commented on How to tag people that sign up via the "Join us" email form on the homepage
Hi Wayne – I’m assuming that you are referring to the signup form in the header (for logged out users) still and not the main signup form on the signup page. If you are instead referring to the form on the signup page (not in the header), then you can just use the standard “tag people who signup with” field in the signup settings of that page. See here for more info on that:

However, if you are referring to the form in the header, I recommend using a liquid “IF/THEN” statement in your Layout.html file where the code for this form is stored. If the page that it is appearing on is a signup page, you can just ‘include’ the form, but if it is a different page then you’ll want to subpage the form with a different page, depending on the slug of the current page. In other words, you can have many different signup pages in your nation and a different one can be used as the ‘reference page’ for the form in the header depending on the slug of the page that is being viewed.

Here’s more on the subpage method:

And here’s more on how to use Liquid IF/THEN statements:


Original: {% include “signup_form” with site.signup_page %}

Updated: {% if page.type_name == “Signup” %} {% include “signup_form” %} {% elsif page.slug == “Example” %} {% subpage “example_signup” with “signup_form” %} {% elsif page.slug == “Issues” %} {% subpage “issues_signup” with “signup_form” %} {% elsif page.slug == “About” %} {% subpage “homepage_signup” with “signup_form” %} {% else %} {% subpage “other_signup” with “signup_form” %} {% endif %}

Shoot us an email at [email protected] if you are still having trouble with this.

commented on Where does the homepage widget get called?
Hey Adam – A little late here, but posting a response in case someone else finds this and has the same question. If you want to add some static content to your homepage, you can just add that in the “Template” tab of whatever page is your homepage. If you are looking to edit the content that gets pulled in via the homepage, check out the files called “_homepage_widget.html” and “_homepage_excerpt.html” in the Files tab of your custom theme.

commented on Sidebar/supporter nav Items not showing up
Hey Anna – You can totally do this with a little bit of customization to your website’s custom theme. The way that our themes work by default is that they use an HTML file called “_columns_1.html” if the “Show sidebar” checkbox in the page settings is unchecked and an HTML file called “_columns_2.html” if that checkbox is checked.

Then, within the “_columns_2.html” file, it says to use a different file, called “_supporter_nav.html” if the user is logged in and to display some other content (usually those three buttons) when the user is not logged in. It is this last bit of code that you want to edit. Specifically, you could copy the code used in there to display the other buttons and paste it just below those buttons, replacing the liquid variables (i.e. {{ site.button1_text }} and {{ site.button1_page.full_url_with_profile_recruiter }} ) with your own text and URL.

In short, the ‘Supporter nav’ is only displayed to logged in users, but you can customize what is displayed if the supporter nav is not displayed by editing the columns_2 file.

Note: Make sure that whichever pages you link to in these new buttons are set up to be viewable to anyone, not just logged-in users.
