How to Customize Headers

,

You can customize the heading and sub-heading (optional) to optimize for each different background image. You can ensure that the text is readable and looks great against nearly any type of background, whether it is a dark or light background or something in-between. The video will give you an overview on how you can use these tools.

To access these options, select Banner/Sliders under Customize Website, then Home Page:

banner_nav

Here are the options and what they mean:

banner_slides

(Sub)Heading for Slide # – This is the heading text. You want main heading to be bigger than the sub-heading.

Font Color – Select the color of the text.

Text Shadow – (optional) If the text is not clearly readable, you may want to add a slight shadow to make it stand out.

Shadow Color – Select the color of the text shadow. Make sure it contrasts with the background image.

Font Size – Set the size of the text.

Alignment – You can make the headings pushed to the right or left of the header or centered.

Divider – (optional) Add a line between the main heading and the sub-heading. 0 means no divider line will be displayed.

Color – Color for the divider.

Link to Page – (optional) You can link the main heading to one of the pages created in the Content Manager.

Please note that these options are only applicable to these header types:

Search Box
