DISCLAIMER: Display is a new Product from iPaper being continuously developed. If there is any discrepancy between this article and your experience, please let us know.
You've spent time connecting the feed, setting up the theme, made the Display look amazing inside of the Editor.
Well let's not let that hard work go to waste - let's go live!
Embedding the Display script
Common for all your Displays is, they need the Display Script to be running on your website.
There are essentially two ways to put the Display script onto your website:
- Insert it into <body> section of your websites HTML
- Insert it via Google Tag Manager ***
*** Google Tag Manager scripts are blocked by Ad-blockers installed in browsers.
As such, inserting the Display script via GTM will cause your Display to not be seen by anyone using an Ad-blocker.
You can find the display script from the Display overview:
This simply needs to be pasted in the <body> section of your website.
Or if you wish to manage it from Google Tag Manager, you can simply insert it as a Custom HTML tag:
Disclamer: if you use Google Tag Manager, many visitors will not see your Display, as the tag will be blocked by Ad Blockers.
Now your page is ready to show Displays.
Next step is to publish your Displays on their respective pages.
Publishing your Display
Go to Displays, and click the cogwheel next to the Display you wish to publish:
You can either have direct URL to pages or use Wildcard URLs such as www.ipaper.io/*
There might also be URLs you do not want your Display appearing on, for example a checkout page.
From the top, you can open the Blacklist, and add any URLs you want excluded:
Once you've sorted what URL you want your Displays on you can set the publishing status as:
- Draft - only exists within iPaper for you to get ready for publishing
- Published - is live on your website
- Scheduled - will go live on a date and time of your choosing.
Note that it can take a few minutes for a Display to appear on your website, after setting it to Published.
Scheduling is a great tool for when you want to be ahead of time on your work! For example a holiday sale or Black Friday coming up, get to work ahead of time, so you can simply set it to publish on the right time, so when it comes.
