Site content

Public content

In Options/Public content you can edit the lab-specific content on the Welcome (mainpage_welcome), the Rules (rules), the Privacy Policy (privacy_policy), the Imprint (impressum), the Contact page (contact) and the Temporarily Closed page (error_temporary_disabled) in the public area, as well as the Welcome page in the experimenter area (admin_mainpage). The overview page lists the content name and the content itself in the installed languages. Following the 'edit' links you may change the content. Note, that you are allowed to use HTML tags to format the content.

Email templates

The Options/Email templates page allows you to edit the texts for all templates for emails sent by the system, including the default email text for experiment invitations. You are asked to provide the template texts for all languages installed.

When you access Options/Email templates, you will see a list of all email texts in all installed languages. To change a text, follow the respective Edit link on the right. In the texts you may use some variables explained below. All variables are enclosed by '#'.

In all emails to participants, you may use the value of their respective participant form fields (see section Participant profile form). To do so, enclose the mysql_column_name of that field with '#' (e.g. #fname#, #lname#, #field_of_studies#).
