Website Management FAQ
How do I add email signup to my template?
Sometimes an organization wants a quick way for new supporters to signup for their emails without having to fill out a lengthy form. The code below creates a quick HTML-based form embedded into your template wrapper to submit new signups to your supporter list.
Simply copy and paste the following code into a useful spot within your template and you are good to go.
<form method="POST" action="http://sample.nodeurl.tld/save"> <input type="hidden" name="organization_KEY" value="YOUR ORGANIZATION KEY" /> <input type="hidden" name="table" value="supporter" /> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://YOUR REDIRECT PAGE"> Email Address: <input type="text" name="Email" /> <input type="submit" value="Join Mailing List" /> </form>
A couple of notes:
- The code currently does not have any formatting, which will have to be added during your configuration.
- Replace http://sample.nodeurl.tld with the base portion of your headquarters URL (meaning when you’re logged into Salsa), as this will reference your actual account.
- Remember, your organization KEY can be found in the Salsa interface, next to your organization’s name.
- Make sure to change the redirect field to a landing page that the supporter will go to after they submit the form, such as a thank you page or a full-length donation page to collect additional information.
If you would like to add a more lengthy form to your template, you can find additional code here.
How do I tell which supporters signed up through which signup page?
One way would be to go to Supporter Management and under query/export, set the conditions to Supporter fields >> Source details >> equals >> SIGNUP PAGE URL.
Another way would be to have new signups automatically tagged and entered into groups for them to be queried upon later, used for email targeting, etc.). If you are using your standard signup page, you can have them automatically entered into groups by choosing “Automatically add supporter to group(s)” and then choosing said groups under the Supporter Info tab. To have them tagged, choose the tag in the upper right section and click “add tag.”
If you are using an embedded signup form, you are going to want to include the groups and tags in with the form HTML. To have the form add the supporter to one or more groups, include anywhere in the form the following code, where 111 is the group key number.
<input type="hidden" name="link" value="groups" />
<input type="hidden" name="linkKey" value="111" />
To add to more than one group, repeat the code (both lines) with a different key number for each group.
To have the form apply one or more tags, include anywhere in the form the following code, where donor is the human-readable name of the tag.
<input type="hidden" name="tag" id="tag" value="donor"/>
To apply more than one tag, repeat the code with a different tag name for each tag.
How do I upload images and files into Salsa?
Uploading images used on Salsa pages and templates into Salsa’s secure servers will help your pages stay secure and will help ward off any security warnings. It is also a good idea to upload any files you may want to link to in an email blast. Uploading it will give you a URL for you to link to, making the file available to anyone to copy and download.
To upload an image or file, click “images and files” under the Website Management tab. Once you get to the menu, browse for the chosen file and then click “Upload.”
If you ever want to link to an image or file that’s stored within the Salsa interface, just find the file within the same library and link on the link. That will bring it up and allow you to copy the URL to use however you wish.
