Edit background

Support > Designer > Site editor

You have many design options for your website’s background.

After «logging into Designer», follow these steps:

1. Navigate

You begin on the home page of Designer's editor and are thus in the «Site editor» view. Click on «Pages and Styles» on the blue header bar.

The following view opens with these options:

  • Reordering pages and folders
  • Site styles
  • Site scripts

Click on «Site styles» in the undermost area.

2. Select background type

The options for website backgrounds are displayed. «Solid Colour» is selected by default. Click the drop-down menu. You can select from three types:

 

Background type: Solid Colour

If you would like to use one colour for your background, select the «Solid Colour» option from the drop-down menu.

Next, click on the «Background colour» square.

The colour picker is now being displayed. You can click on one of the coloured tiles to select that colour.

The website automatically updates to reflect the colour you select. That way you can check if the colour is to your liking.

You can also insert the colour «RGB value» in the input box bellow, should you have one already.

You can also use the colour wheel, with which a wider area of colour variances can be chosen from. To do so, click on the corresponding icon on top.

Choose a colour in the colour wheel and the website automatically updates. Adjacent to the colour wheel are two additional sliders which allow further customizatoin in colour brightness and opacity.

You can also insert the colour «RGB value» in the input box bellow, should you have one already.

Click the «Back»-icon and than the «X» icon to save your changes once you found the colour you want to use.

 

Background type: Gradient

If you would like a gradient for your background, click «Gradient» in the drop-down menu.

You can now select the two colours that will constitute the gradient and specify exactly how the gradient should appear: «Vertical», «Horizontal» or «Circular».

If you are happy with your choice, click the «X» icon to save the new settings.

 

Background type: Image

If you would like to use an image for your background, click «Image» in the drop-down menu.

You can now select the image by clicking «Change image».

Select an image that has already been uploaded and thus visible in the selection, a professional picture from the picture library or add a new image by clicking «Upload a new image».

Next, you can configure other settings for the image background.

Under «Scale», select «Full screen» or «Original size».

Then you can define the «Horizontal» placement, such as «Left», «Center» and «Right».

In the «Vertical» area you define the placement such as «Top», «Center» and «Bottom».

Depending on what you select in «Repeat», you can chose whether your image requires: «None», «Horizontal», «Vertical» or «Both».

Save your changes by clicking the «X» icon.
