Knowledge Graph frontend

Adding the Knowledge Graph widget to a website

Basic setup

In order to add Knowledge Graph to your website you need to add some JavaScript code and CSS styling to your page.

You can copy the required JavaScript from the HTML returned by Funnelback, but will need to check that the URL paths are absolute. It should look something like the code below.

you need to ensure that:
  • paths to the JavaScript and CSS files are correct

  • required libraries are included

  • the funnelback.knowledge-graph.js code is included after all required libraries are loaded

  • the funnelback.knowledge-graph.css styling is included

  • widget is assigned to a website element that will trigger Knowledge Graph
