Cross-domain communication help

Last Modified: 2013-11-17
We have a subscription based site where members can (among other things) create an HTML popup window (via shadowbox). Once they enter the content into a wysiwyg html editor, the content is saved to a MySQL database. Here's where it gets tricky. I need to add a button on the form that when clicked will generate a bit of javascript code that the member can then copy INTO THEIR OWN WEBSITE. This code needs to pass an ID back to our server at which time the server will get their content and return the content back to THEIR site and then call a method that will actually launch the popup. I'm an accomplished Coldfusion programmer but this is just way over my head. I sense that it is similar to how google analytics works or any of the blog sites works where they generate some custom javascript for you that you paste into your site and does some processing on their server and loads a customized widget on your page of some kind. I just have no clue how to approach it.
