If you want to use Cotnent Glass to share widgets on websites where Content Glass is not installed directly on the website you wil have to use either the Chrome plugin or Bookmarklet. The difference is that Chrome plugin provide more control and start Content glass automatically on website youenable Content Glass. The bookmarklet requires a click for Content Glass to load and start. In this chpater we will focus on CG Chrome browser.  

To download the chrome plugin first make sure you are using Chrome browser. Now visit Content Glass Crome Plugin link and install the plugin:

Install Chrome Plugin

After plugin was installed you will see the plugin icon on the toolbar and if the website is enabled you will also see CG-Button widget:

CG Chrome Plugin Icon

If you click the plugin icon a small dialog is open. This is where you can select the running CG application and this is where you can enable/disable Contnet Glass fo a website. Note that the default state is "disabled" and this give you better control on setting the websites where you want Content Glass to run:

Chrome Plugin dialog

On website where Content Glass was disabled or was not enabled (the default is disabled) you will see and icon with small power-off sign:

Chrome Plugin Disabled


There are websites where the plugin is  automatically blocked by the internal code of Content Glass. In that case you will see the no-entry sign:

Chrome Plugin Blocked

When CG-Button is running on a website using the button is the same as when CG is directly installed on a website as explained by other chapters of this user manual:

Note: Content Glass will only run on websites that permit 3'rd party scripts to run on them. Facebook for example does not permit that and therefore you can't use CG-Button plugin on Facebook.
