The code is something like this <script type=”text/javascript” charset=”utf-8″> var asset_host = ‘’; var url = unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + asset_host + “/javascripts/widget.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”); document.write(url); </script> <script type=”text/javascript” charset=”utf-8″> var widget_options = {}; widget_options.iframe_base_url = asset_host + […]
