Importing landing page template

I'm trying to import a landing page a template that I downloaded online. 

The import feature won't allow to upload the whole folder at once. Is there a way for me to upload all the images, css files etc. at the same time so that I don't have to re-host them individually and find the place the url needs to be added to the main email html?

Hi Eoin,

 The images most certainly would need to be hosted on Marketo itself - in the design studio -> Images and files. Once this is done the new URL created for the image (Within Marketo) would need to be referenced.  And ss far as I understand, the CSS files also would need to be re-done as per Marketo email editor coding practices.

Best Always,

Marketo's landing page and file hosting isn't a blank folder where you can simply paste another folder, but it's not hard to "import" a landing page

  • Host your assets either on your own file server or in Marketo (hosting on your own server makes things easier since you can preserve the folder structure).
  • Create a new landing page template and paste the HTML in there.
  • Use find and replace to prepend or replace base URLs of assets in the LP template.
  • If you're hosting css or js assets in Marketo, don't forget to find and replace any src URLs in these files too

... and for a little icing on the cake...

While it doesn't make a difference in terms of the file path, I still like to setup a folder structure similar to what you'd see outside of Marketo. When I create a new template, I'll create a new folder inside the images/files folder for my template and then nest the "sub-directory" folders inside that.

Something like:

> Images/Files 

  • 19q3 LP Template Assets
    • images
    • css
    • js

All the files will still come from the same ".../images/" folder in Marketo, but this lets me stay a little more organized as I work and I think it's helpful for anyone who'd come behind me to pick up this project in terms of being easy to understand and find things.
