An Intro page, also called a splash, landing, or squeeze page, is the first page your website fans see when they visit. An intro page doesn't include your website template or header image. It also doesn’t display your website navigation menu, unless you select the option to add it.

This help article includes the following:

  • Adding an Intro page
  • Intro page options
  • Removing the ‘Enter Site Link’
  • Removing an Intro page

Note: An intro page is great for displaying a temporary message, but shouldn’t be used long-term. Use it for announcements about your new album release or an upcoming tour, then take it down after about two weeks. Beyond that, it becomes an extra step for fans to access your website, and this can be annoying to click through each time they visit. Fans should be encouraged to come back, so make the homepage the focus of your website design rather than the intro page.

Adding an Intro page

  1. From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’
  2. Select ‘Add a page’
  3. Click ‘More page types’
  4. Select ‘Intro page’
  5. Name your page in the ‘Title’ field (defaults to the page type if unchanged)
  6. Adjust your page options (See details below)
  7. Click ‘Create my page’

Note: The Intro page does not display the navigation menu.

Intro page options

The Intro page cannot be moved. It is automatically the first page visitors see when loading your website, until you delete or unpublish it.

The Intro page background color and content font color can be changed through the ‘Edit Theme’ tab. First, open the intro page in the ‘Edit Content’ tab, then click the ‘Edit Theme’ tab - the background colour setting will be listed on the left.

Page settings:

  • Title: The name of the page.
  • Visibility:

    • Published: Page is visible the public.
    • Not Published: Page is not visible to the public.

      Note: Although the page will not display in your site’s navigation menu, it can still appear in search engine results. Protect your unpublished page with a password to make the content inaccessible.

  • Show navigation menu:

    • Yes: Shows the navigation menu at the top or side of your website (depending on your template design).
    • No: Hides the navigation menu so it will not display on this page.

Advanced Settings

  • Access restrictions:
    • Everybody: Default that allows anyone to visit this page.
    • Site members only: Requires a visitor to register and log in to access the page.

      Note: A visitor can also register as a site member through the Blog, Forum, Guestbook, and Music features if those requirements are enabled within those feature settings.

    • Anyone with a password: Select this option to protect the page with a password.

  • SEO options:
    • Automatically generated from your page content: Search engines will extract keywords and phrases directly from the content of the page.
    • Custom:
      • Page description: Search engines may use this custom description in search engine results.
      • Page name: Search engines may use this name in search engine results instead of the page title you see in the navigation menu.
  • Redirect path: Add a 301 redirect to point page URLs from an old website.
