Hello! In this lesson, we’ll learn about the types of pages you can add through Funraise's campaign site editor.
First, it’s good to know that you can create custom pages on your site. Custom pages can be used to host Frequently Asked Questions (saving you time and donors' frustration), an inspiring impact story, or something completely different.
Second, you can apply prebuilt page templates to your homepage or custom pages. We’ve built exceptional starting points for many types of campaign sites, including crowdfunding campaigns, monthly donation pages, and even a Giving Tuesday template.
When you apply a page template, it will completely override your page’s existing content, so only apply a page template as you’re starting your page design. Applying a template will only apply page content, while your site’s theme will remain the same.
Okay - now, let’s explore the pages on our site and how they can be edited. Starting with our homepage. All page templates will contain a navigation menu at the top and a footer at the bottom of your page.
When we open our site editor, we’ll land on the homepage for our campaign. All campaigns will have at least a homepage. We can see that we’re on the homepage by viewing the page selector in the top bar.
If your site has Funraise's peer-to-peer feature activated, you'll also have access to several other pages, including the fundraising login page, the fundraiser’s page, the team page, and the fundraiser search page. All of these page templates can be designed independently.
The homepage body can be completely customized with sections. You can configure section details and add new sections. Sections are a big deal, so we cover editing sections in another lesson—for now, you just need to know that the homepage is fully customizable… Which is a little bit different than other pages.
Next, let’s take a look at our login page. And remember, these additional pages only appear because this site has Funraise's peer-to-peer feature activated.
This login page template is used for both the login page and the fundraiser signup page. We can’t add new sections to this page, but we can edit the design, including the section background settings and color themes.
Next up, let’s jump to the search page, because it’s similar to the login page. This is the page where viewers can search for a fundraiser or team. In the top navigation, this page is linked from “Fundraisers”. On the search page, we’ll be able to edit the background and design theme for this page.
Alright, on to the fundraiser’s page template. This is the design template for all your individual fundraisers. You can edit this page's top banner background and theme settings.
Below the banner image is the fundraiser’s content. This content is controlled by your fundraiser, so it cannot be edited. Although you can not edit the content of this section, you can edit the section's theme and the donation button settings.
It’s good to know that if you’ve given your fundraisers the ability to add custom media to their page, any images or videos they add will appear in this section.
Below the fundraiser’s box, we can add custom sections. You’ll want to ensure your fundraiser page has a recent donation feed, and it’s a good idea to add some content that helps your fundraisers tell your organization’s story.
Alright, finally onto the team page template. This is the design template for your team fundraising pages. It’s very similar to the individual fundraiser’s page, but you can customize the team page separately.
We can customize the top banner, and just like the fundraiser page, the team’s information section contains content that can not be edited, but we can edit the section theme and the donation button.
Below the team information, we can begin adding custom sections; we recommend adding the team member section which will display the teams' fundraisers in a nice grid on the page. Below that, it’s a good idea to add a recent donation feed for this team, and of course, some information about the impact of this campaign.
Alright! Now you know all about Funraise’s campaign page templates. See you soon!
