You can create a variety of different Page types in the Rising Campaigns platform. Any content block that requires its own URL and is not categorized by publish date can be considered a page. This includes basic content like Privacy Policies, organized content like your campaign's issues, and more complex structured content including robust pages with a mix of long form text, groups and kickers to branch more content or actions. In this section we will review all of the above.
Landing Pages are the most complex pages of the page types but will likely be the most used page type by default so you can always expand on your content if needed. These pages have the ability to have the standard features of a deck, image, and body but can also host promotional kickers specific to that page title to push actions and it can also provide the ability to have groups. The groups function allows for the content creator to provide endorsements, staff bios, or individual information on elected officials and many more options.
An embed page is designed to specifically house iframes and embed code. This page is built with a different layout to account for width and height of iframes and embeds from 3rd party sources. In most cases the embeddable iframe we get from 3rd party sources are not ideal sizes for all screen resolutions. In this page type we account for that by presetting setting an optimal height and width from the code you pasted in. We built this page type option for iframes specifically from 3rd party organizations like Mobilize and Speechifai.
