Sign Up

Next, you need to sign up for a Crafty Clicks account.

When you sign up, you will receive an access token by email. There is no obligation to buy anything and you automatically get 100 trial lookups. If you need more lookups to test the integration, please get in touch (support@craftyclicks.co.uk) and we will try to accommodate you.

Installation

Step 1

Copy your access token and paste it to line 22 of actinic_online_crafty_clicks.js (in place of xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx).

Step 2

In your Actinic Online admin panel go to Galleries -> Files.

Upload actinic_online_crafty_clicks.js. You can give it any name – say “Crafty Clicks JS”.

Make a note of the Relative Path where the file will be available from (you will need it in later). It will be in this format: Files/xxxxx/actinic_online_crafty_clicks.js

Step 3

In the admin panel under Site -> General Properties, make sure that under Advanced Properties, “Enable jQuery Javascript framework” is ticked.

Step 4

In the admin panel under Site -> Properties by Language, add this to all languages in the “End Block”:

<script type="text/javascript" src="_relative_path_from_step_2_"></script>

NOTE: Replace _relative_path_from_step_2_ with the path you got in step 2!

Step 5 (optional)

On lines 25 – 33 of actinic_online_crafty_clicks.js you will find some configuration settings. You will need to upload any changes again as per step 2.
