Sharing URLs

It is possible to share create share links in Tito that link directly to certain tickets, public or secret, to pre-fill discount codes, and to pre-fill quantities.

Linking directly to a ticket

In Tickets, if you browse to a particular ticket, you will see that each ticket has a Public ticket link. This link links directly to the event homepage showing only that ticket.

The secret ticket link looks something like this:

https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg

This URL is composed of several parts:

  • https://ti.to (the Tito domain)
  • /ultimateconf (the account slug)
  • /2016 (the event slug)
  • /with (a shortcut to tell Tito that you only want to display certain tickets)
  • /gjdvhrugccg (the slug of the ticket you want to show)

You can take the slug of any of your tickets, whether public or secret, and use this technique to show only that ticket.

Showing multiple tickets

It is possible to show multiple tickets, by separating the slug with a comma.

For example, if you have two public links like this:

https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg and
https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/6smegyvnoa8

You can show both of these on the same page by joining the slugs with a comma:

https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg,6smegyvnoa8

This will show both tickets

Showing a discount code

You can append /discount/CODE to the end of any of these URLs to pre-fill a discount code. For example, if the discount code code is “FULL”, you can create a URL like this:

https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg/discount/FULL or
https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg,6smegyvnoa8/discount/FULL

Pre-filling quantities

You can pre-fill the quantities of any tickets by adding them to the URL.

Let’s say you want to pre-fill the quantity to “1” of ticket with slug of gjdvhrugccg, and you want to pre-fill 6smegyvnoa8 with “10”, your URL would look like this:

https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg,6smegyvnoa8?gjdvhrugccg=1&6smegyvnoa8=10

You can of course do this with the discount code pre-filled too:

https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg,6smegyvnoa8/discount/FULL?gjdvhrugccg=1&6smegyvnoa8=10

And this also works if you are only showing one ticket:

https://ti.to/ultimateconf/2016/with/gjdvhrugccg?gjdvhrugccg=10

(although by default, if you only show one ticket, the quantity will be pre-filled to “1”)

We use Open Graph markup to populate the preview that is used when sharing a Tito event page link on a social network such as Twitter or Facebook. Here are the various properties:

og:url
The Tito event page URL, e.g. https://ti.to/demo/homepage

og:title
The title of the link which we take as the event title, e.g. My Event.
You can change the default in Customize > Services > Social Sharing

og:description
The Short Description field set in Customize > Homepage, e.g. A demo event for fun.
You can change the default in Customize > Services > Social Sharing

og:image
The event logo set in Customize > Basics

You can generate a preview of your link using the following tools:

Facebook
Sharing Debugger: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/

Twitter
Card Validator: https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator

These tools can also be used to update cached versions of the data and image if the link has already been shared.

LinkedIn
LinkedIn will cache the URL details for a week and currently there is no way to invalidate it.
Instead you can fool the bots that be by adding a redundant parameter to the end of the URL so they think it’s a new website, e.g. change https://ti.to/demo/homepage to https://ti.to/demo/homepage?1
