Creating a Catalog Page

A Catalog page is a specific page designed to show off your Auction Catalog online. In order to use the Catalog page to its fullest extent, you should first have created your Catalog, and filled in as much information as possible in your Packages (including description and images). From there, you can easily create the Catalog page by going into your Manage Project Website, adding a Catalog Page from the drop down menu, and filling in the available fields. Below is a step by step walkthrough of adding a Catalog page.

  1. From the Project Home, select Manage Project Website under the Project Website header.
  2. Using the drop down titled Add a Page, and select a Catalog page.
  3. Click the Add button.

Catalog Page Settings:

  1. Choose which Catalog to Display from the drop down menu. The catalog must have already been created. See Creating a Catalog for more information.
  2. Fill in the Catalog Page Text. This is commonly used to introduce your Catalog, and provide any disclaimers about the catalog.
  3. Determine how you Group Packages, either by Class or Section.
    • If sorting by Section, additional options include Alphabetically or by Lowest Package Number.

  4. Determine how you will Sort your Catalog.
    • Package Number – Sorts the catalog by the Package’s Number in Greater Giving Online.
    • Package Name – Sorts the catalog alphabetically by Package Name.
    • Package Value – Sorts the catalog by the value of each Package.

Information to Show on Catalog Page:

  1. Determine Info to Show on Catalog page by making check boxes. This is what is present when viewing the Catalog overview on the webpage.
    • Tip: Use our Clean HTML feature to ensure all of your Packages are using the same font and style.

    • Note: When Package Detail Information is selected, the Package Name and Image on the webpage become a hyperlink.
  3. Click Save to save your work and be taken back to Manage Project Website.
