Linking your SendHub Account

To tie the widget to your SendHub account please make the following changes to the sendhub_widget.html.  You will need to add your SendHub username and api-key at approximately line 209.  You can get your username and api-key from the My Settings page.

Choosing your Group(s)
 
You will also need to configure the group or groups that you want your customers to be able to opt-in.  You can retrieve your group ids using one of the following methods;
 
  • VIA SendHub Web App Interface – Log into your account and click on the Group Menu option and the select the group you would like to add.  In the URL address the Group Id is at the end of the string.
     

 
 
 
Within the sendhub_widget.html change the line(s) at approximately 158 to match the group id and the group name.  You can add or delete more options tags if you have more groups, or remove a group if you only have one.
          <option value="YOUR GROUP ID" selected="selected">GROUP NAME</option>
          <option value="YOUR OTHER GROUP ID">OTHER GROUP NAME</option>

Example of two groups one called Coupons and the second called Newsletter.
          <option value="115999753870914707" selected="selected">Coupons</option>
          <option value="115999753870914708">Newsletter</option>

 
Security

Don’t forget to protect your HTML and Javascript sources with an Obfuscater (e.g. JScrambler etc.) to make the code as protected as possible. Also, leveraging other standard best practices for integrating third party widgets is highly recommended.
