Template Customization

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

When you have decided whether to use a default template, a custom template or create a new one, you can now decide whether to optimize it for just Desktop display or to make it responsive, so that it adapts automatically to the resolution of the device used for navigating the website. When you have made your choice,  you can make all the changes you want to the template's structure and define the graphic style of each element in the layout of the website pages: the navigation menu, texts, ShowBox windows, Tips, etc.

The options are:

Resolutions and Responsive Design

This indicates whether the new website will be optimized for just Desktop display or it will be a responsive website, automatically adapting to display on all kinds of devices, including tablets and smartphones. You can specify the website resolution and, if the site is responsive, indicate the necessary breakpoints.

Template Structure

This indicates the structure that the graphic template will have in Desktop display and, if the site is responsive, in each of the viewports that correspond to the specified breakpoints.

Header and Footer Content

This option opens the editor for entering the contents of the template's header and footer in both Desktop display and in each of the viewports of responsive websites.

Main Menu

Here you can design the style of the main menu, which appears either along the top or down the side of every page and helps visitors find their way around the website.

Drop Down Menu

You can define the style of the drop-down menus (menus that appear when the mouse is moved over an item in the main menu).

Page Menu

You can define the style of the page menu. Page menus list the various pages in at particular level.

Text Style

This option defines the styles for each of the text elements in the website pages.

ShowBox, Tooltip and E-mail

This option defines the styles to apply to:

Tooltips that may be associated with the Link;
ShowBox windows, which are the windows that open on links and may contain an enlarged picture, a video or a sequence of photos;
e-mails that originate from the E-mail Form Object or Shopping Cart.

Page scroll options

This option indicates what will happen when the page is scrolled to display all the contents.
