Imagine: being able to manage your tickets, venues, event calendar AND your WEBSITE from one place. Well, you don’t need to. HMT is here.
Here’s how it works:
(Click on any photo to view it full-sized.)
First, we will help you point your domain name (example: yourwebsite.com) to our server. If you don’t have a domain name, we will help you set one up. Once that’s done you can start adding content to your HMT-Powered Website, although most of the content (your events & event media) will load automagically!
To use our content management system (CMS) just log in to your HoldMyTicket account. Navigate to the Tools tab, then click on Content Manager.
There are three sections of the CMS: Pages, Navigation, and Blogs. You’ll use the Pages section to manage your website pages. You’ll use Navigation to build links to your pages that appear in a navigation (menu) bar at the top of your main page. The Blogs section will allow you to instantly create blog entries that collect in a widget to the right of your main page.
CMS – Pages
The first section of the CMS is the Pages screen. From here you can Add Pages, Edit them or Remove them. Each page supports search engine friendly titles and meta tags. You can edit your pages with a visual editor, as well as in HTML. Work on the page in DRAFT mode and when you want it to appear on your site just change it to PUBLISHED.
CMS – Navigation
The second section of the CMS is the Navigation screen. You will need to create a navigation link to every page you want to have listed in your navigation menu. Our navigation link setup supports both top-level and sub navigation links. To make sure the navigation links work, just visit the View page for that link, select PAGE to link it to an existing page and URL to point to an external url.
Tip: Navigation links can be reordered in their list view by simply clicking the arrows next to them and dragging and dropping!
CMS – Blog Posts
You can also create blog posts for your site using the CMS. It’s almost diabolically simple – you’ll wonder if there’s anything more to do. (Spoiler: there isn’t!)
Simply click on the Blogs tab, click Add Blog Posts, and type away using the text field (or HTML editor). The date and time will be stored automatically. Save your changes, click Add, and it’s published!
Just as with your pages (described above), you can Edit blog posts at any time you would like, including saving the blog posts as a Draft or Published post.
