There are several reasons why you might want to replace your school's default landing page with a new, or a temporary one.
Perhaps you are still working on your school and you are not ready yet to welcome your first learners. Wouldn't it be nice if you could show an "under construction" page? Or you are about to launch and want to show a "coming soon" page; you can even add a countdown timer to get your users all fired up or a "pre-launch" zone to have users subscribe in order to get notified for your launch. You might even want to create a special landing page for a special occasion such as a Black Friday promotion or the launch of a new course.
LearnWorlds makes it very easy to "hide" your current landing page and replace it with a temporary one. Here is the process:
1 From your Admin menu navigate to "Site Builder" and click on "Edit School Site".
2 Click on the pages drop-down menu and click on "Manage All pages":
3 You will notice that there are different types of pages. Currently, your home page has the /pages/home slug.
4 You can duplicate your home page by clicking on "Clone Page":
5 Once the page is duplicated, click on "Site" - "Site Navigation":
6 On the window that appears make sure to click "Select a page" and choose the page you wish from the drop-down menu. Once you are done, click on "Apply"
You have now chosen a different Landing page for your school!
Alternatively, if you do not wish to clone a page but choose one of your pages, you can navigate to "Site Builder" and click on "Navigation". There you can follow the instructions on Step 6 and choose a temporary Landing page, from your already created pages.
In case you want to make sure that there will be no sign-ups in your school you can navigate to "Site Builder" -"Sign in/up"
In the field "Sign-up process" just select "No one can sign up. I will add my users manually.".
In this way, no one will have access to your school and they will see only the "prelaunch" landing page you have created and you will have all the time you want to prepare your school.
Once you want to revert back to your previous Home page, simply follow the same process as shown above and choose the default home page in your Site Navigation.
Kindly know that in case you remove the top bar too (and the sign-up button on it) you will have to add this string at the end of your URL /?msg=not-logged-in so you will need to follow this link yourschool.learnworlds.com/?msg=not-logged-in or yourschool.getlearnworlds.com/?msg=not-logged-in or www.yourschool.com/?msg=not-logged-in or www.yourschool.com/?msg=not-logged-in (in case you have a custom domain) in order to log in to your school (kindly replace "yourschool" with the name of your school).
