Installing Candu on WordPress

By default, WordPress does not allow you to add JavaScript to your website, but there are plugins available to help. Candu script tags (below) should be inserted into the head of your site, and within the script tag, you can specify exactly where the content will appear.

Start by installing and activating the Insert Headers and Footers plugin. Upon activation, go to Settings > Insert Headers and Footers. You will see two boxes, one for the header and the other for the footer section.

Whitelisting Your Page

Before any content can be added or published, you must whitelist your page within Candu.

  • Add your domain to the list under "Whitelisted Domains"

  • Please note that you can use wildcards here as needed. Add a * before or after the URL to add a wildcard

If you encounter CORS errors when publishing content, it likely has to do with whitelisting. To check, try whitelisting just the wildcard and clear the cache.
