Embed An Example In Your Media Kit

Customers who wish to embed the example on some "Media Kit" page on their website can do so in one of two ways:

  • Option 1: If you have Wordpress and the Broadstreet plugin, you can use this shortcode anywhere in any post to render the example.

    [broadstreet ad="233579"]
  • Option 2: If you do not have Wordpress, or choose not install the Broadstreet plugin, you can embed this javascript code snippet into your post:

    <div street-address="233579"></div><script>
    (function(d, s) {
      // CLICK MACRO AND CONFIGURATION SECTION
      var destination = '%%CLICK_URL_ESC%%';
      // DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE
      var js, bjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
      js = d.createElement(s); js.async = true;
      js.src = "//ad.broadstreetads.com/display/233579.js?sa=1&"
        + (window.broadstreet ? 'init=0' : '')
        + (destination.indexOf('CLICK_URL_ESC') >= 0
          ? '' : '&destination=' + destination);
      bjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, bjs);
    }(document, 'script'));</script>
