Website Overview

The central module in FishPulse is the Website module, which can be used to edit any static HTML content in a straightforward, WYSIWYG fashion. FishPulse includes a selection of high-quality templates that can be used to establish a starting foundation for your website.

After creating an account, you will be presented with the option to select a template for your site. You can switch to a different template any time from the website module by going to Website Settings -> Change Template.

Selecting a template will deploy a copy of the template to your website, which you can then edit to your liking. The deployment process also integrates your website with the analytics and leads modules. The Analytics module will give you an insight into what pages were viewed by website users, and how long they were viewed for, in addition to other important user data such as geographic location and device information. The Leads module tracks users as they interact with your business, consolidating form submissions in your website and email communications to individual leads.

Registering a Domain

On initial registration, accounts are assigned a unique fishpulse.com subdomain and email address based on their username. These identifiers are meant to be temporary, so that new users can get acquainted with the email and website features of the platform. Once you are ready to establish a professional profile, you will want to register a domain name by going to the Domain Name module. Registering a domain name will automatically link your website to your domain name, and grant you access to the Email Accounts module, where you will be able to create as many email accounts as you need for your domain.

Custom Websites

You can also upload your own template and/or custom website using the Files module. If you do, follow the guidelines below to ensure full compatibility with the platform:

General Guidelines:
  • HTML files should end in .html only. Dynamically generated code using PHP or JS will not display in the website editor.
  • Website editor will automatically set HTML5 as the doctype when saving files. For best results, ensure your custom website is HTML5 compliant.
  • Absolute paths in your links and resources that begin with '/' will not work properly. Absolute paths should begin with https:// whenever posible.
  • There can only be one instance of a <header> and <footer> tag per page. When saving a page, the editor automatically syncs the inner content of these tags across all pages.
  • Website pages should contain the following code before the closing </body> tag:
  • <script src="https://app.fishpulse.com/rsc/js/form.js"></script> <!--Processes submitted forms. Necessary for pages containing <form> tags.-->
    <script src="https://app.fishpulse.com/rsc/js/analytics.js"></script> <!--Tracks user interaction with your website.-->
    <input type="hidden" id="pk" value="your public key"> <!--Public key used by the form and analytics scripts. Place your public key, available under My Settings -> Keys, inside the value attribute.-->

Form Guidelines:
  • At the moment, forms only support the following fields:
  • <input type="text" name="name" ...>
    <input type="text" name="email" ...> <!--Required in all forms-->
    <input type="text" name="phone" ...>
    <input type="text" name="subject" ...>
    <textarea name="message" ...></textarea>
  • Form tags should contain a name attribute defining the name of the form.
  • Submit button should include the class "submit". For compatibility with the editor, it should be of type="button" instead of type="submit".
