Create Awesome Landing Pages in Free Generatepress
We all know WA has officially launched Generatepress Free Version on all its SiteRubix sites, and WordPress also launched Gutenberg and in the coming days it’s going to become the default editor.
From the last few WAbinars, Jay also recommends practicing Gutenberg and becoming familiar with its editorial section.
In the last WAbinar, Jay showed how to create a landing page in Generatepress.
Honestly, I always found it very difficult to create landing pages for some or the other reasons. But I started practicing landing pages with Gutenberg, and surprisingly it’s quite easy to build landing pages with the help of Gutenberg blocks.
It took me a few hours to build a landing page in free Generatepress with the help of Gutenberg, but once you get the hold of it, you will create the next landing page in significantly less time.
Premium Generatepress gives you many more customization options, but I have created this landing page in free Generatepress theme so that even Starter members of WA, create stunning landing pages without any plugin.
I have only installed GenerateBlocks by Tom Usborne, creator of the Generatepress. It has many useful blocks that can be used while creating landing pages but most of them are similar to Gutenberg. One block that I found really useful is “Container”. By using this block, you assure a fixed format for every block and you get a ton of customization options particularly for adding colours to your landing paage.
I also tried to format my landing page without the “Container” block, it doesn’t work when I uploaded a YouTube video. Its gone full width and becomes somewhat overwhelming.
Disclaimer: I don’t have any coding knowledge and no technical background:) Just trying to figure out how Gutenberg works:))
Sharing my “Aha” moment
But still, I was not able to figure out how to adjust the “Button” in Gutenberg, it sticks to the left alignment and beyond a certain degree, you can’t increase the button size.
So before we start, I want to share a resource from which I take the inspiration and build my landing page.
It’s not an affiliate link, I am sharing this link because it has many landing page templates, from which we can take some great ideas.
Now I am sharing my landing page which I have created on my demo website Yoga For Kids, and I use this demo site for experimentation.
Now let me show you, how easy it is to create a landing page in Free Generatepress without any page builder.
