Homepage 

(Click here to return to the Table of Contents)

When you're finished with the onboarding, the first thing you will see is the Homepage of your shower.

1. First, take note of where your shower page URL is. This is the custom path that you chose when you completed onboarding. This is the URL you can share with your guests to have them visit your shower page directly

 

2. Next, pay attention to the buttons you have on your page. The buttons within the the grey bar at the top of your page are buttons only you and your co-hosts will see when you are logged into your accounts.

  • The Theme button will allow you to change your theme and customize your page. We have a guide here that will walk you through the theme tab. 
  • The Admin button takes you into the backend of your shower, where you can customize your Shower Titlecreate, send and track invites, and add a co-Host.
  • Preview | Edit Page allows you to toggle between customizing your shower, and seeing how your guests will see your shower. Please view this article for further explanation!
  • Logout allows you to log out of your account.

 

3. Next, take a look at the buttons under the grey bar. Your guests will see these buttons.

  • Home will take your guests to the homepage of your shower if they're on a different page.
  • Gallery will take your guests to the gallery page of your shower.
  • Guest Book will take your guests to the guest book of your shower.
  • Gift Registry will take your guests to your provided gift registry information
  • Games will take your guests to the games page.
  • Events will take your guests to the events page.

 

4. Now, let us take a look at the Title of your homepage and first picture/video upload area.

  • This area is undoubtedly the first area that your guests see, so this is the best place to make the biggest impression!
    • For the Title, we suggest introducing who the shower is for. So you can include the parents-to-be names, or just focus on the little one(s) that are expected!

      Here are some examples:
      • It's Two Times the Love! You are Invited to our Twins' Online Baby Shower
      • Oh, baby! We're having a shower and you're invited!
      • Ryan and Grace are Having a Party Online!
      • Please Join Us in Welcoming the Arrival of Our New Little One/Princess/Prince.
      • Welcome to Brandon & Katherine's Virtual Baby Shower

  • Now that your Title is done, let us personalize the photo/video space more!
    • For the photo/video block, we suggest you upload a picture of the parent(s) to be or a sweet welcome video! We have a guide here on how to upload a video.

5. Now, the next most important part of your page is the Welcome block! This area is your chance to greet your guests and instruct them on what to do within the shower page. You can also inform your guests of the video call you have planned. It is always fun to add a little rhyme!

  • We have examples of some of our favorite Welcome blocks, feel free to use these and make them your own!
    • We're Seeing Double!
      Double the trouble, and double the joy. We are so grateful for this amazing blessing. Please take a look around our website, upload pictures/videos, sign our guest book, and play games! Our Zoom call is scheduled for 7/31 at 1 PM! More information on the events tab. We hope to see you there!

We will have prizes for the winners! We also have a Zoom call scheduled on October 10th, at 3 PM! More information on the events tab.

 

6. Next up on the Homepage is the Gallery! Feel free to come back to the gallery whenever you're ready to upload photos and videos to your website. We suggest you upload pictures of the parents to be, pictures of the nursery, any pictures of the baby, and any maternity shoot pictures! Guests love to see pictures, and especially if the shower is completely virtual, this can be your opportunity to show guests what has been going on through out the pregnancy! 

7. Now we can take a look at your Registry and Address information.

Gallery

(Click here to return to the Table of Contents)

Click on your Gallery button. This button will take you to your Gallery's homepage.

If you already uploaded pictures/videos here in the step above, then you should already see some uploaded. If you waited to upload pictures, then here is a quick guide on how to upload photos/videos.

Your guests are able to upload their own photos and videos to your gallery. So we suggest you make it fun and have your guests upload pictures of the parents-to-be that they have, or even well wish videos!

To add text to your Gallery, click on the Edit text... box within your gallery. From there, you can greet your guests and instruct them to upload to the gallery.


We have a few examples to help spark ideas.

  • Welcome to our gallery! We have many pictures of Abby and Josh through the years uploaded, as most of you know - they have been together for 10 years! High school sweethearts, and now they're having TWINS! Both Parents are super nervous (and SO excited), so please upload videos of you giving them advice on how to care for a new born! Feel free to also upload pictures that you have of Abby and Josh.

We thought it would be fun for you guys to upload photos of the mom and dad to be (not too embarrassing- but a bit embarrassing!). Once baby arrives of course we will flood with baby photos but for now, let's see the happy couple! Also please take some time out of your day to record a well wish message for our video section!
  • Chugging along! This train is moving and a baby is on board! Enjoy pictures of Emily all through out her pregnancy, watch her belly grow and see her sweet baby when he arrives! We will keep this gallery updated with pictures of Emily and Xavier, and sweet baby Miles once he makes an appearance.

Guest Book

(Click here to return to the Table of Contents)

You can get to your Guest Book in two different ways. You can either click on the Sign Guest Book button on your homepage under your title, or you can click the Guest Book button at the top of your shower page.

 

When you're on your Guest Book, the first suggest you take note of is your ability to toggle a text block on/off. To toggle that block on and off, simply toggle the switch titled Display Section. This text box will also not show if you do not have anything written in it. 


Like previous sections, you can certainly guide the conversation / what role your guests play in your Guest Book. You can also just leave this section blank if you want to let your guests choose their own route.

It is best to keep in mind that conversation starters and ice breakers are always a great way to get the ball rolling! 

  • Welcome to our Guest Book! Please leave your well wishes for Abby, Josh and the twins on the way. We would also love to hear any funny stories you have about Abby and Josh! 
  • Hi there, you've made it to our Guest Book! Please leave well wishes for baby Blue, and parents to enjoy together once the babe is old enough! We plan to add this website into a wonderful scrap book.
  • Welcome to Grace's Guest Book!
  • Allow us to introduce you to our Guest Book! Here, we would like to play a game with our guests. We have a gift card riding on the line of who can get as close as possible to guessing our baby's date of birth, time of birth, weight, length, hair color, and eye color. The closest person to guessing all correctly will receive a gift card! Feel free to also include a message for the parents-to-be with your baby bet!

Games

(Click here to return to the Table of Contents)

The games page allows your guests to play games during your shower, or on their own time. When guests play games, their scores are recorded so the hosts can hand out prizes (or kudos) if they wish! We have various articles here for our Games page.

For the Games page, you can instruct your guests on when they should play the game. Since they are quiz style games, you can ask your guests to play them on their own time; or you can also instruct them during the actual shower itself to play answer the quiz games on a timer - to add a bit more competition in! 

  • Welcome to the games page! Please feel free to play these games on your own time, by the time of our shower on September 19th, we will collect those with the highest score and they will win gift cards! We will also have more games to play during the Zoom call!

  • Hi there! Play some games, and have some fun! We'll have more games during our Zoom call as well. Thank you for joining us!
