Edit the Home Page Text in a Kintera Thon

The homepage is one of the most important pages for an event. It is important to be able to edit and customize the text, images and links that are to be displayed for this page.

As of the 9.4.1 Release of Blackbaud Sphere taking place on August 23, 2012, Sphere users that are on the Essentials Coding for their Thon Events will no longer see Header Text in Front Page Customization. This fields has been moved to the Event Text section of the Webinfo Checklist as part of the design upgrades to what was formally called Front Page Customization but is now called Website Design. This section outlines how to enter text into this fields once you have updated to the Essentials Coding. 
In order to customize or edit the text on the home page you must first find the homepage text in sphere. This can be done by following the below steps:
  1. Navigate to Communities > Special Events > Friends Asking Friends > Kintera Thon 
  2. Hover over the desired event and select Webinfo Checklist.
  3. Click Event Text.
  4. Scroll down to Home Page Text.
  5. Enter the desired information to be displayed on the home page of the event.
  6. Click preview to see changes made and a separate window will appear with the changes.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Navigate back to the Webinfo Checklist.
  9. Click the green "Publish This Event Now" button.
(Note: This is just the center section of the homepage and does not edit the logos, title, or navigation bars on the page.)
