Event Page Sponsors Section

This article will guide you through what you can do with this section of designing and working with the Event Page. If you are just starting in designing your event page, you will likely want to start here.

Showcase corporate sponsorships with images and links to their sites in your Event Page. Include an action button for others to also become sponsors.

Sponsors Section

Display Section

If you decide to not use Sponsors, you can hide the entire section with the Show/Hide switch.

You can also delete the section by clicking the Trashcan icon, if you don't ever plan to use it. If you delete it, you will be shown a confirmation box before it completes the deletion.

Delete Warning

Warning: Deleting the section is basically irrecoverable. If you don't want to use the section, it is highly recommended to use the Show/Hide switch over the Delete option, on the off chance you may want to use this section at a later time.

Title

You can edit the Title to be anything you wish and include different formatting. You can also choose other variables from the drop down list. By default, it says "OUR SPONSORS."

Images

Include Sponsor Logos or Images in your Event Page. While it may be listed as a carousel type, and functions similarly to other carousels, the Sponsor Images do not rotate. Instead, they will show up to four images across the Event Page and continue down in neat rows, so all your sponsors will always be visible. 

Click on the Edit icon to add or edit images for your Sponsor section.

Sponsor Images

Click Upload to add images.

Note: The carousel will only take images smaller than 5MB.
File Size

Normally in a Media Carousel, you can add a title. In the Sponsor section's Image carousel, you can include the link to the Sponsor's site. When supporters click on the Sponsor image, it will take them to the Sponsor site in a new window or tab.

Note: While the image looks out of proportion in the carousel, it will show correctly on the Event Page.

Click the Trashcan to remove an image from the carousel. You will get a warning before it deletes.

Remove Hero Image warning

Click the Upload icon (the icon next to the Trashcan with the up arrow next to it) to swap out an image.

When you have multiple images, you can click one image and drag it to change the order for the carousel.

Sponsor Shuffle Example

Note: In the Dark Theme, the Sponsor images will be in color and may benefit from a transparent background. In the Light Theme, the default Background Color will be white and the images will show in greyscale instead of color.

Message

The Message section is usually used to thank your sponsors and/or refer to the Action Button for others to become sponsors.  It is a Text box that includes the Rich Text Editor so you can change the color and style of the text as well as include various event details.

If you do not want to include a message, you can use the Show/Hide switch to remove it from your Event Page.

Action Button

While the action button is listed generically, so can be used for anything, in the Sponsor section, it is primarily used for potential sponsors to complete a Corporate Sponsorship form, so they can then be included in the Sponsor section.

If you do not want to include the Action Button, you can use the Show/Hide switch to remove it from your Event Page.

Click the Edit icon to change the label on the button and to which form it will go.

Sponsor Button Edit

Display Label

The Display Label will be what appears on the Button on your Event Page. By default, the will say BECOME A SPONSOR, but can be changed to anything you like, up to 20 characters.

Link

The Link defaults to a drop down menu where you can directly add the link to any other form within the campaign to your Event Page. You can start typing the name of your form to narrow your selection.

You can also click Use an external link instead to direct your supporters to something like your homepage. If you change your mind about using an external link, you can click Use a MobileCause link instead to revert to the original design.

Note: you do need to include the http:// or https:// with external links.

Make sure to Save the Button settings when it is ready.

Background Color

The Background of the Sponsors section starts as dark grey (hex code #333333) for the Dark Theme and white (hex code #ffffff) with the Light Theme. 

To change the Background Color, enter a color's hexadecimal code or click on the color square and pick the color of your choice using the wheel and square.
