disable the ‘getMyLocation’ feature. Once disabled, users will be required to enter a ZIP code to start a search.
  • The appearance of the locator can be configured using the ‘grapposConfig’ values outlined below. All configurations are optional and can be changed at any time.
  • WordPress users: Before pasting in the code please make sure to select “Text” mode in your content editor.
  • WordPress users: If your settings are not working as expected, try removing any comments from the code.
  • WordPress users: To give the locator enough flexible space to dynamically resize for desktop and mobile screens you may need to adjust the settings of your template.



Once your Grappos product locator is installed, you can easily customize it using the configuration options outlined below:
