Default Includes

Site Pages

You have the choice of creating a single-page or multiple-page website.

  • 10 sections limit on single-page sites
  • 20 sections limit on multiple-page sites
  • 50 page max - platform limit

Navigation

As you build out your site, you may need to change the order of the pages in your website's navigation bar. If you change your mind later on, you can quickly reorder them again from the "Pages & Navigation' settings.

  • You can select which page links display in footer nav vs header nav from the respective page settings
  • Creating drop-down menus for your website's navigation bar offers a great way to group pages

Note: When working with sub-navs, the drop-down menu parent must be a dead link. There is no way to add sub-nav items under a drop-down where the parent is a link or a page of its own.

Site Footer

There are three layout options for the site footer. You cannot add images to the footer or any additional content. 

  • Footer's editable components: copyright text, footer note, option to enable/disable social accounts, and option to show/hide site navigation links
  • Layout 1 stacks components, layouts 2 & 3 display components inline, and layout 4 provides a compact layout with the option to display phone number

Page Content
