When working on your site, you may find that your Form Page has some basic information on it that could stand to be updated. Fortunately, Art Storefronts provides you an easy and effective way to edit this information all in one place.
If you want to learn how to edit basic information on a Form page, please follow the directions below.
- Log in to you Art Storefronts Control Panel and click on the Form Page that contains the information you want to edit.
- Click on the tab labeled Info. This is where all the basic information for your form page is going to be contained.
- On the next page, you will see several options, but the first is Online Status. This can be set to On or Off. If set to On, it means that the Form page will appear in your navigation menu. If set to Off, it means that the Form page will not appear in the navigation bar. This does not take the page offline. It only means it cannot be accessed unless someone knows its exact URL.
- Password Protect is the next box. In this section, you can enter a password for your page. When a customer navigates to it they will be asked for the password and if they don’t know it, they will not be able to access the page.
- Next, we have the section labeled Billboard. You do have the ability of Adding, Editing or Deleting a billboard for your Form page. If you need more information on this, please review How To: Create a Slippery Billboard or How To: Create a Legacy Billboard.
- Name is the following section. This is where you can change the name of your Form page at any time. Please remember that this does appear on your website and your customers will see it. It is best to keep it simple and concise.
- Following name is Headline Text. This text and will appear on your page, as the main headline of your body content. For SEO purposes, the code used for this is an h1.
- Next you have Is This a Landing Page. This slider can be set to on or off. If the slider is set to on it means that this is a page your customer can literally land on or arrive at. If this is set to off, the customer won't ever land on this page and instead would have to specifically navigate to it.
- After that is Enable Spam Protection. This slider can be set to on or off. If set to on it means that anyone who is entering their information on your site will be asked if they are human and they must check a box stating as much. If it is set to off, the human check will not happen.
- Sender E-mail Address is next. In this box, you need to enter in the e-mail address that you want confirmation e-mails sent from. This does not have to be the same e-mail address that you use for your ASF account.
If you'd like to add a name to the "from" email, your format should be as follows:
Art Storefronts <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Submissions Should Be E-mailed To is the follow up box. Here, you need to enter in an e-mail address that you want submissions from your form page to go to. Again, this does not have to match the e-mail address you’re using for your ASF account and it does not have to match the Sender e-mail address.
- Lead Content is the next item in the list. The content you insert here will go at the top of the page, just before the main content on the page. It should be used when you'd like to have some descriptive text before a form, or if you'd like to describe a certain category of products to someone who lands on that page. For form pages, specifically, you should include information here about what the form page is used for and, possibly, provide your business hours.
- Then, we have Ending Content. The content you insert here will go at the bottom of the page, just before the footer of the page.
- Side Content is content that will appear off to the side of your actual form. You can enter in anything you like here.
- In the Submit Button Text Field you can enter in whatever text you’d like the submit button to have.
- Instant Confirmation Message Text is the next box. The content you insert here will appear on the screen immediately after your visitor submits the form.
- Send Confirmation E-mail is a slider that can be set to On or Off. If this is set to on, it means your customers will receive an automated e-mail from you that (hopefully) lets them know you received their information.
- The following box is Type of Confirmation E-mail.
If Default Template, w/ Form Submission Data, we will include the form submission data in the email that the customer receives. We will also use the same default header and footer we use for all your emails. This is the easiest option, because all you need to do is input the body of your email into the "Confirmation Email Content" section, and your email is ready to send.
If Default Template, No Form Submission Data, we will NOT include the form submission data in the email that the customer receives. We will also use the same default header and footer we use for all your emails.
If Custom Template (code from scratch), we will NOT include the form submission data in the email that the customer receives, nor will we use the same default header and footer we use for all your emails. The code you enter in the "Confirmation Email Content" section should contain the entire code of your email. This is a more advanced option for those who want to use custom coded emails.
- Confirmation E-mail Subject Text is the subject line of the confirmation email that your visitor will receive after they submit this form.
- Then, we have Confirmation E-mail Content. This is the section where you need to enter in all the information that you want your customers to see in the automatic response e-mail they receive from you. All formatting should be done via the WYSIWYG editor and if any custom code is used, Art Storefronts is not responsible for its functionality and will not aid or implement fixes to it.
- The Redirect URL section can be used to direct your customers to a different page after submitting their information via your form page.
- Apply Contact to Segments is next and this is where you can choose what Segment your customers are applied to. This helps sort customers out so they can be applied to appropriate lists in MailChimp or just keep everything broken down and organized in the Contact section of your site. If you need more information about Segments, please review How To: Create a Segment.
- Sync New Members to MailChimp Lists more directly relates to people who are using the Lead Capture Tool. Though, you can apply people to lists whether you are using the Lead Capture tool or not. If you need more information on MailChimp, please see How To: Use MailChimp in Conjunction with Art Storefronts.
- The last item on the page is Modal Pop-Up Window Properties and this will only appear and be available if your site plan includes the Lead Capture tool. As such, if you need to learn about how to use this section with your Lead Capture tool, we suggest reading over How To: Set Up the Lead Capture Tool.
- Once you’ve made all your changes and you’re happy with the information you’ve input, click the button labeled Save. DO NOT CLICK THE BACK BUTTON. If you do anything other than save this page, you may lose every change you just made.
