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.

commented on Can we ask for a user's email after Twitter signup?
Hi Jedd – Sorry about that! It looks like asking for an email address in the activation form is not going to be possible then — it appears to be a limitation of that ‘page type’. Regarding point #2, you could use the ‘subpage’ or ‘include’ liquid methods to insert an HTML form that refers to a signup page in your nation. For example, most of our stock themes include a line of code in the Layout.html file that looks like this: <div class=“join-form span6”>{% include “signup_form” with site.signup_page %}</div>

That takes all of the HTML from a file called _signup_form.html, which is a basic html form asking for email address, and it places it on the homepage. So you could do something in the sidebar that says: {% if request.sorta_logged_in? == true and request.current_signup.has_email? == false %} <div class=“join-form span6”>{% include “signup_form” with site.signup_page %}</div> {% endif %}

The div surrounding the {% include %} tag may need some tweaking depending on which theme that you are using, but that should work if your theme has that “_signup_form.html” file and a signup page in the website.
