Using Categories for eCards

Using Categories

eCard categories will allow you to display only eCards associated with a specific category. This feature will allow you to run simultaneous eCard campaigns without needing to create multiple subdomains. 


In order to use categories, you need to specify the category on the eCards and also create a separate page just for displaying eCard posts for that category. 


Setting up an eCard within a category


Adding a category to an eCard is easy! You can simply select a category from the right sidebar when you are creating/editing an eCard. You can also add a new category directly from here. 



Creating a new page to display a category


To create a new page, click “Add New” under “Page” on the left hand side. 


When you are on your new page, you will need to do a few things:

  1. Title. Name your page (this will also be your eCard URL)

  2. Text. Enter the shortcode to display the eCard form “[gravityform id="1" title="false" description="false"]”. You can use different shortcodes for different forms (i.e. free vs. paid eCards). 

  3. Optional Text. Add any campaign-specific, optional introduction text. 

  4. Category. Select the appropriate category to be displayed

  5. Price. Select the campaign-specific price, if different than the default eCard price. 

  6. Card Type. Select if the images are for a physical card or a digital eCard

  7. Send Date. Select the default send date, if applicable. The user can override this on the purchase page. 

  8. Campaign Image. Select the campaign-specific image that appears at the top of every page, if different than the default eCard image. 

  9. Welcome Page. Add a campaign-specific welcome page that the user will only see on their initial visit (or after they clear their cache. 

  10. Publish your campaign!
