The use case here is when you have access to the code for the web applications and websites and where you don't want your end users to have to install an application so that they can play the Guidethrough web tours.

This is ideal for public-facing applications and websites.


Guidethrough's JavaScript Code Snippet deployment method is the easiest deployment method to enable end users to play your Guidethroughs without needing to do anything except navigate to your web application or website.

This method means that your end users do not need to do or install anything and they can use any modern browser to play the Guidethroughs. They simply navigate to your web application or to your website and the Guidethroughs that you have created and published will be available to them.

This is the most transparent and easiest way to give end-users access to your Guidethrough content.


The prerequisite to using this deployment method is that you must have access to your web application or website's HTML code so that you can copy and paste Guidethrough's code snippet.

Note also that the Guidethrough code snippet is specific and unique to your account.


Locating and copying your account's specific Guidethrough code snippet can be done in one of two ways:


1. From your Guidethrough Developer Chrome Extension:

Your Guidethrough code snippet can be added to your HTML code by:

a. From the Developer Extension, using the navigation bar on the top of screen, click on the gear icon to access Settings

then;

b. From Settings > Guidethrough > HTML Snippet

c. Highlight all of the text from <script> to </script> (including the <script> to </script> tags) and either right mouse click and select Copy or simply click on the copy icon to copy to the clipboard.

d. Add the copied code snippet to your web applications or websites by logging on to your web application's or website's management consoles and pasting the copied Guidethrough code snippet between the <body> and </body> tags in the HTML code of all the pages where you want end users to see your Guidethroughs.

Tip: Paste the selected Guidethrough script tag code snippet at the bottom of body tag of your web app or site's pages to speed up page loading.




2. From your account on the Guidethrough webapp portal:

Your Guidethrough code snippet can be added to your HTML code by:

a. Locating the JavaScript Code Snippet – login to your Guidethrough Developer Portal and using the navigation menu on the left toolbar, go to Settings > JavaScript Code Snippet Deployment Method; and

b. Highlight the code shown and copy it to the clipboard by right mouse clicking it and selecting Copy;



c. Add the copied code snippet to your web applications or websites by logging on to your web application's or website's management consoles and pasting the copied Guidethrough code snippet between the <body> and </body> tags in the HTML code of all the pages where you want end users to see your Guidethroughs.

Tip: Paste the selected Guidethrough script tag code snippet at the bottom of body tag of your web app or site's pages to speed up page loading.


Now, whenever an end user is viewing those pages on your web applications and websites, they will be able to play your published Guidethroughs.
