Configuring your website
Instructions on tweaking the configuration page to change the look and feel of the account's website...
Your responsive website is highly customisable. Below you can learn how you can change almost any part of the site to look unique and follow your brand image.
1. Page Size and Padding
This will set the canvas layout and feel. Below we've explain each of the settings:
Normal mode simply means your content will be centralised with a border on either side.
Wide mode is for those seeking to have their site fill the full width of the website.
This is the width of the content area, normally around 1024px
The distance between the border and text.
Corner smoother - The option to round off the top corners of boxes/widgets.
Page Padding - Adds padding to the top, bottom and sides of the site.
Border - Sets the Page Padding thickness.
Strip side padding from content area - Removes padding from around the content area.
Alternate heading mode - ######### TBC ##########
Allow new account signup - Allows people to create accounts without being prompted.
Disable website search - This disables the website search function.
You can opt to either have a back ground image or colour. The image can be Tiled by selecting the tiling drop down menu.
This controls the base colours throughout the site:
Top - Thin area above the header area.
Header - This is where the logo sits.
Navigation - The navigation bar.
Content - The normal content area.
Inside - The home page content boxes.
Footer - Bottom navigation bar.
Base - Thin area below the footer.
2. Top Bar
Add your social links so they can appear at the top of your webpage and allow your visitors to track you easily. Simply copy and paste the URL into the correct box.
To add a logo simply select "Choose File", browse your files and once the correct file has been selected then press "Open".
You can align it centrally, right, left and over the full width of the header.
Select and alter what appears on the menu, in what order and the style of it.
You can disable some of the functions from appearing on your menu, however they will still be functioning on the CRM desktop.
Simply drag and drop the pages so they're in the desired order
This alters the look of the menu bar and the highlighting/active background. Full will fill the area of that menu item. Padded will add a slight padding to the top and bottom of the bar. Underline will put a line under the menu links. Edged will add an edge to the bar.
Choose whether the text is all in capitals, lowercase or None, which will keep it as you have it in each content page.
Alignment: Choose to put the menu in the Centre of the Nav bar, in the left or the right.
Options: Sticky meas the menu bar will stick to the to of the page as the user scrolls down.
Secondary: Refers to the secondary navigation bar on the content pages. Right and left refers to which side of the main content you'd wish to have the menu. Column means the secondary menu will be be in a column formation. Float means the secondary menu will be in a box separate from the edge. Top Pop Down means the pages menu will be a drop down menu.
The dividing line adds a line between each secondary pages.
A Breadcrumb Trail is like a secondary navigation and give you an idea or where about you are in the website and quick links to parent content. They can be found under the main navigation bar and above the page header.
This refers to the colour of the text
Choose the colour of the links
Add the symbol you want to use to separate the pages/folders. For example add > to look like this: "Parent > Child > Infant"
Play around and create a unique looking homepage with these variables.

Full width slideshow:
This takes away the text box and adds an image slideshow across the full width of the box area.
