Instructions for adding code to other platforms

Last Updated: May 20, 2014 04:21PM EDT

To implement Chitika ad code on a platform that we do not have a guide or plugin for, you will need access to your site’s HTML source code.

First, log in to the PartnerCenter to get your preferred ad code. Find directions for getting code here. Copy the code and paste it to your site. You will need to place it in a box, widget or other designated space that accepts HTML/JavaScript. Do not place the code into text-only spaces, as that will only show the text of the code, and not the ad. Save the changes you made, and you’re done!

To see if your code has been implemented correctly, view the source code of your site by right clicking on your website and selecting “View Page Source”. Search for “chitika” in the source code that comes up. Make sure that 1. You can see the code you just pasted, and 2. The code has not been cut off or altered in any way. If it looks exactly like the code you grabbed from the Get Code page, then you’re good!

Another way to make sure your ad code is working correctly is to use our ad preview tool. This simple tool allows you to see your site as your users would see it. Directions for using the preview tool are here.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to check with your website’s host to make sure that using Chitika is not a violation of their terms of service.
