Integrating With WebAdvisor

Thursday, March 7th, 2013
There are three ways to integrate SVA.edu with WebAdvisor registration:
  • Create a Register button that links directly to WA.
  • Create a course description popup lightbox
  • Emulate shopping cart functionality where users can add/remove courses, like on the CE section.

Update 3/9/16: If you want to link directly to WebAdvisor, you can use the link format below where XXXXXX is a six digit section_id number (103259, for example). If you do not know the section_id then you’ll need to contact Colleage Computing. Make sure you apply the class “orange_button_link” rather than “webadvisor_link”.
