With the release of sections, you now have a lot more design control within your pages themselves. Sections include options to adjust the padding of areas in your page, custom colors for section backgrounds, title alignment, and can help provide better overall organization of your features within your layout.
Here’s a quick run-down on how sections can quickly and easily improve your page look and layout for your band’s website design!
Organize your content
A section is essentially a big row of space on a page that you can add features to. Because you can customize the appearance of a section, it helps to visually break up your content, making it more legible for your visitors.
For example, you can use sections to place emphasis on a feature further down the page, like your mailing list signup form feature, or a video feature displaying the new video you just released on YouTube.
It’s really easy to add a section on the page in your control panel. Simply move your mouse over the page layout in the ‘Visual Editor’, you’ll see an ‘add section’ button appear above or below an existing section.
Click that button and get ready to set your new section properties!
Set your section properties
Every section you add to a page can have different ‘properties’. So you can add more or less padding to different areas of your layout, or set your section style.
Sections even come with an optional ‘title’ that appears at the top of your section area. You can even adjust the justification, so you can have left, centered, or right justified text, to add even more emphasis and clarity to your layout.
In the control panel, just move your mouse over the section to edit, and click the ‘edit section’ button that appears in the top left corner of the section area. When you’ve set your properties, just click ‘save’.
Customize your section styles
You can have two distinct section styles. Your styles are where you customize your section background, as well as text and link colors. So you can have high contrast between sections in your pages, or more subtle color differences - whatever you like!
Like the rest of your band website template design options, you would adjust your section styles under the ‘edit theme’ option of the control panel.
In the theme editor options on the left, just scroll down to your ‘Section style 1’ and ‘Section style 2’ options, select your color settings, and when you have everything set just right, click ‘save’ to apply your changes.
Sections make your website’s design more striking
Of course, even with sections, it’s good practice to follow the principles of good website design, but we think you’ll find our new sections option a simple, but powerful way to add more ‘oomph’ to your individual pages - it’s a whole new world of design customization!
