You can build additional content pages on top of the interface for administrators, partners, and advertisers using the Additional Pages feature. Some examples of additional content pages are announcements for new offers, promotions inside the network for partners, or hosted external pages that you want to be accessible from inside the application.
To manage your network’s additional pages, go to Company > Customize Application > Content > Additional Pages.
Adding Additional Pages
To create an additional page, first, click the Create Additional Page button in the top right. On the page that appears, you’ll see a number of settings.
If you want to have your page link appear in an existing dropdown in the application, set Type to “Menu Link”. Next, select the Interface that you want to see the link appear. It can appear in the partner, advertiser, or employee interfaces. Once that is selected, choose if you want to place the link above or below the default links with the Placement dropdown.
If you plan on adding content to a new page, set Location to “Internal”, as this allows you to add your custom content directly to a page.
If you want to link to an external webpage, then set Location to “External”, and in the Page Content section, you will enter the destination URL. In the Link Text field, enter the text that appears in the dropdown that links to this new page.
If Location is set to “Internal”, then you can enter the content of the page here. The fields that appear for adding this content are:
- Title: This is the title on the page, above the content. This is not the same as the link title.
Create New Tab
If you want to choose how to create a new tab in your system menu, select “New Tab” from the Type dropdown. Then select the interface that the tab that will appear. If this is going to point to a page inside your TUNE network, set Location to “Internal”. If you’re linking to a page outside your system, then enter the destination URL into the External URL field in the Page Content section. After you enter the link title in the Link Text field, you can click Save to publish the link.
Variables in Additional Pages
In the HTML field, you can implement custom tags to pass on relevant data to the user, for example, if the user is a partner and you want to pass on a form that the partner can fill out. Here are the current tags we support on an additional page:
- <firstname> – User’s first name
- <lastname> – User’s last name
- <email> – User’s email address
- <company> – The company name of the account (the partner/advertiser name)
- <advertiser_id> – If an advertiser, the ID of their account
- <advertiser_ref> – The reference ID for the advertiser
- <affiliate_id> – If a partner, the ID of their account
- <affiliate_ref> – The reference ID for the partner
The additional pages do not support server-side scripting, so programming languages like PHP, Ruby, and Python won’t process. Alternatively, you can add an iframe to an external page that does have this code, so that you can show more dynamic content.
