New and Improved Template Designer!
As a Reason8 customer, you are a website builder with a pretty impressive toolkit!. If you have been using the fantastic new Template Designer to create the perfect look and feel for your website, you may have noticed some recent changes. Your Template Designer is under constant development and you'll see ongoing improvements to make it the best system available. The latest improvements are brilliant! New and exciting options for the outside area of your website will keep you playing for hours, they’re so fun……..
We’ve created a whole series of tutorials to help you get the very best out of your template designer. Click here to view all the tutorials so far.
Let’s look at the new and improved Design Options.
The first difference you may notice are the menu buttons at the top of your header. Previously, the tabs were: Background; Add Images; Add Text and Next but have changed to those shown above to highlight the new Design section.
If you’re starting from scratch with a new trial, simply choose your preferred starter template from all the categories and choices available and click personalise.
If you’ve already started designing your website and header background, simply login to your website, click step 2 Style and click the header to open the editor.
Under Design you now have three new options;
Design your own Template'; Use our Design; and More Designs.
Today we’ll look at “Design your own Template”, which when you’re feeling creative provides you with the tools to Change the colour and shape and background of your template.
Click this option and then Click on the particular area of your website on which you want to work. The Outside section is where you’ll see a really exciting major update!
Click “Outside” and you’ll see an enormous menu of colours and patterns, which you can place to add that perfect finishing touch to your website.
As with many of the functions within Reason8’s Template Designer, all you have to do is click of any of the choices and your website will instantly show your selection. The pattern or colour you choose will appear outside the main page area of your website, almost like a frame to the left and right.
If you don’t like your first choice, just click another to see how that fits and so on and so on.
