The WebBuilder creates a template for a site using options you select for header colors, home page layout options, pre-made pages, and stock images that can be personalized to fit any organization, or you can design a layout from scratch using our drag and drop section features.

  1. Can we assign a user to be able to log-in only to access the web builder and not the financial part of aplos?

    1. Yes! There is a role called “Web Builder Manager” that will allow them only access to the website builder. It’s very handy for orgs who have volunteers that want to help on the website.

    1. Great question! You can create as many pages as you need within your website. You can do this from your Pages and Menu page by clicking on the green + button, then click “Add a new page to the menu.” This way, you can have a separate page per project, and can even link a specific donation page for that project to the page. Here’s a resource to learn more:

  2. Can we use a domain name we already have registered? How would we redirect that domain name to the Aplos site? Do you have widgets that would support multimedia playback?

    1. Absolutely! You can accomplish this in your Domain Setup. Here’s a resource to show how to do that:

      We do have content sections that you can add to your page to include either an image rotator or video playback. You can find those when adding a new page or editing an existing one by clicking the + in the top left of the screen, then under the “Simple Start” options, choose either “Slider” for rotating images, or “Video” to add a video to the page.

    1. Hi Isaiah,
      There isn’t a way to host media files in the Website Builder. However, if you have videos uploaded elsewhere, such as YouTube or Vimeo, you can insert a video content block with the URL for those videos, and those would be displayed on the page. For audio files, you could link from your website to a Google Drive or Dropbox folder where your audio files are stored.
      Hope that helps!
