Website creation guides and tutorials
To customize the design of your website and give it a totally different look, there is nothing more effective than changing its background. The technical team of SiteW has developed new features for your website design. And what’s great about that, is that you will be able to enable all these new options, in just one click, only by checking a box.
SiteW offers you the possibility to add special effects to the background of your website: image, parallax images, video, texture, single color, gradient. You can add these options to the background page of your website if you want to use the same background for the whole website or you can choose a different background for each page or only some of them.
After checking the Image box, choose an image from the file manager of SiteW. You can upload an image from your computer or find free stock photos on Flickr, OpenClipart or Picasa. For better results, remember to use high quality pictures (1000 to 2000px width).
In order to get a uniform background, check the Color box, you can simply select your color by using the color picker. If you already know the precise color you want to use, you can also enter its html code.
You can add as many color squares you want simply by clicking on the gradient bar and thus create a multi-color gradient. You also have the possibility to define the proportion of each color of your gradient, simply by moving the color points you have created along the gradient bar.
The Slowly animated box will allow you to enable the animation and to give a nice and smooth motion to your gradient. This effect can be tested by Starter users on the website modification page but can be enabled only by Premium and Pro users.
This option allows you to add one or several background images that scroll slower than your website content in order to create a stunning 3D effect. If you choose a single image, the latter will scroll very slowly while the page is being scrolled.
The parallax images can be tested by Starter users on the website modification page but can be enabled only by Premium and Pro users.
