    About ONTRApages

    ONTRApages are beautiful, responsive Landing Pages you can create either from scratch or using an impressive library of professionally designed templates. The easy to use ONTRApages interface features an innovative click-to-select editor in which you stack and customize pre-built Blocks of content. You can rename and reuse Blocks you have customized over and over again.

    ONTRApages are available in ONTRApages Free, ONTRApages Premium, and ONTRAPORT Basic, Pro and Team accounts. Some features on this page are available only to certain accounts, as noted in parenthesis after the feature name.

     

     

    Quick Start

    Want to jump right in and create an ONTRApage in your ONTRAPORT account? Make sure you are logged in on another tab in this browser and click this link: Create an ONTRApage Landing Page.

    This opens an ONTRAPORT Project within your account. ONTRAPORT Projects are step-by-step in-app instructions with a checklist to track your progress. You can stop and resume the Project at any time.

    Introduction to the Pages Collection

    The Pages Collection lists all the pages created in your account. Just like the Contacts Collection, you can click the item to open it for editing, select one or more items for Actions that appear in the Action Bar, create Groups and apply Group Actions to all items selected in the Group. 

    The Group Quick Selection Icon is positioned on the left in all Collections and allows you to quickly select all items in the Group, all the items on the page, or to deselect all the selected items with one click.

    Along the top is the Group Dropdown, where you can create a new Group or select one you have previously created. The Edit Group button allows you to edit the criteria for the selected Group. The Actions button will show the actions available for the selected items, with the Action Bar showing at the top of the screen. Note that Actions that cannot be taken because no item is selected, or because the action is not available for that item, are presented in a lighter, faded color. The New Landing Pagebutton will allow you to create a new Landing Page.

    At the right top are three more tools for the Collection. You can search for data in any of the columns displayed in columns in the Collection, click the Pin icon to add the Collection page to the Pinned Items page, and add columns to the Collection listing.

    The Pinned Items page is accessed by clicking the Pin Icon in the main navigation bar when it is visible. The page will show all the pinned items, allowing you to jump to that page with one click.

    The Add Column button displays all the available columns allowing you to select what to show in the Collection. Here are some of the columns available and what they are:

    Pages Collection

    • Name (what you named the page)
    • Domain (where the page is hosted)
    • Visits (unique visits to the page)
    • Type (Legacy Landing Page, Legacy Code Mode Page, ONTRApage, etc.)
    • Conversions (number of unique visitors that submitted an opt in or order form)
    • Date Created (added Nov. 7, 2017; will show a date if the page was created after that date)
    • Date Modified (added Nov. 7, 2017; will show a date if the page was modified after that date)
