Note that this article's focus is on how to authorize a web site to access your social networking events that are entered in the soket web application. To understand how to display these social networking events on your business's web site, please review the articles about the soket social networking event plug in the developer forum.

 

Authorization of a Web Site to display your social networking events

A web site will not automatically be able to use the soket social networking event plug. This social networking event plug is a few lines of code provided by the soket web application to allow a web site to display your events. Plug code is copied from the soket web application and then pasted into the contents of a page on the web site you wish to display your social networking events. For more information on the plug, see how to create your soket social networking event plug within the developers forum.

Before a web site will be able to display your social networking events however, the web site domain will need to be authorized within the soket web application.
