How To Get Started
By following the simple steps below, you can register a new account, add your authorized domains, add users, and configure your script for your website.
Create Portal Account
Create an account at portal.cnetcontent.com. You will be asked to verify your email and fill out a profile and company information page.
IMPORTANT STEP: Allowed Domains
The ContentCast system has built-in security that will deliver content to registered sites only. During the registration, you may add your sites by clicking the Add Domain button. You should add all root domains/URLs that your site uses (i.e. When adding the domain for http://www.mysite.com, you only need to add in "mysite.com.")
You may revisit this screen at any time by selecting, while logged in,
Admin > Advanced Settings, then clicking
Site Integration Tab > Edit
Add Your Website's URL
In this section, you can add the users who will be involved with technical implementations on your site. Added users will receive an
email invitation to begin the simple process of adding the CNET ContentCast script to your site.
From the main page, select
Admin > Manage Users.
From the following page, click Add Users, and enter the email address of the person you wish to add. Repeat for any team members you wish to add.
Add User Accounts
Press the Configure Product Page button on the home page. You will be asked to name your script. (Hint: use an intuitive name.) You
may change this setting later.
Name Your Script
After you have named and saved your script, you will be taken to the main settings page. To receive content, click the check box to the left to enable each component.
The default settings should work for most sites. To start receiving content, press Publish and then Get Code at the bottom of the page.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Pressing Publish
Any time you make changes to the code you must press Publish.
Publish and Pick-up Code
