Custom Code (Events Bridge)

The Custom Code feature is a powerful tool which enables creators to run their own scripts based on user interaction with their content.


EX.CO experiences are made up of lots of different actions or touch-points, all of which can be monitored or used to trigger your own script when they are embedded on your website. 


This functionality can be used for:

  • Social media tracking pixels (Create hyper-specific audience segments from the way your readers interact with content like personality quizzes and polls).
  • Trigger pop-ups or calls-to-action.
  • Deliver prizes or discount codes to users who have answered a question correctly.



How to set-up a Custom Code:


1) Edit/Open your EX.CO experience and click on 'Integrate' in the top menu.

2) Select Custom Code and then Add Integration.

3) Add a Name for your Custom Code, which can be anything you like:

4) Select the relevant components from your experience that you want to trigger your custom script:

You can choose between General item events (Actions such as item loads, engagement, or closed experiences), or from events that are specific to the content you've created, like a question or answer, as illustrated here:

5) Paste your custom code using HTML. If you try to enter plain text or anything else, this will prompt an error message:

6) This is an optional step. You are able to select URLs which you do or don't want to trigger the code:
