How to edit your own website
In the Website Builder dashboard, click on Edit site.
Lock All Layers
In the Website Builder editor page, click on the Sandwich icon on the top right corner and click on Lock All Layers. This is done to ensure that you do not accidentally displace any element from their position. Of course, you can move any element to a position that you want by using the unlock button on any individual element.
Next let’s enter all the information about our website. Again on the top right corner menu click on Site settings. In the Site Settings pop up window under Site info tab enter all the information about your website like
Site or Business name
The information you enter here will be used in the Contact Form, Google Maps and to display them as text information on your website.
Under Site Features tab, press the ON button next to Social share, Mobile site, Favicon (32px x 32px)
You can also choose to display the Grids if you want to move around elements. In the sandwich menu click on Grid/Guides and choose Small Grid or Large Grid based on your needs. Small Grids can be used for accurate placement of an element. If you want to move any individual element click on it and in the drop down menu click on Unlock layer.
Next let’s see how to add fill colour or image to your Background. Click the Sandwich icon and click on Background.
Alternatively, you can click on an empty space and click on Background.
In the Site Background Settings pop up you can select a colour or use subtle patterns to attach an image to your website Background.
Next let’s see how to check or change the Width and Height of your website. Click the Sandwich icon and click on Page Settings.
Alternatively, you can click on an empty space and click on Page Settings.
Here you can change the Page width and height or just leave them at their default. You also have the option to assign a separate background colour for your page.
Add a Page
Based on the theme you have selected you already have some default pages. But if you need to create more pages click on New Page, enter a name for your page and click on OK. You can also create a new page by copying an existing page.
If you want to rename any existing page, click on the pages drop down menu in the menu bar as shown in the figure. Click on the Edit page icon next to the page you want to rename. You also have the option to create a copy of this page.
In the Edit Page pop up you can enter a new name for your webpage. You can also enter your SEO optimized meta title and description in this window.
Set Home page
Now that we know how to change all the basic settings for our website, let’s see how to set a Home page for our website. You already have a default Home page assigned to your website, but in case you want to change it, click on the pages drop down menu in the menu bar, click on the home icon next to the page you want to assign as the Home page.
