Public Page Default Settings

Under the Settings Tab, you will find Public Page Default Settings. This area controls the default settings that will be distributed over your library of Public Signup Pages, Receipt pages and/or Self-Service Pages. This is different than the individual Public Signup Page settings.

You can customize the look and feel of your Public Pages (formerly known as Hosted Pages) to match your site by uploading a logo, providing custom CSS and JavaScript, and specifying URLs that link back to your site. There are two ways of doing this: you can either edit the Default Settings that apply to all Public Pages at once or, if you want additional control, Public Signup Pages allow you to edit their individual settings by overriding the Default Settings.

Reminder: There are default settings for all public pages AND individual page settings. You may change individual settings on Public Pages, without affecting the default settings. .

This section describes how to customize the look, feel, and behavior of your Public Pages. If you need information on how to use the Public Pages to sell Subscriptions, please see the Public Pages Intro documentation._

Choosing Default Settings for all Public Pages

To customize the Default Settings, click the “Settings” tab and then select the “Public Page Default Settings” in the menu on the left.

Default Public Signup Page Version

This sets the default layout version for Public Signup Pages, which are auto-created when a new Product is created, either via the API or the Admin UI. This can be changed for any individual Public Signup Page by editing that page’s layout version in the settings.

Page Title

The title will be displayed at the top of the page and in the title of the browser window. The and keywords will be replaced with the actual product name and product family name of the product. If left blank, the title will be set as “Product Family Name: Product Name”.

To upload a logo, use the file upload button to select your image. Supported file types are .gif, .jpeg, and .png. Images will automatically be resized to a maximum width of 800px and a maximum height of 100px.

  • Home Link URL: Your logo or company name will link to this URL

  • Privacy policy URL: A link to the Privacy Policy will appear in the footer

  • Terms and conditions URL: If a link to terms is a provided the customer will be required to agree to the terms before subscribing. A link to the terms will also appear in the footer.

The ‘Public Page Default Settings’ tab also provides input fields to collect custom urls. If a ‘Home link URL’ is provided, the title of the page or the Logo will link to that URL. ‘Terms and conditions URL’ and ‘Privacy policy URL’ links will appear in the footer if provided. Additionally, if a Terms link is provided a checkbox will appear to require the user to agree to the terms.

Check the checkbox next to each card logo for that logo to display on the Public Signup Page. Note that unchecking one of the the cards will not prevent users from entering a card of that type.

Add Custom CSS and JavaScript

The “Public Page Default Settings” tab also provides input fields to collect custom CSS and JavaScript for your site for both of the layout versions. Content in the CSS field will be included at the top of the page in a stylesheet tag. Custom JavaScript will be included at the bottom of the page and wrapped in a script tag.

We’ve put together a guide for using your own Customer Javascript and CSS for the Modern and for Classic Public Signup Pages.

Enable Security Question (CAPTCHA)

A CAPTCHA is a challenge-response test that is used to verify that the Public Signup Page is being submitted by a human and not a computer. This is helpful in preventing hackers from using the Public Signup Page for malicious reasons. It is highly recommended that you enable this option.

If enabled, we will provide a reCAPTCHA style input form to your page.
