Hello! In this video, we will learn about your Campaign Site settings tab.

In the top bar of your Campaign Site editor, you can access several universal items, including your site design theme, where you can edit your site fonts and colors and your site Giving Form. We’ll cover both of these items in other lessons. The focus of this lesson is your settings tab.

Site settings

Here, we can access general, peer-to-peer, and advanced settings. In general, we can update our Campaign Name, which is a title that appears publicly in the browser tab title.

The Campaign Goal field is where we can define our goal. It’s good to know that progress bars in the site editor may not reflect this actual amount, but of course, progress bars on your live campaign will.

We can also edit the campaign end date, which may be helpful for internal tracking. If you’re using Funraise’s Facebook fundraiser integration, this date will also be passed to Facebook as the Facebook fundraiser end date.

After you’ve created your campaign site, you can no longer customize your site URL, but you can view it here. As a reminder, you can always access your live site from a quick link in your site editor's top bar.

And finally, you can provide a custom favicon if you’d like; this is the icon that appears in the browser tab. You’ll need to provide a direct link to your icon image. If your own website has a custom icon, that means you have a link you can place here, but you may need to contact your web developer to grab it.

Peer-to-Peer settings.

Peer-to-peer features enable supporters to create their own individual fundraising pages on your campaign site. For now, the most important thing to know is that you can enable or disable peer-to-peer features at any time. 

With peer-to-peer features enabled, you can further customize your fundraiser’s experience. Including fundraiser sign-up details, team pages, page personalizations, custom fundraiser questions, and fundraiser commitments.

Advanced settings

In the advanced tab, developers can add custom code like javascript or CSS into the head element of your Campaign Site. This is most often used to place marketing tracking scripts or custom styles. It’s best to leave custom code to developers because changes here can break your site!

And next, custom domain. You can connect a custom domain with your Funraise Campaign Site. Custom domains are optional—you’ll need to contact Funraise’s technical team to implement a custom domain. It’s important to leave this field blank until you've communicated with our technical support team; there are a few steps required for a custom domain.

Alright, and for good measure, it’s a good reminder that if you’ve made any changes to your website, you’ll want to Save… and publish these changes to your live site.

Great! That does it for this lesson, see you soon.
