Importing & exporting custom landing pages saves you time and makes your job easier, when you are building one or more websites.
It allows you to customize a landing page template and reuse it, whenever you want, without having to do the customization part all over again. Here is how to do that:
Customizing a Landing Page
Before being able to export/import a landing page, you will have to choose one, customize it and save it. Click on the “Change Template” option, which is the second one from the right sidebar.
A pop-up window will open with a library of templates that you can choose from. Then, you will be asked to choose if you want to build a normal page, or a Landing Page. Click on the "Pre-built Landing Page" option:
Select a template that best suits your purposes and start customizing it to your liking. You are welcome to change the buttons, the colors, the texts; whatever you need to personalize the template.
When you have finished and you are satisfied with the page, you should save it.
Now, in order to re-use this customized landing page, you need to export it and then, import it.
Exporting a Landing Page
First, open the "Settings" menu by clicking on the gear icon from the right sidebar:
Then, click on the “Export Landing Page” option from the “Settings” menu:
This will open a pop-up window. Here, you will have to give a name to your template in the “Template Name” field. Then, you can also add a picture to it, as a thumbnail.
This is useful because if you save more landing pages, it will be easier to recognize which one you want to use again by looking at the thumbnails too.
In order to add a thumbnail picture, click on the “Choose Image” button and select an image from the media library.
Then, you have to download the file, by clicking on the “Download File” button, to finish the exporting process. This will download a .zip file that you will have to import to be able to use again:
Importing a landing page
Access the “Settings” menu by clicking on the gear icon from the right sidebar again:
Then, you can easily import landing pages by clicking on the last option from the menu, the “Import Landing Page” option:
A warning message will appear to notify you that importing a landing page will overwrite the contents of your current page.
After you confirm that this is what you wish to do, a pop-up window will open, with the “Upload Files” option. Here you have to upload the .zip file that you have previously downloaded.
After you have done that, click on the blue “Import” button from the bottom right corner of the pop-up and in a few seconds, your page will be changed to the customized landing page that you have imported:
Once you have imported a landing page, you will be able to use it whenever you want, without having to upload it again, because it will be among your saved landing pages.
If you click on the “Change Template” option (second one from the right sidebar) and then, select “Saved Landing Pages”, you will see all of the landing pages that you have previously imported and saved.
