Adding Do Some Good Widgets to a Forge Website in 3 Easy Steps
STEP 1: Update the layout of your page
Your website design and layout is always up to you. Decide where you want to place each of your Do Some Good widgets, and use the layout tools available in Forge to frame the content layout structure you want.
TIP: If you are embedding the news feed (Flowing Feed, 2 column), you may not need to use any design/layout element in Forge. However, if you want to put 2 Do Some Good widgets side by side (e.g. testimonials and supported organizations), you may choose to first drag in Forge's grid layout or columns widgets first, set them to 2 columns and 1 row and then drag in multiple Do Some Good widgets to place them side by side.
STEP 2: Configure your widgets on Do Some Good
On Do Some Good, head to your Management area and use the navigation on the left to go to the "Widgets" page. If you use an external service to build your website, you may need to invite them to become an administrator on the Do Some Good platform (or provide them with widget code).
Use the tabs to navigate to the different types of widgets you can embed. Customize the widget using the configurations (e.g. shape and size), preview the design and then copy the code. Specific details on Do Some Good widgets are below.
STEP 3: Add the Do Some Good widget to a content area
Look for the ‘Do Some Good Widget’ in your Experience Catalog within your Editorials Portal, then drag and drop the widget into the desired content area. Try just search "Do" or "Do Some" and if you can not find the Do Some Good widget, you will need to contact your implementation specialist at Central 1 to request access.
All you have to do now is paste the widget code you copied from your Do Some Good management area into the 'DSG Code' setting field of your Forge widget.
NOTE: Keep in mind that the Do Some Good widgets are responsive, so if you paste the code in and the preview in Forge looks different than the preview you just viewed in your Do Some Good management area, it is simply because of the space available in your window. If you collapse your right Tools area in Forge or view it in full screen, it will appear as it is supposed to and change sizes as your screen becomes smaller to be responsive with all screen sizes (including tablets and mobile).
