Content management

Managing the deals, pages, side bars and all that

The flexibility of the Getsocio platform permits you to incorporate as many pages as you wish as well as to remove the existing ones. Moreover, all the text your users can see, including buttons and menu item names, is for you to alter — this can be done on the Messages page of the Admin section.

You can edit any page by clicking Edit link on the top of that page, while being logged in as admin or by going to the Pages page of the Admin section.

Text formatting

The deal description, pages and side bars support rich markup, which means that you can use either standard HTML or Textile to format the text. Textile is a simplified markup language, here's a brief list of tags for you to refer to:

will make the text bold
is for emphasis
is used to make


will make the text green
numeric list
# item
# item
# item
bulleted list
* item
* item
* item

insert an image

Upload the image you want to add to any image hosting e.g. Tiny Pic, Flickr, Picasa or Image Shack. Copy the link the image hosting service will show you e.g., go back to the page you are editing and put the following tag

Needless to say that you can change the height and width values.

insert a video

The principle is the same as with the image - you need to upload the video somewhere first. You may use such services as YouTube, DailyMotion, Vimeo. Most video hosting services will offer your "share" or "embed" option after you upload the video. You may copy the html tags and paste them on your pages. Below is an example of what it should look like


When editing a page, you'll have the Available data block on the right hand - these are variables helping you to incorporate some automatically retrievable/calculated data. They do not require any programming skills from you, just copy and paste them as they are. "Key" is what you need to use e.g. . "Details" explain what this variable means, in most cases the wording is the same, i.e. when you write your users see 2015.

Menu items

Menu Items will help you to make sure that the newly added page will appear in the header or footer. Actually, you can put there (in the header or footer) a link to anywhere you wish - blog, your other website, etc. A simple rule to stick to - the external URL should look like http://link and a link to the local page should be /pages/newpagename

New Page

Adding another page is a straightforward 5-step process.

  1. Click New Page link on the Pages page of the Admin section and enter the code (a tip: best code is similar to the title e.g. affiliates)
  2. Enter the title - the name for this page.
  3. Fill in the "Body" - the page content itself.
  4. Sidebar will appear to the right from the major block.
  5. Menu is the final step here, a link will be added to the main page automatically, you only need to select the place - top or bottom.
