Theme: A theme is the skin of your website. It also represents how your website is structurally laid out. The website theme shows you what sort of pages will be included in the basic structure of the website. Pages can be deleted off the theme if they are unneeded.

Color scheme: Color scheme is an arrangement or combination of colors. We provide examples of some schemes that you can use on your website. The default color scheme can be customized as well. Each theme has 5 main colors schemes that can be changed.

Layout: This is how your website pages are constructed. Each page should have a unique and easy to navigate structure. Typically the website should have the same layout unless the page is a gallery or blog page.

Style: This lets you control the character types and design elements such as backgrounds, spacing, and borders. Make use of styling options to appeal to your target audience.

This includes the logo, navigation and main banner associated with your layout. This area appears on all of your web pages.

This area is specific to each page. You can have different content and placement of elements within the body portion of your web pages. Typically body layouts are composed of 2 - 3 columns of data.

This area appears on all of your web pages. It is often used to place links to important areas of your web site, copyright information and link to external sites.

Body Layout:

The body content layout can be changed from either a 1, 2, or 3 column format. Take care in adjusting body columns to fit the content your page requires.
Please note: Selecting a body layout that contains less columns than your page will result in 1 or more columns being hidden from view.
