my site was hacked and Bluehost ran a restore; however, they did not restore my landing page, which took me hours to build. This is the right age – file:///C:/Users/garyc/OneDrive/Documents/My%20WebSites/AjijicToday.com/responsive-app-landing-page/app-landing-page.html (I don’t know if this local file can be viewed. The same file does not show up when I open it from the server)
My problem is I can’t seem to find a way for the plugin to recognize this as a landing page. I’ve tried everything! I copied the .html file to every server directory I could find; but it never comes up as a landing page in the plugin.
Appreciate any help. Not crazy about rebuilding this all over again when it exists.April 10, 2018 at 1:26 pm #132634
Well, some progress. I’ve played with the code for the page and this is what I’m getting – http://ajijictoday.com/landing-page-2/
Although the content is fine, it appears that I’m not getting any of the landing page CSS. Tried to find the CSS link files; but can’t find them anywhere.
Appreciate any help.April 10, 2018 at 4:17 pm #132636
responsive-app-landing-page/app-landing-page.htm is an HTML based landing page, so it’s not compatible with our Landing Pages plugin.
It’s possible that you did have someone convert it to a landing page template that is compatible with our landing pages plugin.
http://ajijictoday.com/landing-page-2/ does not not seem to be a normal landing page URL structure. Are you using a plugin we provide to remove the /go/ portion of the URL associated with landing pages created by our tool? For example: http://demo.inboundnow.com/go/animated-coming-soon-1/
It does look like you are calling landing-page-2/ directory as if it’s files are manually uploaded into your WordPress directory. But if that’s the case it also looks like that directory is missing it’s CSS and JS asset files: https://www.screencast.com/t/3ABbrCi2Fbya
Overall, it doesn’t look that this landing page, or the method used to create it, belong to the Inbound Pro/Landing Pages plugin suite. I guess from here I’ll wait on more information from my side. Where did you procure the Landing Page template you are using?
Thanks for the additional information.

Yes, the original landing page was created using your plugin. After the restore failed to restore the landing pages I found the original file in a backup, which I am attaching. When I open the file in Chrome from Explorer it loads perfectly. My problem is that I can’t out figure where or how to put it for the plugin to recognize it as a landing page.
Appreciate your help.April 11, 2018 at 9:09 am #132639
Well, the upload of the file failed so I don’t know how to send you the landing page. ??April 11, 2018 at 9:30 am #132640
More issue. I edited the CTA to change the link to this –
http://www.ajijictoday.com/responsive-app-landing-page/app-landing-page.html which is the correct landing page URL.
When I enter that URL in Chrome it comes up perfectly; however, the link does not change when editing the CTA. I checked that the URL was showing in the button link; however, when I preview the CTA it shows a link to inboundpro. ??April 11, 2018 at 9:42 am #132641
When I load the CTA and use the Inspector and change the link it works; but I don’t know how to edit the HTML for the CTA to accept that link.April 11, 2018 at 3:54 pm #132644
Okay so I think I understand a little better. You or someone built a landing page using Landing Pages plugin and then a backup was saved as an HTML file.
Unfortunately saving a landing page created by our tool as HTML won’t make it importable again. It does save the design, but that design can’t be imported without manually creating the landing page again using the same template.
I also checked in on your homepage and looked at your CTA and it is linking to your landing page html file so I believe you figured this out? I tested the button and did arrive at the HTML landing page: https://content.screencast.com/users/adbox/folders/Jing/media/4c370642-9d14-4445-8d69-5c3bc12c3bbc/2018-04-11_1752.pngApril 11, 2018 at 4:20 pm #132646
Still confused. The other file I noticed in the backup folder was a sample I didn’t create. That’s why I thought there must be a way to have the plugin recognize the file as a landing page.
The only issue then is why the CTA will not accept the link? It’s not critical at this point that I can’t edit the landing page; but I would like the CTAs to go to the HTML landing page.
I only edited one CTA to update the link and it shows correctly, but when I view the CTA the link changes to an inboundpro link. I don’t know why.April 12, 2018 at 1:56 pm #132651
Hi I agree it’s a little confusing. It’s safe to say though that a landing page powered by our tool can’t be directly imported from an HTML file, so the HTML file you have on record isn’t useful as an import tool. But you can use it as a guide to recreate a landing page through our tool to the best of your/the template’s ability.
About the CTA link. It does link to your HTML page. I tried it. What you are seeing is the tracked link format that all CTAs change links into to enable tracking: http://ajijictoday.com/inbound/ino9luw1v37April 12, 2018 at 2:43 pm #132652
As I said I’m not concerned about being able to edit this page in the Landing Page plugin. I’m only interested in not losing all the work I put into it. I went into the CTA and changed the link to the HTML page; but it reverts to the default inboundpro link. I changed it using Inspector and it works fine; but I have no idea why the CTA plugin won’t change it.
Appreciate all your help.April 12, 2018 at 5:34 pm #132655
About the CTA link. Will you past the link that it’s being change to here for testing?April 13, 2018 at 6:48 am #132657April 13, 2018 at 3:00 pm #132660
Hi yes, that’s the destination location/link. What link is that link above being converted into? ” but it reverts to the default inboundpro link. ” <--- the inboundpro link that you are seeing.April 13, 2018 at 3:32 pm #132662
The proper URL gets saved in the CTA but then reverts back to the default when the CTA loads.
