Navigating the Website Builder
Once you have chosen a theme, you can start customizing the site by filling in your own content and changing the design preferences. On the left of the Website Builder, you will find the Builder Panel, and on the right you will see the Content Editor which also serves as a live preview of your page.
The builder panel consists of three major sections:
- Pages Listing - This is where you add, arrange and update the settings for the pages for your site.
- Design Options - You can change your theme, colour scheme, customize branding options and more.
- Site Settings - The settings tab allows you to add a custom domain, edit your site details and more.
You can easily add and remove content from your Website through your Pages Listing tab. To begin adding content, you just need to follow three quick steps:
- Add a Page - create and name individual pages to categorize and display your content.
- Select a Page Template - choose a template that best suits the purpose of your page, or choose a blank template to build your page from scratch.
- Add Blocks - add, remove or edit blocks within a page to create your custom content layout. After adding a block, you can swap out the sample information for your personal content.
After creating and personalizing a page, you can further customize the page with your Page Settings, located within the Page Listings tab of your Builder Panel. These settings allow you to personalize how your content is displayed and accessed across your website.
The Design Options is your main hub for the primary design elements of your website. Within this tab, you can change the font, accent color, theme and color scheme of your site, as well as add your own custom logo/branding. The Pixieset branding is also controlled from within these settings, allowing upgraded users to toggle it on or off as desired.
Many blocks also have their own design and layout styles to choose from, which can be accessed by selecting a block in the Content Editor and adjusting the settings in the Builder Panel.
The Site Settings tab is where you will find the global settings associated with your website. These settings can be adjusted to control the way in which your website is connected to the rest of the web. Here, you can also determine how your site will appear in search results pages, and access our Analytics feature.
Publishing your Website
Once you've finished building your website, you can publish and share it immediately! After you have initially published your site, any further adjustments will be kept private until you re-publish them. You also have the ability to take your portfolio offline at any time by using the “unpublish” button in your Site Settings.
By default, your website will be available from its Pixieset domain. However, upgraded users can easily add a Custom Domain to fully personalize their websites.
