Hello @daltman314

I believe there’s a simple workaround that you can use for this:
Create a dummy LP which will only have the footer and then you add it as an iframe on your LP.
This way you can update your dummy LP footer and you will see it updated everywhere


#3

That is a great idea. Any idea on how to add the new LP as an iframe in unbounce? I’ve never done iframes.


#4

I would not recommend iframing. In my experience it will break on diff resolutions, screen sizes, devices, etc …


#5

Yeah, I tested it. That isn’t a solution.


#6

Even better than just footers… why not any sections?

Vote for this feature!

Where can I vote @phillip?

iframe’s are a horrible idea. how they where not left in the 90’s I don’t know…

It seems our previous devs have adopted this approach in force (with three footers iframed in). This has lead to all our Domain scripts firing up to four times… As someone who advocates for solid web practices, SEO/speed improvements and general UX uplift, this is unmanageable. Given I work with TMS’s (GTM/Tealium), this quadruples the firing of many tags… And our marketing team have been scratching their heads as to why the load speed on these pages is shot!

Unbounce, iframes are never a good idea. Hang your heads in shame, listen to your customers and support a template approach to this clear need.

UPDATE: Using jQuery within Domain Scripts to inject content into placeholder divs is a way we have considered to keeping the idea of a template solution. It has the obvious draw backs of A) requiring a dev and B) potentially see a minor lag on injection (from bottom of page). But, it is a work around that solves most of the issues I mentioned above.
