The State field on Salsa pages defaults to the value "Select a state", allowing your users to select their state manually. But you can save your supporters some time by automatically setting the State field.
Here are two ways to set a different default value in the State field.
The first is to set the State by amending your page's URL as described in this article. Here's an example of a donation page where the state is defaulted to "TX":
If you would rather not change the URL, or you would like to have all of the Salsa pages for your organization have the state automatically defined, then read on!
- Campaign managers that modify templates.
- Edit your default template or the template that's assigned to the page where the state needs to be defaulted.
- Choose the state abbreviation. There's a reference page here in case you don't have the abbreviation on-hand.
- Notice that the state in the example is North Carolina (NC). Replace "NC" with your state abbreviation.
- Save the template
When you are done, all of the pages that use this template will have the state set to the state that you chose.
