Use the Campaign Settings menu to adjust a campaign's share, mobile, embed, text, and other settings.
To access Campaign Settings, load a campaign in the Campaign Builder, and click on the Settings icon (it looks like a gear) in the top-left.
With the Campaign Settings window open, select one of the following options from the menu on the left-hand side:
Use the Campaign Name field to enter the name of the campaign as it will appear on Facebook in News Feed posts when someone share's the campaign's URL, or when someone posts a comment to the campaign. We use the campaign name for the og:title meta tag. See the Open Graph Meta Tags help doc for more information.
If you Custom Publish the campaign, for consistency reasons, you should use the same name here as you use for the name of the Facebook App.
Default Builder Width (in pixels)
Set the width of the Campaign Builder, in pixels. Please note that this field sets the width of the preview in the Campaign Builder; not the width of the campaign itself. You can set a maximum width for the published campaign in the global settings of the Style Panel.
Default Facebook Locale
Select the country from the dropdown that matches the Facebook locale set on the Facebook Page to which you are publishing your campaign.
The HTML <title> tag defines the title of your campaign in the browser toolbar, the default name when bookmarking your campaign, and the title of the campaign as it appears in search engine results.
This is the image that will show next to your page title on the browser tab, and can also display when your campaign is bookmarked. The image should be no larger than 32px x 32px.
The HTML lang attribute is used to assist search engines and browsers in identifying the language of your campaign.
Page Language Direction
The HTML dir attribute specifies which direction the text of the campaign flows.
- ltr - Default - text reads left-to-right.
- rtl - Text reads right-to-left.
- auto - Lets the browser choose based on the campaign's content.
When you or someone else shares a Campaign on Facebook, Google+, or other service that supports Open Graph, extra data is included with that share, including the Campaign's Default Title, Default Description, and Default Image.
Enter a name. If left blank, we use your campaign name. A maximum of 255 characters is allowed.
Enter a description. A maximum of 1000 characters is allowed.
For best results, use an image that is 1200 x 630 pixels in size. Images used that are not that size (or the same ratio) will appear stretched/warped when the link is shared on Facebook.
Force Tablets to be treated as Desktop
By default, ShortStack’s mobile visibility setting applies to tablets as well. Check this box to override this and treat tablets like desktops.
Name for Login Prompt
If the Mobile Login feature is in use (available on the Brand Plan or higher), this setting will let you customize the name of the login prompt users will see when they participate.
Note: Custom Publish settings are only available for campaigns that are already Custom Published to Facebook. Custom Publishing to Facebook is available on the Agency Plan or higher.
Default Label When Campaign is Installed
This is the campaign’s label as displayed on Facebook. The limit is 16 characters. You can change this label once the campaign is published, and enter a label of up to 100 characters at that time.
Facebook App Secret
If you reset the campaign’s App Secret in the Facebook Developer App Dashboard, you will need to enter the new App Secret here. Do not make any change to this field whatsoever unless you really, really, really know what you are doing.
Restrict Embedding to these Domains Only (recommended)
You can restrict embedding to specific domains. This feature is optional, but highly recommended. If left blank, your campaign can be embedded in any site.
For maximum flexibility, enter only the root domain of your site. For example, if your website address is http://www.example.com, you would enter just example.com into this field.
To restrict embedding to multiple websites, separate multiple domains with spaces.
Note: Embedding is available on the Business Plan or higher.
Allow crawlers to index your embedded campaign
If you would like bots used by search engines to be able to index the campaign you've embedded in your website, be sure to check this box.
Check the Enable Referral Program Banner box. If you haven't yet signed up for the Referral Program, click the blue "Sign Me Up" button before proceeding. After you sign up, you'll see your unique referral link that you can paste wherever you'd like, from your website to your blog. Below that are six different banners you can choose from to display on the campaign. The link and banners direct visitors back to ShortStack.com. If visitors sign up for a paid ShortStack account, you receive a percentage of their subscription; 30 percent for the first month and 10 percent every month after that.
When we redirect your Campaign URL to your campaign on Facebook, we attempt to track the referring URL for the Google Analytics Widget. However, certain referring URLs (for example, Flash URLs that end with .swf) can confuse Facebook and prevent display of your campaign. If this issue occurs, check this box.
Blacklist Referring Domains
Enter domains in this text area field, one line at a time, and ShortStack will try to block visitors who follow a link to the campaign from sites in this list. These URLs should NOT include "http://." For example:
- somedomain.com is correct, while
- http://www.somedomain.com is incorrect.
The Customize Text Menu lists each of the default messages used in the widget. To customize these messages and enter your own text, or to translate these messages into your users’ language, enter your own text into the fields in the Display this Instead column.
