Your website settings

Your settings section is where you can decide your URL segment, add a short segment if needed and add a logo. (The URL segment is the name of your club - i.e. clubspark.lta.org.uk/TheWimbledonClub)

To change your venue's URL segment, just change the text in the URL segment field. Once saved, this will be updated.

Your venue's name will appear along side your club logo unless you mark the 'hide venue name' box. Venues with a logo which is predominantly the venue's name, may want to mark this box. If you decide to keep your venue's name along side your logo, then the text will appear in your chosen primary colour. 

When choosing your header style, you can pick between having a white background with your chosen primary colour as your text or having your chosen primary colour as your background with white text. 
To view how it looks, apply your chosen style and then view it in your booking sheet.

Logo URL Override

If your venue operates a separate website that links to the ClubSpark pages, then 'logo URL override' is a convenient way to direct your users back to your venue website after their ClubSpark transactions have completed.

By default, your venue's logo and text will automatically navigate to the ClubSpark homepage.

To change the navigation to an external website, follow these steps:

In the admin area, select 'Website', then select 'Settings'. In the settings section, next to 'Logo URL override' type in your external website's URL.

Select 'Save page changes' and the changes will be updated. Test the link by clicking on your venue's logo within ClubSpark to ensure the user is directed to the correct URL address. 

Already Have Your Own Website and/or Domain Name? 

If you already have your own domain name, then it's just a matter of asking the people who are hosting your domain to 'point' it to your ClubSpark URL. 

Remember social accounts such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram can be added in the Profile section of your ClubSpark account - which will then appear in your websites footer.

Search engine optimisation (SEO)

The SEO page title and meta description are what appears on a search engine when a search is entered.

To update your SEO settings, you can do this for each of your pages in your website manager.
