Anytime you set up a Fundraising Event in the Dashboard, a corresponding website will be created.
To access your fundraising website, enter the URL you created for your event into a web browser address bar: (usually the event or campaign name) + swell.gives.
Example: Zoo Gala URL: zoogala.swell.gives or zoo.swell.gives
LAYOUT / TEMPLATE
Each event is based on one template, making it easier to set up a customized fundraising site. You add:
--> your own branding images
--> your own content
--> your own sponsors / logos
1. Main Event image
2. Your logo of choice (organizations or presenting sponsor)
3. Event details
4. Menu bar (will display all active "content" tabs you have created)
5. Social share buttons
6. Home Page / Content
8. Total amount raised
9. Sponsor logos
10. Facebook page information
11. & 12. Leaderboards and social feed (bottom of Dashboard)
Whenever you create a new Product in the Dashboard, the system is designed so that a corresponding button appears on your website. We can rename the buttons, but we cannot change the order or color. To change the language of the buttons, please complete the form HERE.
PREVIEW MODE / LAUNCHING YOUR SITE
While your site is being built, it will always be in PREVIEW MODE.
Preview mode means that the site is only visible to Owners and Users of the Dashboard (you and your team). When in preview mode, your site is "not live/launched to the public".
This is a safeguard designed to prevent the URL from accidentally being shared and seen by your guests and donors. It also prevents anyone from attempting to purchase tickets or make donations before the payment processor is connected.
