Make the TryBooking homepage yours by adding branding, styling, colours, text, images, maps, logos and page colours that reflect your business, company or event.
The Homepage is the first page your patrons see when they use TryBooking to book. Create this page in with your style and communicate all the messages to your patrons and the information they need.
Your Homepage can always be modified after your event is created or starts to sell. It can be located on the dashboard and selecting your event.
To locate your event homepages and images, from your dashboard, click on your event and select homepages and images.
There are 3 tabs at the top of the Homepage and Images page.
The Preview tab collects the data provided during the event setup and provides a view of what people will see on desktop, mobile or tablet. As you update the items in other areas or add images to your event, this page will instantly adjust.
The Design tab by default will display the event name, date, venue, address, contact details and social media share buttons as Tags. These Tags appear as words like [EVENT_NAME], [SESSION_TIME] and [DESCRIPTION] etc and update automatically as you update the fields on other pages or clone that event to make a new event.
From the formatting menu, drop down the Tags menu, then click and drag the field you wish to add to your homepage.
- When using Tags, if say a venue address isn’t correct, you can adjust this from the Venue details etc from within your event
- When copying text in, as this is a web page and uses HTML if you copy text from word do so via a text editor to remove any formatting.
- Not all fonts are suitable for web pages, so we recommend you stay with the standard ones TryBooking has.
- Use the source tab if you have code you wish to paste in.
- The hero image will become your search image if a search image doesn't exist.
- Review your final work via clicking the preview tab OR via Make a Booking.
The toolbar on the design page also allows you to add tables, hyperlinks and change fonts and colours.
Images can be added to your page in several different places These include the banner which is your main full-width image. The background image, which sits behind your page as a wallpaper and branding opportunity. The thumbnail search image is displayed on our search page (as below) when a user types your event name of keywords into the search page. Finally, extra images can be added to promote sponsors or other information at the bottom of the page. All images should be added via the images tab of the editor.
Adding images is simple. Click on the Image tab, determine the type of image you wish to you upload (Hero Image, Wallpaper etc), click browse and find your image, and then click upload.
