Tutorial

Create a splash page (Coming Soon or Landing Page) to Display Before My Site Goes Live

You would have to create the html page yourself (or have it created). If you want to collect email addresses, you would include an opt-in box from what ever autoresponder service you are using.

The steps are then:

1) Name that file index.html

2) FTP into your site's main folder (usually /wwwroot or something similar)

3) Copy that index.html to that folder

4) Delete the index.cfm file that is in the /wwwroot folder while you are in there

5) Login to your site by going to yoursitename.com/members/login.cfm

6) In the control panel, choose "Edit Site Descriptions"

Edit Site Descriptions



7) In the "Portal Page Address" box, change it from index.html to anything like comingsoon.html

Create a splash page (Coming Soon or Landing Page) to Display Before My Site Goes Live



That last step tells your site to NOT write over the index.html file that you just put in place.

When you are ready to remove the page see this article:
