Website creation guides and tutorials
The SiteW Icon block will allow you to add an icon to your site in just one click: it is very useful to convey clear and concise information to your visitors. It will also enable you to improve your website navigation and design.
Start with dragging an Icon block to your site using your mouse on the website creation page. Then select your icon of choice among the numerous options available in the file manager. You can choose several icons (up to 5).
Easily add one or several links to your icon by clicking on the button Add a link in the blue panel on the left side of your screen.
Choose your type of link and if needed, enter the required information in the input field: external website, email address, phone number, website page, blog article or product, document, image, or check the “No link” option. If several icons have been added, it is possible to add one link per icon. You can replace the Social block by the Icon block, by selecting social media icons and adding your links.
To customize the way your icon look, go to the Design tab, once your block is selected.
You can choose a standard size for your icon.
You can choose a preset style, similar for all the blocks that can be customized (Blog, FAQ, Text, etc.) or create a custom style, just for your Icon block.
Select your color of choice using the color picker. You can define the transparency of the color by using the slider on the right. You can choose the background color of your icon using the same way. You can set the normal and hover colors, if desired.
Set the spacing between the icon and the background borders by moving the cursor along the appropriate slider.
If you add several icons, you can add an outer margin.
Set the border radius of your icon background by moving the cursor along the appropriate slider. You will thus be able to create an icon with a round or square background. Please note that the background is only visible if a background color has been selected.
You can set the border width, and choose the border style, by using the slider and the dropping menu.
You can add an inner or outer shadow to your icon, and set the distance, color, spread and size, by using the configuration tools at your disposal.
You can add your own CSS in the input field.
The Icon block will allow you to add effective visual elements to your website: call to action buttons, social media icons, graphic elements…
