Codeless coming soon page [Codeless]

Jennifer Updated by Jennifer

This article will walk you through how to create a page on your website to showcase listings that will be hitting the market soon.

There are a few different workarounds to create a coming soon page. Our IDX integration doesn't show listings that are not yet active, so we recommend alternative ways to create pages of these listings. *Note this work around will also work for recent sales and open houses*

  1. Regular Pages
  2. Using a Blog Index page
How to create using Pages 

You can create a page with the default page template. From the customizer slide out click Create New > Page. Change the page template to default page template and add the relevant information there.

Here is a support article that describes creating pages.

When creating the page with your coming soon listings there are two layout options we would recommend.

Layout option 1

Create your page following the instructions on how to create a page above. Once you have selected the page template and given your page a title you will move onto the content editor.

In the content editor you will click on the image icon to upload your first photo. *note you can add multiple images for each coming soon listing if you would like to.

Once you’ve uploaded an image(s) for your listing underneath you’ll write a brief description of the listing. 

You’ll repeat this process uploading another image(s) for your next listing below the description of the listing above it and so on.

Layout option 2

Create your page following the instructions on how to create a page above. Once you have selected the page template and given your page a title you will move onto the content editor.

In the content editor you will first click on the create a table icon.

Once you have clicked on the create a table icon you’ll need to select how many columns and rows you would like to have on your table. For this example I am selecting two.

After creating the table you are able to add or remove columns and rows by using the table editing options that appear in the drop down menu. For example you can add a row by selecting row > insert row before. This will add a row above where your cursor is in the table.

You can also use the table editing bar that appears when you highlight the table to add, remove, or edit the columns and rows.

  1. Icon one allows you to edit the table properties.
  2. Icon two allows you to delete the entire table.
  3. Icon three allows you to add a row above where your cursor is located in the table.
  4. Icon four allows you to add a row below where your cursor is located in the table.
  5. Icon five allows you to remove the row your cursor is currently in.
  6. Icon six allows you to add a column to the left of where your cursor is located in the table.
  7. Icon seven allows you to add a column to the right of where your cursor is located in the table.
  8. Icon eight allows you to remove the column your cursor is currently in.

Now you can start adding your coming soon listings to these columns you have created. Place your cursor in the first column and click on the upload image icon.

Once you’ve uploaded an image you’ll want to add a description for the listing in the second column like in the image shown below.

You’ll repeat these steps in additional columns as you add your additional coming soon listings to the page.

How to create using the Blog Page Index:

To create a new blog post, in the customizer slide out click Create New > Blog Posts. 

For the blog post option you will want to choose one photo to use as the featured image. Then in the content section you can add more photos and descriptions to highlight certain areas of the home.

You can also create blog posts that will describe a “coming soon” listing. While all of your blog posts will show on the same blog index page you are able to add them to a category.

Note: You'll also need to make sure you create a page with a blog index template so all the blog posts will appear on the blog page.

If your theme has blogs on the featured listing page, then your most recent blog posts will be displayed there (so if you choose this method, your coming soon listings will appear there too - a great way to highlight them straight away).

You can also reference this support article about creating blog posts.
