Understanding Site Editor's Templates

Building a website with Site Editor is as easy as 1-2-3! To save time and energy, use one of the professionally designed templates as a starting point for your website.

You can also select a blank template (scroll to the bottom of the Gallery of Templates) and build your site from scratch by dragging blocks and stand-alone layout elements from the library of ready-made items and dropping them onto placeholders.

Choose your Template with caution, keeping in mind the purpose of your website and the fact that you won't be able to switch templates once you start building your site in Site Editor.

Every Template (except for the blank one) contains a basic set of professionally designed pages, or at least one scrollable page, with sample content - text, images, forms, and videos - which you can replace with your content.

Most Templates have two versions: Multi-Page and Single-Page (scrollable).

You can easily customize the selected Template prefilled with structured content by modifying this sample content or adding new content - blocks or individual elements - to existing or new pages.

You can also reorganize the site's structure by rearranging the pages and reorganizing the pages themselves by rearranging the elements of the layout (blocks and features) to create the custom design that suits your needs.

Follow these simple steps to create your custom, professionally-looking website based on a Site Editor's Template:

  • Step 1: Select a template layout for your website from the Gallery of Templates.
  • Step 2: Open the selected template layout in Site Editor and replace the sample content with your own.
  • Step 3: Expand the template layout by adding new pagesblocks, and features.
  • Step 4: Preview and publish your website.

Selecting the Template

  • Use Template Categories at the top of the Gallery of Templates page to locate the best Template that suits your purpose. 
  • Click a template to preview it as a live website:

  • Use the Navigation Menu (if any) to preview the layout pages. 
  • Scroll down to preview the whole page. Click a slider arrow [< / > ] on the left or right side of the Template Previewer to go to the previous or next Template in the selected Category.

Please Note: You won't be able to switch templates once you click the Create This Site button. You will need to delete the whole project and start again to build your site based on another Template.

  • Click the Create This Site button in the top-right corner of the Template to start building your site in the Site Editor:
