How to add the ‘Continue with’ tool

Last updated 01/25/2024

Before adding the ‘Continue with’ tool make sure you have added the initialization script tag or have the WordPress plugin installed.

This feature allows you to display the Bread & Butter ‘Continue with’ tool on your website homepage, or any other page:

Your visitors will now have the option to convert with one-click using the social accounts you make available to them. Once converted, the first and last name, along with the email address is recorded in the user journey of each visitor and made available in the Bread & Butter dashboard..

To add the ‘Continue With’ tool to any page you just need to follow these few steps:

Step 1

Find the initialization script you have added to your webpage (see initialization script if you have not added it already). Skip to Step 3 if you already have the WordPress plugin installed.

Step 2

In the initialization script, find the line:


Step 3

Add the following line under BreadButter.configure();


This will add the 'Continue With' tool to this page. If you want the 'Continue With' tool to appear on all pages, simply repeat the above for all pages.

null == window.breadbutterQueue && (window.breadbutterQueue = []), window.injectBreadButter = function (e) { "undefined" != typeof BreadButter && BreadButter.init ? e() : window.breadbutterQueue.push(e) };
injectBreadButter(function () {
