ContentCast™ No-Cost Content : Setup Guide

Create a CNET Client Portal Account

Create an account at https://portal.cnetcontent.com. You will be asked to verify your email and fill out a profile and company information page.

Important Step: Add 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 on Site Integration Tab > Edit


Add Your Website's URL


Manage Users

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 > Manager 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.

Configure Content

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. After you have named and saved your script, you will be taken to the main settings page. To receive Inline Content, click the Inline Content check box. The default settings should work for most sites. To start receiving content, press Publish and then Get Code at the bottom of the page.

Any time you make changes to the code you must press Publish.
