With the CTA Feature of contentfry you can add a Call to Action Field to any post on your social wall whether it is a post by someone else or one of your own posts. That's how you do it:

  1. In your Dashboard choose the post you would like to have a CTA Field. Then click on the more option icon (…) and select Call to Action.

2. Then select "Call to action" in the drop down menu.

3. A popup has now opened. You can add the following information to your CTA.

A) Titel. The Title will show above your description (B) on your Display.

B) Description. You can add a description of max. 500 Characters to your CTA field.

C) Button. Add here the Text that you would like to show on your CTA-Button, e.g. "Learn more" or "Book now".

D) Link. Insert the URL of the site you want your users to land.

Please Note: Some Displays designs may only show a Button and the corresponding Link (C+D). If you would like to add a Titel (A) and a Description (B) to your CTA, make sure you choose a display that includes those two fields in the design.

4. Press update after adding the information you would like to show on your CTA Field.

5. After pressing update the CTA Field is saved to the selected post. Please note that this is only the dashboard view of your CTA and not how it will look on your Social Wall.

6. To style your CTA Field, navigate to your Displays in the menu on the left side and chose the Display you want to use (A). In the Box section of the Style Editor you will find a CTA layer and CTA button (B). You can now edit and style your CTA Field (C).
