The Win Your Wishlist Template lets visitors create a wishlist from prizes that you upload. These prizes could be from your catalog, or other items you’re giving away. This guide will show you how to upload your own prizes and walk you through the steps to make the Template your own.
Let’s get started!
Building the Campaign
Log in to your ShortStack account and select "Campaigns" from the menu at the top of the page. Click the orange "New" button. When asked "How would you like to start?", click the "Start with Template" button.
Choose the "Win Your Wishlist" template and then click the blue "Use this Template" button.
Enter a name. No one will see this name but you. You can leave it as "Wishlist Giveaway," or give it a unique name you’ll remember easily. When you’re done, click "Create Campaign." If you’re creating a Campaign on your own account or are an account owner or an admin on a team, you can also add any tags that will be associated with this Campaign.
Hover over the text at the top of the Campaign, and click the pencil icon that appears in the top-left corner to open the Edit Widget Window. Write a welcome message and describe the contest. When you’re done, click Save & Exit.
Step 5 (Optional)
Edit the Voting Widget. Find the Product Display Voting Widget in the Edit Widgets Panel and click on its pencil icon. For the most part, this widget is already set up, and should be left as-is. However, you may wish to make some small changes. To choose the number of entries the widget displays, click on the Sorting Menu, and enter a new number of entries to display.
To change the button text, click on the Text Menu. Note that we already changed the Default Text from "Vote" and "Voted" to "Add" and "Added." To customize this, replace our text in the Display This Instead column with your own. When you’re done, click Save & Exit.
Edit the Entry Form. Find the Form Widget just below the Voting Widget in the Edit Widgets Panel and click on the Edit Form Icon (it looks like a pencil on paper). Leave this My Wish List field unedited. When you’re done, click Save Form to return to the Campaign Builder.
Step 7 (Optional)
Below the entry form is a Links Widget with a button that reads "View and Share Results." To change this text, edit the Links Widget. When the Edit Widget Window opens, click the pencil icon at the right to open the Edit Link Window. Customize the Link Text field and enter your own URL. Save & Exit.
Customize the share messages. Edit the Share Widget and use the checkboxes at the left to choose which platforms are available to share to. Select a Share Image and, for each platform available, fill out the Share Title and Description. Save & Exit.
Submit items from your catalog into the Form Widget at the bottom of the Campaign. These will appear in the Voting Widget for visitors to "Add" to their entries. Prior to submitting items in your catalog, find the Preview Control Panel. First, make sure that you’re in Builder View, and then set both Test Mode and Live Entry Mode to On.
You’re all done! Click the orange "Publish Campaign" button at the top of the Campaign Builder to publish the Campaign to the web. When you do, the confirmation dialog appears, letting you know you’ve successfully published the Campaign. Click the Custom URL button to create a completely custom subdomain and choose a domain.
