Edit pages you want to add analytics code to (best to place code on main template page as it will appear on all the pages associated with that template)-
You're all set. Apply these steps to any template you want analyzed by Google.
There are basically two types of URLs you will want to setup to redirect when transitioning a site to the PXS system:
These are basically individual URLs that when entered you want to go to a new real page. The Sitefinity CMS platform supports mapping multiple URLs to a single page out of the box. You simply create the page needed on the site, then go to the properties tab of that page, and add the extra URLs you want redirected to the current page. For each one, check the box that says “Redirect to the default URL” and a 301 header will be passed to the client if the extra URL address is accessed. You can learn more about setting this up by reviewing the Sitefinity user guide on page 37.
In addition, I believe the server has been configured to allow you to upload an .htaccess file which you can use to manually override the system and perform redirects. You should test this before jumping to this solution though, as I have not used this myself, and can’t guarantee that all site will support it.
These are pages where a parameter passed in (like eventID or categoryID) that would change where the user should be redirected. In general the querystring based pages are not SEO friendly, so we don’t use them in the PXS system. Instead every page uses verbose URLs. Since we can’t simply map the dynamic page to a direct page we can’t use the above 301 methods. Instead we need to read the parameter being passed in, and translate it to the real URL the new system uses to do the redirect. To accomplish this we created a control called "Querystring Redirect" and can be found under the “Analytics” grouping of available controls. You simply add it to a page mapped to the base URL of the dynamic page, then put the query string param in (everything after the "?") and where you want it to redirect in its settings. You can use it as many times as you want on a page.
If you have lots of different URLs you want to redirect based on different querystrings then I suggest you setup a single page like "/Templates/Redirects.aspx" on the site and add multiple URL's to the page using the page properties, then add the redirect control to that page for each unique redirect. Just make sure the new page has “show in menu” as off, and use a blank template so it isn't loading a bunch of stuff needlessly.
Example: If we were to redirect the Jeff Dunham page (http://www.mydomain.com/Event.aspx?EventID=22746) you would do the following:
Now all requests for the /events.aspx page will go to our redirect page, and our redirect page will redirect the user if the request includes a ?EventID=22746 in the URL. You may want to add a control to the redirect page with no querystring in case the user goes to the page direct. You will probably also want to add some content to the page in case a user hits the page, but a redirect match was not found.
You can use this one page for multiple dynamic pages as long as the querystring matches are unique. The redirect will not disseminate between the category.aspx vs. the event.aspx. So if you also want to redirect the “comedy” category, you would do the following:
With the above you now have a dynamic redirect page handling redirects for your old events.aspx page as well as your old category.aspx page. You can obviously made adjustments above depending on what redirects are needed and how you want different scenarios handled, but between the extra URLs in the properties of pages, and this control – you have everything you need to map out your old URLs to the new system.
If DNS resides with you, simply contact the company that services your DNS to make modifications. If your DNS resides with Ticket Platform, contact your sales representative to receive your user name and ID to log in to your Web Control Center. You can set up your email accounts here.
This content is shared among all the performer page templates (pages - sitemap - pxs templates).
The default text reads: "Your ticket company is your source for [performer name] tickets..."

A slideshow, or featurette, rotates through the images and text of specified catalogues. You must specify these catalogues in the Modules - TicketPlatform section of sitefinity. Click catalogues.
The catalogues are named for their location. ie- "Home - Featurette - World Series", or "Sports - Featurette - NHL."
Clicking edit on any catalogue will let you change basic info about it, give it a priority rating (for slideshow order) or add a picture. Clicking "Add Catalogue To Features" will take you to a list of places to add the catalogue. The same catalogue can appear in multiple places across your site.
If you would like to change the picture for a slide, while keeping the list of associated performers/events intact, you can search or upload from the main catalogue page, just like on a performer page.
If you would like to remove the slide altogether, just go to "Add Catalogue to Features" and move the Feature from the right side column to the left side. If you want another catalogue (and performer list) to appear in its place, take note of that "Feature Name" and go to this area in another catalogue and add it. Just move the "Feature Name" from the left column to the right.
This applies to any catalogue on your site contained in a Top X Wrapper, such as the left nav or the fan fav area.
The answer is that you cannot just remove the 'more' link. However, you can make it so a catalogue has no 'more' entries to display: just match the number of performers in that catalogue to the number of entries displayed, and there will be no 'more' possible performers to list.
Catalogs that are added or edited on the top navigation function differently then static pages that are added to the top navigation. The change made to catalogs will not take affect immediately as custom pages do, they take proximately 15-20 minutes to show on the live site. There is a technique called "toggling" that can make that change take place instantly.
Follow these instructions.
Toggling is a technique that helps reset your cache so you don't have to wait to see catalog modifications in your top navigation. Here's how you do it.
This is very simple.
Each performer has a priority sort order that you can associate to it. Go to Modules, Ticket Platform, Performers, Filter to your performer (event, venue or category) and hit refresh. Edit the performer and enter priority sort order number. If all the performers in the catalog you are working in have a priority sort number then they will show in that order, If not the performer (event, venue or category) will show in that catalog alphabetically.
A favicon is a small image used to identify a website in a webbrowser. You see it at the top of tabs, or next to a bookmark.
Making a favicon for your website is easy!
Thats all it takes!
This icon should be visible at the top of each page on both the frontend and in sitefinity.
The PXS has all the tools you need to make any form you desire.
The overall steps to putting a form on a page.
Login to sitefinity. Go to modules - forms. Create a new item.
Input a title and a short description, ie - You can sell your tickets right here!
Now below you can enter every field you want on your form. First select a field type, then fill out specifics about each field in the section below. As you create fields, click add to form.
You can see the list of fields below and their order on the form. Here are some common field types:
After you have all the fields you want on the form, go below to the form settings:
Then save. You now have a form ready to be put on any part of your site you please.
Now we need a physical page for the form. Head, in sitefinity, to pages - sitemap and create a new page. Enter in all the basic information and select that this is to be a normal page. Click create. When prompted to choose a template, select Main_Template.
Now you can add content to the page by dropping controls into areas you like. We're looking for the "Form View" control in the section "Forms." When you find it, drag the "Form View" control onto the body of the page (called LeftMainContent). Click edit in the top right of the control and in the window that pops up, click "select a form." You should see the list of forms available on your site (including the one you made earlier).
Select that form, click done on the control, and publish the page.
You will now have a form on a page.
A control renders data onto your page. You can see a list of them by going into Pages - sitemap and editing any page. Notice the list on the right hand side of the page, with controls broken down by category.
There are many types of controls -
Content that is site-wide is stored on a template. There are by default two templates - the Main_Template that handles almost all pages on your PXS, and the Ticket_template that handles the viewing of tickets on the interactive map page.
If you want to make changes to your templates, be sure to edit both the Main and Ticket templates so that they match.
To edit the template, login to sitefinity and go to pages - templates and edit the template of your choosing. This functions very similarly to editing a page. You can change the properties of any control on the page, edit generic content to change/update your logo, add/remove links from the footer, put social bookmark icons in the header, etc.
Take a look, but be careful about putting too much on the template - the site gives it priority over the content of a static page, so it will shove any controls on a static page out of the way and may cause some formatting issues.
For the Performer List control and the Nearby List control, you have to set the exact category names to filter that TicketNetwork provides. If these lists are not showing, it is possible that the name is not exact.
Go to modules - ticketplatform- categories and look at the categories supplied by TN. These are broken down into Parent/Child/Grandchild sub-categories.
Make sure the names from TN match the names you put into your control exactly.
This is easy as pie!
Log into sitefinity. Go to pages - sitemap and click edit on the page in question.
While on that page, go to the list of controls on the right hand side. Find the category "Ticket Platform" and select the control for "SearchResults." Drag that control to the body of your page.
Now, edit the SearchResults control. You'll see many categories of options. Most will be set for you already. Look for display and find the field for "title." This is the title for your list of events.
Now to choose the specifics of what the list will display. Go down to "Override." You'll see there the many parameters you can set to filter the search list. For most purposes, you'll just need to edit the "City" field. If you're making a link to somewhere like Kansas City (there are multiple) then you should also specify state.
This is quite easy to do!
There are two integral parts of the Newsletter signup process.
1) Having a "Control" on the page - a physical place - where the user can enter data about themselves.
2) Having a list in the "backend" that builds as users sign up so that you can email to them easily.
Here's how to do it:
1) Go in sitefinity to pages - sitemap. Find the page where you'd like your newsletter to appear. While on the page, go to the list of controls on the right side and under "newsletters" choose "subscription form." Drag the form to the area on your page where it should reside.
2) Go in sitefinity to modules - newletters. make sure you have created a "subscriber group" that the form should add users to. Make sure the control's settings from step one are pointing to that group.
* If you have not yet setup your SMTP settings, it should say so in the newsletter area. Talk to your email provider and ask for their SMTP server and PORT. You should know your login/pw already. This is how your website emails out your newsletter to a subscriber group.
The forms you see on the site are controllable in size and placement from the pages section of sitefinity, but you'll notice you cannot edit the content of the form there. Thats because each form control references form data within the modules of sitefinity.
To access your site-wide forms so that you can add/edit/delete this info, go to "Modules -> Forms." There, you'll see the default "Contact Us" form, and from here you can make new forms.
To edit an existing form, just click on it and go to "edit this form."
Fist, and foremost, lets eliminate the possibility of a CACHING issue. Clear your cache after you make your changes, and then re-load the page. If you have google chrome, use "Incogneto" (click the wrench).
If the image is still not showing up, go to the catalog in question (modules-ticketplatform-catalogs) and be sure you have selected the boxes for "Include in Sitemap", "Include in Children", and "Active in Sitemap."
These two approaches will solve your problem 95% of the time.
Performers and events can be sorted into catalogues, which show in different parts of the site. Everywhere on the site with a list of performers is a catalogue.
Catalogues can appear in multiple areas of the site at once: ie - a side navigation or a slideshow.
There are many preloaded catalogues on the site, each named for their location on the site. To add a performer to one of the catalogues on the site, go to Modules - TicketPlatform - Performers.
Search for the desired performer and click edit.
Below you'll see a list of catalogues available on the site. Check the boxes for where you'd like the performer to appear.
Similarly, you can do this for events/venues by clicking their respective sections in the TicketPlatform Modules.
You can set a label for the flag in sitefinity. Go to the control "InteractiveTicketList" on the Ticket page (pages - sitemap) and enter something for "Featured Image Description."
You can also FTP into the server and replace the image of the flag with whatever you want, as long as it is the same size and format. You can find your flag icon at yourdomain/Images/Mark.png
If you need an FTP login for your PXS, file a ticket in our client login area.
Go to what content you want to link to your page - a button, text saying "click here," etc - and edit it. This will be a "Generic Content" control.
Highlight the content you want "clickable" and then click the "Inset a Link" icon - a picture of a globe and a chain link.
Here, you can put either the exact URL for the page, or select a page from within the site map.
5) scroll down to "head content" and change "title"
5) Edit the field for "Menu Label".
1) Backup your existing logo. Go to your site and right click on the logo and save it to your computer.
2) Be sure your new logo is the same size as the old. Right click on it and click properties and make sure it is the same size pixel for pixel.
3) Edit your template in sitefinity under Pages- Templates. Go to your logo, click edit. You can upload your new logo here. Do this on both the main template and ticket template, and on any other custom templates you may have.
1) Login to Sitefinity.
2) Go to Modules --> Ticket Platform --> Performers.
3) Search for the performer you would like to add/remove.
4) Once in the performer area, under "Performer Catalog Assignments: " check or uncheck the box next to "Top Nav Top Artist" and click "Update".
The GeoIP City Lite API that is released with the PXS Application is a free module and will provide the city associated with your IP address. You may inquire about a more accurate IP look up by purchasing the GeoIP City. Please contact your sales representative for further details.
This problem is likely due to caching. Your browser is storing information about the website, like pictures, locally on your computer. The website has changed, but your cache of the image is out of date. Usually your browser or DNS will recheck periodically for a new cache every few minutes.
If you'd like to see the changes instantly occur, you can toggle the page.
How to toggle a page:
1. Go, in sitefinity, to pages -> sitemap. Find the page you want to recache.
2. Go to the tab for "Properties"
3. Change the option for "Show in Navigation" to its opposite. (If yes, make no or vice versa).
4. Save Changes.
5. Change the "Show In Navigation" setting back to its original.
6. Save Changes.
The page will now be recached. Any image change you did should show accurately now.
If it is not a top priority, the page should automatically show the new picture in about ten minutes. Or, if you use another browser it will likely show the newest image.
This will cause your site to briefly not display any events, as it is updating from the network.
3) Watch as it updates. When it is done it will tell you.
It's quite simple, really!
1) Edit the page you want to add the codes to (Pages -> Sitemap)
2) Find an existing "Generic Content" control to add the code to, or drag one from the control panel to the right onto your page.
3) Edit the "Generic Content" control.
4) Switch the viewing mode to "HTML"
5) Paste the embedded code in this box.
6) Press done.
7) Publish changes to the page.
There are many tokens in the PXS which allow you to put unique content onto templated pages. You can put them in head content on any of the templated pages to generate a meta description or meta tags for every templated page (ie Performer or Event pages):
There are two types of pages where images can be, static (ie Sports or NFL) or dynamic/templated (ie performer/venue/event). Here are the ways to change the image alt tags on each type of page:
for static pages:
1) go to the page in "pages" 2) edit the page in question 3) edit the "generic content" where the image is 4) right click on the image go to properties 5) there is an option right thur for a performer page's image (venue and event and catalogue images are similar) 1) go to modules - ticketplatform 2) go to performers (or venue/event/catalogue) 3) search for said performer and edit the one you want 4) there is an image alt text field below the pic
UPLOADING YOUR DEFAULT IMAGE TO SITEFINITY 1. Go to the back-end (Sitefinity) and login with your username and password. 2. First, you'll need to choose an image which will need to be saved on your computer *where you can find it* that you want to upload as your default image. 3. Go to the top navigation and click on "Files", then go to the left-hand column under "Select a Folder"and click on the folder "Images". 4. At the top of the list, click on the button "Upload Files" 5. You'll now see a page with several fields and a "Select" button next to them. Go to the top field and click "Select", then find the image saved on your computer that you'd like to upload, highlight it, and click "Open". Once it appears in the field, click "Upload" at the bottom of the page. 6. You should be able to click on the "Images" folder scroll down and find the image you just uploaded. **Make sure to highlight the entire name of that picture and copy it. We will need to paste it in our URL later. Follow the next steps... UPLOADING THE DEFAULT IMAGE TO THE PERFORMER PAGES 7. Now go to "Pages" at the top navigation bar and click on it. 8. On the left-hand column under the title "Site Map", scroll down to the heading "PXS Templates" and click on the + sign next to it. 9. Under that drop down menu, find "Performer" and click on it. 10. Go to "Edit this Page" at the top of the page and click on it. 11. Now you should be able to edit this performer page. Drag your cursor over the area in the box titled"Context Image" and click on the word "Edit". 12.Find the heading that says "Display" and click on it. 13. Under the drop down menu, you will see the top line that says "Default Image URL". 14. In field next to "Default Image URL" type out: http://YOUR SITE NAME/images/PASTE THE NAME OF FILE (the one you uploaded that you copied before from the folder images under Files). Example: http://demo.ticketplatform.com/images/default.png (on your URL link, the "demo.ticketplatform.com" will be replaced with the name of your website.com, and the "default.png" will be replaced with the information you will paste from the image you uploaded. Do not delete any of the forward slashes (/) because they need to be there for the link to work.) 15. Once your URL is typed out corrently, click on the "I'm Done" button, and then click on the button that says "Publish" at the top of the page. Then check out your site from the front-end, and click on a few of the performers that you hadn't already uploaded a unique picture to...
Your default image should be there! Hooray!
