The Pretty Creative by Pretty Darn Cute Design comes with a landing page template, which is perfect for someone looking to add a lead generation or sales page to their site. It’s sometimes called a Sales Page, or a “Squeeze Page”. It looks somewhat different to the rest of the theme, as it does not include a menu, sidebar, or footer. It is essentially a “blank canvas” for you to use as you wish.
The demo for the Pretty Creative theme uses a Gravity Form on the page; this is just one use for the landing page template.
As part of providing theme support, I get asked a lot of questions that are outside the scope of theme support* Most recently, I was asked how to update the Landing Page template to remove the site header.
In order to do this, we will first need to update your landing_page.php file, to remove the header markup. Add this to your file:
If you don’t have access to your WordPress dashboard (some hosting companies disable this functionality), you will need to access your landing_page.php file via cPanel or FTP to make the update.
As a reminder: Any time you are making adjustments to a PHP file, you will want to have a fresh file available to upload to your site via cPanel or FTP – a misstep when updating your functions.php file will result in crashing your site; if you do that, you will need to upload a new functions.php file via cPanel or FTP (it cannot be fixed via your WordPress dashboard.
* Why is this outside the scope of theme support you may ask? Theme support for any of the Pretty Darn Cute Design themes is limited to setting up the site to look and function like the demo; making any further adjustments to the look and functionality of the theme is customization.
Have you purchased the Pretty Creative theme, but not yet installed it? Did you know I offer a theme setup service? I can have your site set up to match the theme’s demo settings in under 24 hours. You can learn more here: (24 hour theme setup)
