This guide will walk you through different ways to personalize the look and feel of your community. If you have a separate website, this should inspire ways to make your community look more familiar.
General Page: Navigate to Settings → General. This page gives you control over your presence and some of the most basic settings. Here you can give your community a name, set the URL, control visibility, set brand colors, and choose some default spaces.
Emojis: When editing or creating a space, click on the hashtag icon next to the space name to pop open the emoji picker and select one that fits the mood of the space. Have fun with it!
Custom Domains: On Pro and Enterprise plans, you can set up a custom domain that will re-direct to your community. Click here for more information.
Onboarding: Send customized onboarding messages, pop-ups, and invitations! These personalized messages can welcome members, provide additional resources, and encourage engagement. Click here for more information.
Links: You also have the ability to create custom external links right from your community sidebar. Point these to helpful documents, or other resources that may be helpful to members.
Pinned Topics: Pin topics to the top of a space, or within the sidebar to call out important information for your members. For more information about pinning topics, click here.
Code Snippets: This feature gives you the ability to add custom code snippets inside the <head> tag on your community. Add services like Google Analytics and your Facebook Pixel for tracking purposes, or even do some custom styling with CSS.
Member Tags: Create fun member tags! These can be visible to all members, or only admins. They're a great way to know who's who. For more information about setting up member tags, click here.
Embed: Embed the comments section of an accessible Circle topic to external websites, blog posts, course lectures, etc. Embedding your Circle comments lets your members carry over their Circle identity to other external interaction points in your stack — such as blog posts and course lectures — and amplifies community engagement.
Here's an example of comments from a Circle topic embedded below a lecture inside the Teachable platform:
Zapier: Circle is available on Zapier, allowing you to connect Circle to thousands of other apps! This can take your community to the next level by building automatic workflows that integrate with other systems you already have in place. An example would be triggering a member invite after a specific event. Click here to learn more!
