A splash page is a special landing page you can create for your website that visitors will see before they reach your storefront. For example, if you maintain a blog and an online store on separate websites, your splash page can contain links to both and visitors can choose which one they want to visit.
A splash page generally consists of a static HTML page displaying some form of text, images, logos, or basic information about the site with a link to your storefront and/or other websites.
Adding a Splash Page
After you've created your splash page using an HTML editor like Adobe Dreamweaver, you can integrate it with your store in a few steps:
- Log in to your Admin Area and go to Design > File Editor.
- Click the default.htm link in the Shortcuts table.
- Copy and paste the HTML from the splash page into the default.htm file.
- Click Save.
Once this is complete, anyone who visits your store's URL will land on the splash page instead of your storefront.
Removing a Splash Page
To remove a splash page:
- Go to Design > File Editor.
- Remove all content from the default.htm file.
- Click Save.
If the splash page is configured to display any images, these images will need to be uploaded to your store via FTP or linked to from an external, online source in the splash page's HTML code. Image files can be uploaded to any directory in the /v/vspfiles/ directory in your FTP account.
