Important news for JavaScript broadcast customers

The Chartered Trading Standards Institute's website at www.tradingstandards.gov.uk is subject to the Government's cull of websites ending in 'gov.uk'.

Web browsers visiting this address from August 2015 will see the government's www.gov.uk website rather than our own. Until that point, CTSI's website will be available at both www.tradingstandards.gov.uk and on its new www.tradingstandards.uk address.

The JavaScript edition of CTSI's broadcast service retrieves its channel listings and articles from the tradingstandards.gov.uk domain. Once the domain is withdrawn, the JavaScript broadcast service will no longer operate as intended.

We have therefore extended the service so that it operates under a new domain name. If you use the JavaScript edition of broadcast, you'll need to make a simple change to your code to point to the new address.

In each document listing script, the line that reads:

document.write('src="http[s]:\/\/broadcast.tradingstandards.gov.uk\/index.js?');

must be changed to:

document.write('src="http[s]:\/\/broadcast.tslinkonline.co.uk\/index.js?');


In each document display script, the line that reads:

document.write('src="http[s]:\/\/broadcast.tradingstandards.gov.uk\/story.js?');

must be changed to:

document.write('src="http[s]:\/\/broadcast.tslinkonline.co.uk\/story.js?');

If needed, please change your search/replace routine according to your website's http / https status.

This is a very quick but important change that you need to make before the August deadline.

If you're not sure which edition of broadcast you're using, visit one of your own website's leaflet pages and look at the web address in your browser. If any part of the address contains the text 'frmClient', 'frmItemID' and 'frmShared', it's highly likely you're using the JavaScript edition of broadcast.

We apologise for the inconvinience this may cause you. This is a matter completely outside of our control.
