Default Pages and IDC Account Links
Before digging into the rest of the platform set up, a few default pages should be set up which you will be directing your customer to as they interact with projects on your site.
The checkout page will be used as your default for all project transactions. Create a page using the default WP editor and include the shortcode:
The dashboard page will be the page that project supporters and project creators* will go to for their account profile, copies of invoices, project interaction, and project management and payment account connection*. Create a page using the default WP editor and include the shortcode:
* IgnitionDeck Enterprise only
Important: Do not create either of the above pages with a drag and drop page editor as these can interfere with the correct shortcode functionality.
Membership Registration page
This page is automatically created when you install and activate the plugins and is essential to the PayPal payment gateway. It is not necessary to create this page manually but do not delete it or modify it in any way or PayPal will break!
IDC Member Account Links
How to Add IDC Account Links for Login, Registration, and Create Project to your site.
Important: The IgnitionDeck Commerce plugin must be activated before you proceed.
If you are using one of our 500 Framework themes, this process is simpler. See below.
If you’re not using one of our 500 Framework themes, you need to add IDC Account Links to your site’s navigation menu.
To do this automatically, use the tool we’ve included in Appearance > Customize > IDC Account Links. (See image to the right)
This will automatically add the IDC Account Links to your navigation menu. Just check the box for any menu you want them added to.
If you would like to manually add IDC Account Links anywhere on your site, they are as follows
- Login/Dashboard. Link to: http://yoursite.com/dashboard/
- Create Account. Link to: http://yoursite.com/dashboard/?action=register
- Create Project (for IDE version only). Link to: http://yoursite.com/dashboard/?create_project=1
500 Framework Method:
If you’re using one of our 500 Framework Themes, simply set a custom menu to the ‘Main Menu’ menu location in Appearance > Menus > Menu Locations. The Create Account and Login buttons will be placed on the right side of your menu. When a user is logged into your site, the two buttons are replaced by a single ‘My Account’ button, which goes directly to the Member Dashboard.
