How to Keep your LearnWorlds School Hidden Until You Are Ready to Launch

In this article, we've compiled several useful recommendations to maintain the privacy of your school during its construction phase:

  1. Deactivate the registration process for visitors to your school (prospective users).
  2. Pause or stop the search indexing of your school.
  3. Use a temporary Landing or Home Page.
  4. Incorporate a prelaunch section to inform your users of the upcoming launch.

Disable the Sign-Up process

If you wish to disable the sign-up process in your school:

a. Go to Website → Website Settings → Authentication → LearnWorlds.

b. Click on No one can sign up. I will add my users manually under the Sign-up process.

You can find more information in our respective article.

Pause/Stop the Search Indexing of your School

If you want to stop the Search Indexing of your school:

a. Navigate to Website → Design → Edit website → Custom Code and add the following, under <head> logged in (html) and under <head> logged out (html):

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">

b. Click on Update and save your changes. 

You can also exclude specific pages from sitemap by following the steps in our respective article

Use a Temporary Home/Landing Page

Replacing a school's default homepage with a new or temporary one can serve various purposes, including promoting events, conveying important announcements, facilitating maintenance or updates, responding to emergencies, showcasing achievements, supporting educational campaigns, testing new features, and even customizing for special occasions. 

This may involve displaying an "Under Construction" or "Pre-launch" page if you're not ready to welcome your initial users yet.

a. Go to Design → Edit Website and navigate to your Pages Manager.

b. You will notice that there are different types of pages. Currently, your home page has the /pages/home slug.

c. Click on Clone Page.

d. Once the page is duplicated, click Website → Site Navigation.

e. Click on Select a page and choose the page you wish from the dropdown menu, under Home Page (before login page), and click on Apply.

Incorporate a Prelaunch Section

If you wish to inform your users about the upcoming launch of your online academy, you can add one of our Prelaunch Sections

a. Go to Website → Design → Edit Website.

b. Choose the page you want to edit from the Pages Manager.

c. Click on the +Add section to add one of our available Prelaunch Sections.
