Landing Pages

  • Last updated on

When a user clicks a link you placed in a campaign, they end up on a landing page – a website you specify that can continue the simulation or serve educational content. Barracuda PhishLine has a variety of Landing Page templates you can use as is or modify for your campaign. Note that Landing Pages are disabled and are no longer accessible by users when the associated Campaign ends. For details, see the Landing Page Visibility section below. 

Accessing and Editing Landing Pages

To access Landing Pages in the Content Center:

  • From anywhere: Navigate to Campaigns > Landing Pages.
  • While creating a campaign: In the Content section, click Add New Landing Page.

Barracuda PhishLine includes many Landing Page templates. Use the filter in the left navigation pane to locate templates for specific categories, like Login or Education.

To use the filter, select your criteria, then click Apply. The matching templates display in the Content Center page.

To edit an existing Landing Page template:

  1. Locate the desired Landing Page template and click the Edit button editButton.png. In the Content Action dialog, click one of the following buttons:
    • Edit to work with the content of the email template.
    • Copy and Edit to create a clone of the email template to edit, so you are not altering the original.

      The following options are also available, but do not open the email template editor:
    • Copy and Add to My Recent Campaign to add a clone of the email template to your campaign.
    • Add to My Recent Campaign to add this specific template to your campaign. 
  2. Enter the following information:
    General Settings
    • Landing Page – Enter a familiar, unique name for this template.
    • Description – Optional. Enter text to describe the email template.
    • Category – Optional. This value is filled in automatically if you are using an existing template. You can change the value if you choose.
    • Active – Select to enable this template to be used in campaigns.

      If you clear the  Active  check box, the email template will not be available to be used in campaigns. If the campaign is in  Design mode and you deactivate the email template, you will not be able to  Generate  the campaign.

    Page Design
    • Hypertext {link} – Enter the address to display for the URL, not the actual URL.

    • Page Title – Enter the title to display across the top of the browser bar.

    • Page Content Use the WYSIWYG editor or click the  Source  button to create or edit your template. Click the Image button image.png  to add images from the Barracuda PhishLine Image Gallery , or your own images, to the Landing Page template. Use the Video button movie.png to add MP4 videos, like tutorials, to your Landing Page. Add links within the email to take users to additional pages for the campaign or other predefined simulation or training pages.

      When adding links to your template, it is best to specify sites hosted by Barracuda PhishLine to maximize tracking and reporting. Barracuda PhishLine cannot track or report on clicks to sites hosted by others, including non-PhishLine learning management systems.

Landing Page Visibility at Campaign End

When a Campaign ends, any Landing Pages it references are disabled and are no longer accessible by end users.

This section describes Landing Page visibility to end users, when associated with a Campaign. The Landing Page template is still available in the Content Center and locally, if you downloaded it. 

When a Campaign containing a Landing Page passes the Campaign Cutoff Date, the landing page is locked, or disabled, and appears in a browser as File Not Found .  In this  locked state, the Landing Page still collects clicks for users who click the links, but these clicks are hidden from  reporting. If you change the Campaign Cutoff Date to a future date before the Campaign goes to the locked state, the Landing Page  is immediately re-published and the hidden clicks will be visible in reporting.

After a campaign goes into the Locked state, the Landing Page is completely disabled and any clicker activity after that point will be completely ignored and lost. In this state, users who click on the link to the Landing Page will see 404 Resource Not Found in their browser, because the Landing Page is disabled and is no longer accessible to users.
