Website creation guides and tutorials
You've just created your website? Great!
Our brand new website creation tool allows you to use Drag and drop in order to create and modify your website very easily.
You start with the website creation page.
We are first going to focus on the most important parts of the website creation tool.
In the middle of your screen, you can see your website with the template you selected. It is displayed exactly as it will appear to your visitors. This is where you simply drag and drop the different elements (we call them blocks) that you want to add to your website.
On the left, you'll find all the tools you'll need to create and modify your website.
These tools in three sections, for ease of comprehension and use:
Each of these sections and the numerous functions they contain is described below in detail.
You can see a dark toolbar on the top of your screen. This will enable you to save your work, to publish your website, to choose a subscription package, to access our free online help, etc. We'll talk about this again later on.
On the left-hand side of your screen, you'll find everything that you need to modify your website in the panels.
This ORANGE panel enables you to manage and customize the various pages of your website. You'll be able to reorder all your pages and to modify their hierarchy, simply by drag and drop using the grip on the left.
At the bottom of the panel, you'll find the page management toolbar. You can:
淘 delete a page
⎗ duplicate a page
✚ add a new page
The Settings tool ☰ allows you to manage page protection (password protection, member access, paying pages), as well as the SEO.
The background page is a special page which allows you to add blocks to the background of all your pages (useful for the menu and your logo).
With this BLUE panel, you add content to your website. To do so, use the blocks, which you can freely drag and drop onto your page. You can find all the blocks available on the Pro blocks page and on the Block Demo Page.
To add a block to your website, drag and drop it from the panel onto your page. The search feature allows you to quickly find what you want from among the numerous blocks available.
When you select a block on your website by clicking on it or on the border that appears on mouseover, you can modify it using the settings that appear in the blue panel. You can then choose from various options, depending on the block you have selected. To do so, you may have to use our File Selector.
You can also use the toolbar at the bottom of the panel, which allows you to copy, move ⎗ or delete 淘 a block, as well as to move it to foreground or to background ☷.
Using the different tools you can see on the block border, and you can resize, move, rotate and push your website elements, as described below:
There is also an automatic sizing tool specifically designed for mobile optimization.
Here is a list of the available blocks:
Image and multimedia
Community and Social Media
This GREEN panel allows you to choose another template for your website.
Advanced Premium and Pro users can also customize the style of the template they have selected by modifying the CSS (click on Edit style sheet).
NB: This function will soon be improved, making it easier and accessible to anyone, without any technical knowledge required.
The dark toolbar at the top of the page lets you save and publish ⋀ your website. Premium and Pro users will also be able to save their website as a draft ⚐, in order to publish it later.
You can also view a preview of your website ⃝.
The pink button allows you to activate advanced functions.
