Makeswift is a no-code website builder created by the Landing Lion team. Makeswift is thoughtfully designed to put you in flow & give you creative control.
Makeswift enhances the page building experience to make building full-scale, custom websites easier than ever.
Manage your design system’s brand palette in one place with site level color swatches.
Use any number of fonts, weights, and styles with a deeper and more flexible Google Fonts integration.
Leverage our new responsive grid features to customize your form layouts.
Easily include videos from other major platforms such as Vimeo, Facebook, and Wistia into your pages.
Set custom ID attributes on any element to target in your custom code snippets.
Create reusable, responsive typography to keep text styles across your pages consistent on every device.
Unlock infinite layout possibilities with the Box. The Box replaces sections, rows, and columns, and can be nested as many times as you need.
Organize your long, custom code blocks into reusable, bite-size snippets that can be shared across pages.
Add button styles and dropdowns to your navigation links for deeper customization.
Finally, you can move your pages between collections, as well as nest collections within each other.
In order to capture our vision, we focused on what makes us different—a smooth, page building experience designed to keep our customers in flow. You can easily replace the features we left out of Makeswift with code snippets from any of the following products.
Switching from Landing Lion to Makeswift is seamless. Our import tool automagically migrates your pages and files to Makeswift in minutes, saving you time from recreating them elsewhere.
We’re offering special pricing plans to Landing Lion users who move to Makeswift. You’ll also enjoy an extended free trial for Makeswift which ends March 20th, 2020. The sooner you switch over, the more you’ll save.
After Landing Lion shuts down on March 20, 2020 you will no longer be able to log into your Landing Lion account. All pages published in Landing Lion will also be taken offline.
To ensure your pages do not go offline, make sure to import your pages and connect your domains to Makeswift before March 20, 2020.
You cannot export content from Landing Lion. The import tool will automatically transfer all your files and pages into Makeswift. If you do not plan on moving to Makeswift, you will need to recreate your pages using whichever tool you switch to.
You’ll have access to export all analytics until Landing Lion shuts down on March 20, 2020. Within the “Analytics” tab of each collection, you can export your analytics as a .csv file by clicking on the “Export” button.
Depending on the amount of files and pages transferred to Makeswift, the import tool can take from 5 minutes up to 20 minutes. Once the import process has begun, we suggest not making changes in your Landing Lion account until the import is complete.
No, the import tool will not make any changes to your Landing Lion pages. All pages will remain online until you choose to take them offline, or until they automatically go offline on March 20, 2020.
Changes made to Landing Lion pages after the import process will not carry over to Makeswift. You will need to reproduce any changes manually in Makeswift.
You can rerun the import process from within Makeswift, but doing so will import all current pages from Landing Lion into your Makeswift account, possibly creating duplicate sites and files.
Form data will not be imported into Makeswift. Forms in Makeswift are connected to a new feature called Databases. The import tool will automatically create database tables based on existing forms in Landing Lion.
Form alerts are managed in each database table and will need to be set up manually once you’ve completed the import.
Makeswift currently only has a Zapier integration, so any native integrations set up in Landing Lion will not carry over. You can create your own integrations, or “Zaps”, within Zapier to connect your Makeswift account to over 1,500 other apps.
The import tool will convert Landing Lion pages into Makeswift ones, including transferring all content, colors, Google fonts, metadata, and custom code. Because of some differences between the two products, certain items such as custom code and forms will require attention.
We highly suggest following the Reviewing Imported Pages section of our “Transitioning from Landing Lion to Makeswift” help article to guide you through the review process.
If you have pages using your default Landing Lion domain, e.g. my-site.landinglion.com, you will not be able to set a redirect for them.
Currently users have access to every site in a workspace. If you need permissions, we suggest reaching out to us to help you create new workspaces to separate sites and users.
