IgnitionDeck Documentation

Project Info

Fill out the required information to make your Project live.

Post Title – This is the name of your project. This is what will show on all project pages and decks. This field is mandatory.

Content Editor – This is the standard WordPress content box. You may enter content here, including the IgnitionDeck Shortcodes.  This content is not used by the IgnitionDeck themes or in the IgnitionDeck Shortcodes.  This content may display when using non-ID themes.

Campaign End Options – Choose how to handle the campaign end. Leave ‘open’ to keep collecting payments even after the date passes, and choose ‘closed’ to remove pledge button when the end date arrives.

Funding Goal – this is the amount you wish to raise. Your big goal, and what the Progress Bar of the deck will calculate against. This field is mandatory.

Fundraising End Date – This is the date you will stop accepting funding. This field is mandatory.

Short Description – This is the short description of your whole project, used for the regular, mini, and embed decks.  This also displays in the Project Grid in Theme 500 and the Grid Shortcode.

Long Description – This is the long description of your project, used for displaying content below the video field. This is filled in to assist in the use of Shortcodes. Particularly the product_page_complete shortcode. We suggest you create this in your Content Editor up above, and then cut and paste it to the Long Description field.  This is also the main field used in Theme 500.

Project Price – This is the price of your project, or in the event of multiple price levels, the price of the first level. This field is mandatory.

Project Description – This is the description for your first price level, and will appear in the Regular widget, or Price Level shortcode.

Video – you may enter any form of html content here, but this field will support most embed formats, including YouTube, Vimeo, and Viddler.  In order to display the video, simply enter the URL of the video (i.e. https://youtu.be/123abc456efg).  You may also use an Image in this field – using the image html <img src=”yourlinktoyourimage”>

Project Reward Levels – the main area for the product/reward levels. You may include information such as short or long description, a minimum price, a limit on amount of backers, along with the level order of placement.  You must set up at least one (1) reward level.

Additional Reward Levels – if you wish to offer multiple prices and support levels (e.g. Give $5 and get x, give $10 and get y), you should enter those here. Simple click ‘Add Level’ to add another one. If you leave any additional reward levels blank, they will not be saved as a level. Note: When deleting a level, it will delete your last level added.

Important: if you need to reorder the reward levels at any point, the order numbering must start with 0 and not 1 otherwise an error will be created in the lightbox menu.

Image 1 – used for your project thumbnail (aka hero) image. This will display automatically on any project page created manually via a shortcode, or automatically via an IgnitionDeck theme.

FAQ – This field is not mandatory, but is a great place to add additional information. This text will be displayed in a special collapsible container, below the video and long description. You may format your FAQ however you’d like.

Updates – This field is not mandatory, but is a great place to add project updates. This text will be displayed in a special collapsible container. You can provide small updates to the project here, or create links to Blog Posts about your updates.

Please note:  that you can not use shortcodes directly within the Project Form fields.
