API Integrations

Last Updated on

API integration is an option that allows you to use widgets such as a Twitter feed, MailChimp or other third-party plugins related to social media or Google Analytics. You will need to set some options on those third-party websites and enter keys into the Theme Options > Global Settings > API Integrations section of Jupiter.
