> General Settings
The General Settings menu holds the following options:
Funnel Type – You can choose whether to create a sales funnel or a lead generation funnel or hybrid ones. Based on your choice here, the templates will be loaded.
Right now we only have templates for Sales funnels which includes Landing Page, Checkout Page, Order bump, Upsell and Downsell offers, and a Thank You Page.
But soon we will come up with integration to form plugins to allow lead generation as well.
Page Builder – Select your preferred Page builder here and then click on Sync templates so that when you create a funnel, you will be able to import templates for this builder only.
Once you have selected the required options, click on the Save button below and it should be effective.
The permalink tab will give you the option to either use the default permalink structure from WordPress, or you may use a custom slug structure from one of the three options there for your funnel steps.
For example, let’s say you selected the Funnel and Steps slug. Then below on the input fields, the text you enter will be part of the slug in the previewed structure.
So, if I use the Funnel base as Offer, and the Step base as OfferStep, the permalink structure will be https://www.yourwebsite.com/
Once you have made the required changes, click on the Save button and they will be effective.
