In order to use your Blackbaud Altru Ticket and Membership programs in the XTrulink Online Sales Portal, these programs must first be activated in XTrulink. See this article for more information.
You can view or make changes to your XTrulink Online Sales Portal settings from the Portal option under Cloud Setup in your Dashboard. The main settings for the XTrulink Online Sales Portal are split into four categories, listed in the left sidebar.
The Theme settings determine the active status, look and branding of your online portal. The URL displayed in the Theme settings is the address where the portal will be available when active.
Select this checkbox only when your settings are complete and you are ready to go live with your online sales portal.
Portal Settings Status
The Portal Settings Status tells you the status of your draft settings and allows you to sync them with your live site. As you save changes to your online portal settings, the changes are saved as a draft and will not immediately be live. You can preview your draft changes by clicking the preview link. The preview link will not be available until you have given your site a name. When you are happy with your site, you can click the Sync Draft to Live button to push your draft changes to your live site.
The Site Name will display in the browser tab and footer area of your online portal. This should be the name of your organization.
The Link Back is a way for the online portal to link back to your main site. If you have a page setup that links to the online sales portal, you can use that page address as the link back URL.
Allowed URI for iFrame Embedding
By default, the online sales portal cannot be embedded on another page. You may enter your domain here (e.g., https://mydomain.com) to enable the online sales portal to be embedded via an iframe on your own domain. The iframe will only work on this single domain.
If you have set an Allowed URI, then you can use the Embed Code to embed an iframe of the online sales portal on your own website. For more information on how to embed or customize an iframe on your website, please consult your IT department or website admin.
