Displaying menus on your site
How do I display my menu on my site?
Copy and paste the Dispaly Script found in the Menu Settings overlay box into your site where you want your menus to display. That's it. You will probably want to play around with some of the settings on your site to make sure that whatever HTML surrounds the menu code has the appropriate margins and padding to show things how you like. If this sounds like something you absolutely have no idea how to do, then let us know and we can probably help you.
Where do I find my one line of code to copy and paste?
From the Dashboard, click on the Menu Settings button for the menu you want to display.
In the overlay box, you will see all of the settings for the menu. On the bottom is the Display Script that you need to copy and paste into your site.
Can I control where my menu can be displayed?
Yes. In the Menu Settings overlay box, you can designate which sites will be able to link to your menu using the Display Script code. If you don't enter anything, the default is any site. If you enter something in the form of "mysite.com" then "www.mysite.com" will also be included and vice versa. Use "subdomain.mysite.com" to include a specific subdomain or an asterisk like "*.mysite.com" to allow any subdomain. Use a comma to separate hosts. When a Display Script is hosted on an external site and requests to get the information to display your menu, Farbly checks to make sure that the domain from which the request comes is authorized to display the menu.
