A widget is an integration code that you manually paste into your website or CMS.
A mini site will automatically generate an independent website with a single and automatically generated URL.
It’s located on a blank area of the page of your website that will host your campaign. If this area is 618px width for example, than you’ll need to create a 618px width campaign in Qualifio.
You can compare a Qualifio Widget to a Youtube Embedded Code.
Qualifio automatically generates a new URL for each campaign published on a mini-site. The default domain name is player.qualifio.com. Once your website is correctly defined in Qualifio, you don’t have to do anything out of Qualifio to publish your campaigns – sounds cool isn’t it?
You can, of course, change the domain name in order to avoid that your participants play on a player.qualifio.com instead of yourbrand.com. Check this article
To create a mini-site :
1. You can either use our minisite editor and create your minisite entirely in Qualifio Manager :
2. Or you can import your own minisite in Qualifio Manager:
This second option requires an initial short setup :
You will have to create a reference page on your website (call this a template, a container or a wrapper) with, for example, a header, footer, sidebar and host it on your domain. In this HTML page, you’ll set up a blank area where your Qualifio campaigns will be located. In order to do this – just write a variable in this space (ex: $$content$$).
After that, you will need to do 2 things in Qualifio :
- Add this website by copy-pasting your URL in Settings/Websites management/Your Website/Mini-site, in the field 'Desktop'
- Copy-paste the variable in the variable field.
If your campaigns need to have a totally different look and feel than your corporate website:
you just have to create a new website with your desired look and feel and a new blank area on it.
Just repeat the steps from the previous point in Qualifio Manager: Add the website in the manager, edit that website: fill the URL in the minisite tab and add the variable.
