The Settings section of the Admin Portal contains content and configuration options that exist site-wide. These include the website's base Metadata used by search engines and social media platforms, top-level navigation menu, links to your campaign or organization profile across the web, external donation links, access to change featured logos, and add tracking information.
Metadata will help populate your links correctly with information that is relevant to the website. If a user shares your site in a text or a social media post, metadata populates the content shown to hit send or post. Metadata is also used by search engines to organize your site within search results.
Metadata is accessible from the Admin Portal by clicking Settings on the left-side navigation, then metadata. To edit the metadata, select the box as shown with the red square below.
Then select Metadata.
When you arrive at the metadata section in Settings, you can add/edit information to improve your SEO and make your site more searchable. Here are the items you will need to complete Metadata:
- SITE TITLE- This title will show up when you share your site on social media or in a text message.
- SITE DESCRIPTION- This description will show up on social media or in a text message. Be sure to keep it short.
- SITE URL
- SITE LANGUAGE
- AUTHOR NAME
- AUTHOR EMAIL ADDRESS
- FACEBOOK URL (OPTIONAL)
- AUTHOR TWITTER HANDLE (OPTIONAL)
- COPYRIGHT CREDIT
- FOOTER PAID FOR CREDIT (OPTIONAL)
- FOOTER SHORT DESCRIPTION (OPTIONAL)
- SOCIAL SHARE IMAGE- This image will show up in social shares. The optional size is 1200 x 630 pixels
- TWITTER CARD IMAGE
- SHOW PAID FOR CREDIT
In the navigation section of the CMS, you can choose your navigation items of existing pages or link out different URLs. You also can control how they display with our simple drag and drop organizer. Here is how you access the navigation and how it can be displayed:
Navigation is accessible from the Admin Portal by clicking Settings on the left-side navigation, then navigation. To edit the navigation, select the box as shown with the red square below.
Now you will have the ability to create your navigation and the order by creating Navigation titles that link to pages you have created on the site.
Some important things to know:
- You can drag and drop the order of the navigation items you created by clicking down and holding and dragging on this button.
- The Path can be anything that is after the / in the URL, or it can be the full URL of the page you wish to link to.
- This link is an auto-generated list of pages that you have created, and you will be able to select from that list for the redirect.
Campaign Details is where you will put your Link for ActBlue or NGPVAN for donation buttons, as well as all the social media icons you wish to display in the header.
Campaign Details are accessible from the Admin Portal by clicking Settings on the left-side navigation, then Campaign Details. To edit the Campaign Details, select the box as shown with the red square below.
Then select Campaign Details.
Next, you will be at the screen to input the necessary links that donation buttons and social buttons redirect to in the website's header or footer.
Website Options will allow you to access your site's featured logo, placement for tracking pixels, fonts, and donation source.
To get to website options, simply select Settings on the CMS's homepage navigation and then select Website Options.
When you access the options, you will see the following inputs, each of them are explained below the image:
Logo- This component allows the user to update their logo by simply accessing the media library to upload or select a new file. We recommend that the logo be no smaller than 512pxX512px and the file type be a vector file (svg, eps, ai)
Tracking Pixel- The tracking pixel component is an easy way for you to add general tracking to the site's homepage without running the risk of placing code directly into a body section of the homepage. We remove that step for you, and when you select which source and apply the unique identifier, our CMS places the pixel. We are built out for the next tracking pixels:
- Facebook Pixels
- Google Tag Manager
- Google Analytics
If you need another source, reach out to email@example.com.
Fonts- We'll be able to quickly load font types for the site by using TypeKit or GoogleFonts. This feature is more internal than external, meaning that we will set this up based on the build, but should you need to change the font types, you will have the ability to do so by linking directly to a style sheet.
Donation Source- Our sites currently integrate donation source links with providers ActBlue and NGPVAN/EveryAction donation platforms. When you select this source, our site will pull the proper code from these providers to enable the chosen donation amount to carry over to the donation page redirect. We also can sink up with NGPVAN/FastAction to have the domain programmed to work with this service to make it easy for most of your donors who already have a FastAction account to make a quick donation.
