Create landing page
For certain registration situations, you may need or desire to present your attendees with a single page that can direct a user to multiple individual events. Of course you can do this quite easily if you have your own web site and the capability to accomplish this.
You may also do it by creating what we call a 'Landing Page'. This is a special event that has only a single page - (identical to the Layout page). The single page will have an event code of its own so you can insert the event link into your web site or in an email.
You can access the Landing Page facility by clicking on the my account link in the upper left corner of your screen. You will see this display on the left panel:
Click the create landing page link and you will be asked for the name of your Landing Page:
Once the page is created you will be presented with a single page/ form with some of the functionlaity of the normal 'Layout' page. You will not see registration types and only a single text input area. You can upload your logo or hide that section, you can enter when and where data if applicable, or just hide them.

The link dialogue looks like this:
You will note that the pasted link does not include the http:// part.
After entering the event link, click on the Target tab and ask to open the link in a New Window:

You may wish to change the raw link into something easier to read an understand. You can do that by clicking on the Source link for the text box. When you click the Source tab, you will expose the html code of the text:
