Adding Landing Page Template (3 posts)

    Ok, so I'm a noob and I'm trying to create a nice landing page for my site. I found a great template for a landing page here and my question is, is there a way to get this landing page theme onto wordpress? I know I can create a .php landing page, but I really like this template. If you download it you get all of the .js .css and .psd files as well as the images. Can I just upload all of these files into my cPanel(in the theme)? And if so, where exactly do I put them?

    Sorry if its a stupid question.

    All help is much appreciated.

    ok, an easy way without having to alter .php would be to create (or download) your landing page, calling it index.html or something similar, make the page as awesome as you like.

    Then from your host admin panel (who is your hosting provider?) setup domain mapping so that whenever someone types the url http://www.yoursite.com into the address they are 'landed' on your site, just make sure that there is an obvious "Click here to enter site" button on the landing page that links to your blog/site.

    This is the method I used for ages, and using a domain map not 301 re-direct helps the search engines out too.
    Hope that helps

    I'm sorry, you completely lost me, lol. My host is hostgator. Ideally, I would like the landing page to be something like this: landingpage.mysite.com

    I already created the subdomain in cPanel. I have the landing page in the directory. The theme I downloaded from here, I just uploaded up to my cPanel. I has a bunch of .psd .js .css files. Should I just dump all those files into the landing page file in the directory? Should I keep everything in the same file format? etc...

    P.S. I have no idea what you just said, you may as well be speaking Chinese, lol.
