Get Started

Step One

If you haven’t already, create a Confection account. If you already have a Confection account, log in.

Continue to Step 2

Step Two

Click “My Account” (or “Set Up My Account” if you’re accessing your account for the first time). Enter your contact information, the domain(s) on which you want to use Confection, and select one of our two data storage options. Then, click “Save Changes.”

Continue to Step 3

Step Three

Click "Install Confection" (If you're accessing your account for the first time, this will be the default screen.) Next, select "PHP" to download the relevant scripts.

Continue to Step 4

Step Four

Click "Downloads" > "PHP" to save the necessary PHP files to your desktop. Unzip them, and upload cable.php to a PaaS or cloud service that can execute scripts (Elastic Beanstalk, Digital Ocean, Heroku, &c). (Simply uploading cable.php to a CDN that hosts static files won't work.) You'll need the link to this script later in this process.

Next, use our code-builder tool to set your privacy options, choose your banner position, and even upload your own logo. Click the button below to get started.

Get Your Custom Code

Make sure you add your complete, secure (ie., https:// included) URL you created earlier in this step (eg., https://link.to.script.com/cable.php) to the "Cable URL" field. To avoid mixed contenet errors, make sure you load cable.php over https:// vs. http://

Once that's done, paste the code above your site's </head> tag.

Next, paste the following code anywhere between your site's <body> </body> tags.

If character or line limits prevent this, host the script yourself or add this single line instead:

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/studiohyperset/[email protected]/body.js"></script>

Lastly, add the URL you created earlier in this step (eg., https://link.to.script.com/cable.php) to your account's list of authorized domains. To find this list, click "My Account" inside your Confection account.

That's it. You're done.
