|Please note that the information below is not strictly necessary. When Support creates a new system in VoterVoice, we always also create a wrapper / hosted page on our end that can serve as the public portal through which your supporters can utilize the VoterVoice software. Most clients prefer to use the plugin option instead because it imports the VoterVoice content into their page and thus allows them more control over the look and feel while keeping the supporters on their domain.|
Our VoterVoice Action Center Plugin enables you to plug the VoterVoice content into a page on your website. This allows you to maintain control over your page and provides the flexibility for you to edit anything surrounding our content. Most associations create a page on their website dedicated to the VoterVoice content called ‘Action Center’ or something similar.
Before installing the plugin, you will need to decide which of the plugin codes to use.
Follow these steps to set up one of those plugin codes:
1) Get the Plugin Code
In the VoterVoice admin site, click on the settings icon (the gear) the the top-right corner and choose the "Action Center Settings" option. At the top of the Action Center Settings page, click on the "Site Settings" tab shown below.
That will allow you to see (among other things) the Plugin Codes control.
Choose the tool you would like to be the default view for that via the "Feature" dropdown menu. If you choose a tool with individual actions (such as campaigns), you can also default to a specific campaign. Once you've made that selection, just copy the embed code to paste into your CMS.
2) Install the Code
In your website editor, edit the page where you want the VoterVoice content to appear. Make sure its title is generic enough that any VoterVoice content (campaigns, surveys, petitions, the bills search, etc...) can be shown there.
Simply paste the plugin code, followed immediately by <vv:main></vv:main>, into the HTML of the content area and save the page.
If you do not know how to edit the HTML or see only the code and not the actual content, please contact the support line for your website editor.
3) Set the Redirection URL in VoterVoice
Return to the Site Settings tab of the Action Center Settings page (where you pulled the plugin code). You to see the "Your Website Action Center URL" field.
Paste the URL of the page on which you installed the VoterVoice plugin code into that field and click the "Publish Site Settings" button at the top-right corner of the page.
Once you do that, any of the votervoice.net links listed here will redirect to your URL and show only the requested content.
