Style Your Website

Background and Width


You can set the background for your website to a solid color, pattern, or of an image of your choice. You may also want to set a maximum width for your website or disable this option to leave the width fluid. To control these settings, simply navigate to the 'DESIGN' menu and then visit 'Background and Width'.

 

 

Set a background color by selecting the color picker by clicking on the color square, or by typing in a hex color value of your choice. Optionally, you can set a pattern to display on top of the background color by clicking the 'Pattern' button, or, click 'Image' to choose an image from your uploaded images or stock photo library to display as the background.





If you have chosen an image background, you can click the 'Settings' button to access a variety of image setting options. You can choose a different scaling setting, or enable the fixed background setting to create a parallax effect.

Tip: Don't see the background color or image appear after saving? Any blocks that have their own background will cover the main website background. You can remove the block's background by going to the 'Style' menu and setting the color to transparent from the block's toolbar, then your website's background should be displayed behind that block.

To change your website's maximum width, navigate to the website width section of the style menu and click the checkbox to enable the maximum width, then use the slider to set a maximum width in pixels. Alternatively, you may leave this option unchecked to have no maximum width, allowing a more fluid effect (this is useful for users with widescreen sizes).
 

 
Set a Maximum Width
 
Fluid Width (No Maximum Width)


If you wish to have a margin on the left and right-hand sides of your pages, you can achieve this look by navigating to the website margin section of this style menu and using the slider to set a margin in pixel units.




 

Base Font Style


You can set a default font for your website by navigating to 'DESIGN' and then 'Base Font Style'. This can be useful if you have the desired font style, size, or color in mind that you wish to have the majority of your content on your website appear in. While all fonts are fully customizable in each block, your base font is the default font that will initially be set for your blog post or paragraph content (and other locations across your website).





Choose a font family and adjust the font to your liking by adjusting the size, letter spacing, line height, and font color.


 

Heading /Title Styles


There are 6 title styles you can set for your website. When setting a title in the title element or the Paragraph element, you can choose from Heading 1, Heading 2, ..., Heading 6. In order to change the font style, sizing, spacing, or color, for a particular header, you can do so by navigating to the 'DESIGN' menu, and then select 'Heading / Title Styles'. From here, you can select the header you would like to edit by selecting the correct tab in the style menu (tabs H1 to H6).





Tip: Not sure which heading style your title is in that you are looking to change? Navigate to the page your title is on first, then open the Heading / Title Styles menu. Once the menu is open, there will be a bubble indicating which header is in use (H1 through H6). 


Link Styles

Choose your default link style by navigating to the 'DESIGN' menu and then 'Link Styles'. From here, you can set a font style, size, and color. The font styling under the 'REGULAR' section will be the default style for any unvisited links. Optionally you can also change the style under the 'HOVER' section to change the appearance of the link styling when a visitor hovers their mouse over the link. Lastly, you can change the appearance of visited links from the 'VISITED' section.




 

Button Styles


When creating a button for your website, you are given many different button styles that are provided with your template to choose from. All of these button styles are fully customizable. To customize a button style, go to the 'DESIGN' menu and then 'Button Styles'. There are many customization options for the button, adjust everything from the font, shape, size, and color of the button. You can even set a hover style so your button changes styles when your visitor hovers their mouse over the button by adjusting the 'Hover Style' options from this menu. Lastly, remember to save your changes to apply them.





 

Form Styles


There are various locations throughout your website where you may have input forms, including Contact Form elements, blog comments, visitor comments, and search bars. You can completely style all components to a form including the input fields, labels, titles, and the validation text that appears after submitting input. In order to style your form, go to the 'Design' menu and then 'Form Styles'.

Visit the corresponding tabs in the Form Styles menu to style the following:
  • Input Fields
  • Input Labels
  • Validation Text
  • Submit Button
  • Checkbox/Radios
  • Title Text
  • Paragraph Text
Tip: Want to quickly add a Contact Form with a unique style? Visit the Contact Forms section of the 'BLOCKS' menu to add a pre-designed contact form to your page.

Adding Video Backgrounds

We are proud to announce that SiteBlocks now supports video backgrounds! Set video backgrounds on your website to increase visit time and impress your visitors. Video backgrounds can be useful to add to your landing page, the home page, or splash pages.

Tip: Make your video ready to show on desktop websites. By default, most mobile web browsers disable videos by default, so it's best to make these ready for larger screens.

Once you have your video ready to go, simply add it as a Block's background from the Block Style Editor. We currently accept videos with the .mp4 file extension so please make sure it is in the correct format before uploading. You may also link to an external .mp4 file. For best quality, ensure your video resolution is high enough for a standard website page, because small videos may appear blurry on a large webpage.

 

 

Where to Find


Edit your website and locate the Block you would like to add a video background to. In the Block's Toolbar click 'Style' to open the Blocks Style Menu. From here, you can click the folder icon to access the Photo and Media Manager, where you can select your video, or upload your video if you haven't already. Optionally, if you want to link to the video, simply paste the full URL for the video in the input field.



Tip: Add a spacer element to your block to adjust the height to accommodate the video.

Please see our videos for a detailed walkthrough on how to add, style, and edit Blocks, Columns, and Elements on your new SiteBlocks website!


Part 1: How to Add Blocks, Columns, and Elements

 

 
 

Part 2: Style & Edit Blocks, Columns, and Elements


 

 

Overview


See the pictures below to understand where each structure is located:



Blocks


Blocks are the main containers that hold your website content and offer a convenient way to group your website content into different sections.  Body blocks are the main blocks that make up the body of your page and are indicated by the purple outline when editing your website. 

Note that all elements and columns on your page will always be inside of a block. If you add a single element to an empty page, this will automatically create a block to hold the element.





There are also special blocks meant for the header and footer of your pages.

Header blocks are located at the very top of your page and can be used to create a header for your website. These can be identified by the green outline surrounding the block while editing your site.






Footer blocks are located at the bottom-most part of your page and can be used to create a footer for your website. This is a great place to put additional information about your company, organization, or contact information. These can be identified by the green outline surrounding the block while editing your site.





You can create multiple different styles of headers and footers for different locations on your website, or for different events/time of the year. For complete information on how to use Header and Footer blocks, please see our articles on Header Blocks and Footer Blocks.


 

Creating New Blocks


Create a new block by adding an element, column, or premade block (located in the Blocks menu) onto a purple ribbon that appears when dragging an item onto your page.

If you add a single element to an empty page, this will automatically create a block to hold the element. To do so, navigate to the Elements menu and drag and drop a new element onto a purple 'New Block' ribbon.






You can also drag empty columns into a new block section to create a new block.
 




We also have a large variety of pre-made blocks you can add to your page. You can find these from the 'Blocks' menu.
 
 

Blocks Menu


Access the blocks menu to style, move, or copy content.



 

Styling A Block


To style an already existing block on your website, hover over the block with your cursor until you see a purple "Body Block" border dropdown appear. 

Click on the purple "Body Block" dropdown, and a menu will appear. You will see a Style option, which will bring up a style editor. There are many options to choose from, including background, padding, and font styling options.


 

Duplicating A Block


To duplicate an already existing block on your website, hover over the block with your cursor until you see a purple "Body Block" border dropdown appear. 

Click on the purple "Body Block" dropdown, and a menu will appear. You will see a duplicate option, which will bring up a "Duplicate Container" window asking where you'd like to move the block. You may add the duplicate block to your current page, or another page on your website. You will then be taken to the duplicated block, where you may move it up or down the page.


 

Editing A Block


To edit an already existing block on your website, hover over the block with your cursor until you see a purple "block" border dropdown appear. 

Click on the purple "block" dropdown, and a menu will appear. You will see a style option, which it will bring up a "Block Styles" window. From here you can change the background color of the block, the font color, add an image, or change the padding and borders.


 

Moving A Block


To move an already existing block on your website, hover over the block with your cursor until you see a purple "block" border dropdown appear. 

Click on the "block" dropdown, and a menu will appear. You will see a "move up" and "move down" option. Selecting these options will move the block up or down the block next to it. 



 

Columns & Rows


Inside the blocks are rows of columns. You can find columns by looking for the blue menu on the right-hand side of your content. Columns act as the content container that will hold your elements. You can have 1 single column across one row of your page, or have up to 6 columns in a row. Having multiple columns in 1 row is a great way to space your content across your page.


An empty column will appear as an empty content container. Click 'Add Content' or simply drag existing elements into the box from other locations on the page or new elements from the Elements Menu.






If the column already has content inside of it, you can see the column and access the Column Menu from the blue bar that appears on the right-hand side of your element.





You can stack multiple elements inside one column. Simply drag the elements onto any of the available orange ribbons within that container.

 

 

Creating New Columns & Rows
 

Create a new column by adding an element, or an empty column/row (located in the Blocks menu) onto a blue ribbon that appears when dragging an item onto your page.


To add empty Rows / Columns, navigate to the 'BLOCKS' menu:
 




Add an Element to a blue ribbon to create a new row for the Element:




 

Removing Columns & Rows


To remove a column, simply navigate to the blue column menu and select 'Remove Column'. Please note, this will remove all elements inside of the content which is not reversible.
 

 

 

Elements


Elements make up the content on your page. You can identify them by the orange border surrounding them when in the editor. Select from our wide range of media, e-commerce, blogging, and social media elements to create a beautiful modern website in Site Blocks.

 

Adding An Element

 
If you want to add an Element to your website by creating your own personalized block, look to the side menu and select "Elements" this will open up a panel with all the elements that you may use for your website.

Scroll down the list to find the element you want to use or search from the search bar at the top of the list if you already know what you are looking for.

Moving An Element

 
Drag the element to the desired location and note the orange color of the content location area to be sure you're adding it to the currently edited page. 
 



Duplicating An Element

 
Option 1: Hover over the element until the orange dropdown appears. The element menu will pop open, where you will see a "duplicate" option.  A window will open allowing you to choose which page you'd like your element to go to.





Option 2: Quickly duplicate an element by hovering over the element until an orange dropdown appears. Hold down Shift and click and drag with your cursor until you see orange and blue guides appear. Let go of the element, then let go of the Shift key.



 

Editing An Element

 

Hover over the element until the orange dropdown appears. The element menu will pop open, where there will be multiple editing options. Depending on the element you are editing, you will be able to add animations, add a link, edit the style, and much more.
