Global website settings

To access the settings within the website builder, just click the Settings tab on the right navigational menu.

There, you will be able to make global changes of specific parts of your website.

For example, you can change the color of all the buttons in your website at once. In a similar way, you can also change fonts and different content elements.

Creating a blog page

2) Then click Create new to add a new page.

3) Select Blog as your new page type.

4) Choose the name for your blog page.

5) Click Save.

Once your blog page is created, if you hover on the blog block and click the small edit icon located on the right corner, you can then edit your blog settings in the sidebar under the Content tab.

Note: If you do not want your blog page to be visible on your published website, check the box labeled Mark as draft page and Hide page from Navigation. This saves your changes without publishing the page to your website.

After selecting this option, enter the password that your subscribers or website visitors will have to enter to access the page.
