Customize Other Web Forms: How to Setup and Customize a Signup Thank You Page (VIDEO)

Last Updated: Aug 30 2016 12:12 pm UTC

 

The Signup Thank You Page is displayed after users have subscribed to one of your lists.

To setup and customize a signup thank you form:

  1. Select the Web Sign up Forms Option from the Lists Menu. This will open the Form and Email Design Wizard

  2. The first step is to select the list from the Mailing List Drop Down.

  3. Next, elect the Sign up “Thank You” Page from the Resources Drop Down.

After you have selected the Sign up “Thank You” Page you can make changes to the behavior or design of your page through the Resource Settings section or the Design Settings section.

Resource Settings

 The Resource section of the form design wizard provides you a way to specify the page settings such as title and description:

  • Title—the title of the form. By default, this will be the same title as the list.
  • Redirect—a fully qualified URL to which to redirect the user instead of showing them the Thank You page.
  • Language—use the drop-down to select a language for the page.
Note: You must activate the link by checking the appropriate box. If you fill out the field with a URL and fail to check the box, the user will not be redirected.
Note: If you have signup form embedded into Facebook, DO NOT use redirect option. It will not work on Facebook unfortunately.

WYSIWYG Panel

The WYSIWYG panel shows you a real-time representation of your form or email as you are working on it. Changes you make to fields, labels, colors, sizes, images, etc. are reflected as you make them.

Editing Text

You can edit any of the text in the WYSIWYG panel of the “thank you” page by clicking on the Edit Icon. This will open the Edit Content window.

The Edit Content Window is a WYSIWYG editor with similar features that you would find in a word processor. Through this editor you can:

  • Change the font formatting (bold, italic, underline, or strike-through)
  • Modify the font justification (left, center, right, and justified)
  • Select a font format (such as Heading 1, Heading 2, etc.)
  • Choose a font family (such as Arial)
  • Select merge tags to include from your list
  • Change the font size
  • Change the font color
  • Highlight fonts, and
  • Even apply a customized CSS to highlighted text.

When you are finished making changes to the text, you can click the Save Changes to commit them (which will close the window and return you to the Form and Email Design Wizard) or you can click the Cancel Link to cancel your changes and close the window. 

Note: You are limited to 300 characters of text.

Saving Your Changes

When you have finished making your changes, click the Save Changes Button at the bottom of the editor window.
