Hey there! You can get 10X setup in minutes. Once setup, you'll have a community on your own Joomla website. Here's how:

Create an account

Enter your email address on the 10X homepage and create your account.  

If you already have an account, click "Login" on the 10X homepage.

Open your admin interface (app.10x.io)

Once logged in, click one of the "Setup my community" buttons on the 10X homepage. This will open your community's admin interface in a new tab. 

Tip: to access your admin interface directly, just type app.10x.io into a browser.

Install the javascript code

Click "Install 10X button" from the Get Started screen of your admin interface.

Click the 'Javascript' button, and copy the snippet of code.

<script type="text/javascript"> window.tenxConfig = { buttonId: "YOUR_BUTTON_ID" } </script> 

<script src="https://app.10x.io/frontdoor.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Note: if you copy the code above, you must manually change YOUR_BUTTON_ID (with the button ID shown in your Admin Interface).

(1) Open Joomla to the admin section. Set up general text filtering options for being able to use Javascript safely inside HTML source editor.

  • Open Content → Article Manager in your Joomla administrator panel and click on the 'Options' button in top right corner
  • In the new popup window with Article Manager Options, open the 'Text Filters' tab and select 'No Filtering' under your user group (it is usually 'Super Users')
  • Click 'Save'

(2) Configure your text editor so that it allows you to have <script> elements in your code.

  • In your administrator panel, go to Extensions → Plug-in Manager, find the 'Editors - TinyMCE' line and click it.
  • In TinyMCE options on right, find 'Prohibited elements' section and remove a mention of 'script' from it
  • Click 'Save'

Use the 'HTML' mode when pasting the 10X JavaScript code snippet into HTML.
