Options for integrating Passle with your website
Passle can be integrated into your site in many ways, none of them require a great deal of work and our experts are on hand to guide you through the process.
We have a couple of options for integrating Passle with your site. The method we would recommend as the most seamless is to use our jQuery plugin, in conjunction with adding a CNAME DNS record to allow the posts to be on a subdomain of your site.
The jQuery plugin is very simple to use: just a small script which will embed a feed of posts directly into your chosen web page. You can choose from a selection of layouts, including the ’tiled’ layout, or if you want a custom layout you have the option to write your own CSS to lay it out as you wish. Most people tend to use one of our predefined layouts.
When users click on a post, the page they then see is hosted by Passle.
Your layout options here are:
- Basic branding (including your logo, colours etc.) > View an example of basic branding.
- Fully customised branding (most commonly we just replicate the HTML from your site, normally without any elements which are likely to change. It’s up to you exactly what should be replicated) > View an example of fully customised branding.
If you choose not to integrate using the jQuery plugin, then you can just add a link to the root of your Passle, which will show the ‘tiled’ layout of all your posts with whichever branding you have selected above. View an example of an integrated jQuery plugin
Adding a CNAME
Adding the DNS record (CNAME) just takes a few minutes and allows you to maximise the SEO benefits of Passle, so we would definitely recommend doing this.
We are also able to provide an Atom (RSS) feed of your posts which can be used for creating a custom widget or similar. Read how to find your RSS feed
