You're excited about using CliClap but you don't want widgets appearing across your website and definitely not to distract your visitors from filling in their contact details on landing pages!
No worries, it's easy to configure CliClap where to show widgets and where not to.
From the Website Tree view:
You will see 2 options of displaying your website: List view or Tree view:
The default is the Tree view, this is a tree-like structure of your website so you can see a graphical representation of your website and content. Let's review the view header and understand what is presented:
- Name - displays 2 icons indicating the setting rules (described below in the Edit Action) followed by the directory name
- URL - the full URL path to the webpage
- Display Widgets - indicates whether widgets are displayed (green dot) or blocked (red dot) on this webpage
- Tags - list the tags associated to this webpage
- Actions - allows you to edit the settings or delete the node from the tree
By clicking on the edit option you can make the following changes:
- Populate all settings to sub directories - determine whether the settings for this directory should be populated to the sub-directories below (Display Widget/Tags) Note: the 1st icon in the Name field reflects this setting
- Inherit all settings from the parent directory - determine whether the settings for this directory should be inherited from the parent directory above (Display Widget/Tags) Note: the 2nd icon in the Name field reflects this setting, in addition: this attribute is not available on root nodes
- Display Widget - whether to display widgets on the webpage
- Tags - if you are using tags with your widgets then this is where you correlate which tags should appear on the webpage Tagging allows for classification of your content into groups. (optional setting)
The alternative view is the List view which displays your website in a flat view allowing you to multi-select nodes in order to edit and set the same settings.
Working with your website tree might be daunting at first but you will be able to navigate using some of the search capabilities described below:
- Top left: if you are looking for a particular web-page you can enter a keyword and search for pages by the keyword
- Top right: you can filter by tags or by active/inactive as related to the Display Widgets status
It's a good idea to filter your tree for sanity testing, for example:
- review all Inactive pages (those that are configured not to display widgets)
If you are using tags:
- filter on No Associated Tags - to check if some web-pages do not have any tags assigned
- filter on a specific tag(s) - to review you have assigned the web-pages properly
- If you are using tags you might want to consider a generic tag for the tree and set the root node to this tag and populate it to the entire tree. As you add segmented content you can edit the individual branches with the correct tags.
- If you identify a web-page where you do not want widgets to appear, i.e contact us page or register for webinar page, set Display Widgets to off and Inherit all settings from parent directory to off. This will prevent future changes on the parent directory to impact this branch/node. Identified below by the red icons.
