Entourage Template Features

Header image

'Entourage' features a header image just under your band name and menu. In the ‘Edit Content’ tab, upload a header image that conveys your band’s sound. A landscape-style image (longer than it is wide) will work well to use here.

You can adjust your header image in the ‘Edit Theme’ tab, modifying it as follows:

  • Add an image filter
  • Use a custom color for your image filter
  • Adjust the header height
  • Remove the header image altogether (set it to 0)

The interior pages of your ‘Entourage’ website template will include your site title or logo. They do not have a header image.

Title / logo

With the 'Entourage' template you can use a text title, upload a custom logo, or set this option to ‘none’. The title will appear beside your thumbnail image. It features the following options:

  • ‘Text’: Enter your band or artist name text in the ‘Site Title’ field; select the font color; set the font style, size, and spacing, and toggle on/off the ‘uppercase’ option
  • ‘Logo’: Click ‘Choose An Image’ to upload a logo, and adjust the size using the slider
  • ‘None’: This option leaves the site title area blank

Flip title and menu

‘Entourage’ allows you to add your site title and menu on the left side of your website. You can click the ‘Flip title and menu’ option to place your site title above, or below, your menu. This will apply across all pages.

Navigation menu

The navigation menu is the area where page names are displayed. As clickable text buttons, they will allow your visitors to check out the different pages on your website. In 'Entourage,' your page names are listed horizontally on the top left.

Customize the look and feel of the ‘Entourage’ menu text using these design options:

  • Menu font color
  • Menu font hover color

  • Page background image: upload an image to display behind your content
  • Background image opacity: adjust the opacity of your mage to let the background color come through
  • Page content positioning: Top, Center, or Bottom

Content

The ‘Content’ section defines the consistent design choices throughout your website. This includes your content font and heading fonts. The 'Entourage' template allows you to adjust these options:

  • Content font: set the font type, style, size, line height, upper/lowercase, and link style
  • Title font: set the font type, style, size, line height, letter spacing, and upper/lowercase
  • Heading 1 font: set the font type, style, size, line height, and upper/lowercase options

Sections

With the ‘Entourage’ template, all sections are set by default to 1 style, making your page’s content area consistent. You can apply up to three section styles on your website if you’d like. Set the design of the section styles in the ‘Edit Theme’ tab as follows, then apply those styles to blocks of content through the ‘Edit Content’ tab.

You can customize your sections by using these options:

  • Content font color
  • Link color
  • Title font color

  • Heading 2 font color
  • Button color
  • Button hover color

Buttons

Many of the features on your website include buttons, such as the ‘Mailing List Sign-up Form’ and the ‘Custom Form.’ Here’s how the buttons can be customized with your website design:

  • Shape: rounded, square, or pill
  • Style: choose from ‘outline’ or ‘solid’
  • Color (adjust the ‘button color’ setting in the corresponding ‘Section Style 1/2/3’ area)

Site wide music player

The ‘Entourage’ template features an expandable site wide music player that can be added through the ‘Edit Content’ tab. This player appears on the right side of your website, will pop up when clicked, and will play music as visitors navigate the pages of your website.

To customize the colors of the player, toggle on the ‘Use custom colors’ option in the ‘Edit Theme’ area, and adjust these settings:

  • Background color (set the color you’d like to use)
  • Text color (‘white’ or ‘black’)

Variations

The 'Entourage' template offers four versions to start off with. Each one comes with a base palette of complementary colors. With each one, you can use the existing colours and simply add content, or adjust the colors and design options.

  • Playful: Features a pale pink background, white font, and whimsical header text.
  • Elegant: Shimmering notes of pale green set off by a simple white content area. It includes a plain white font for the site title and call-to-action text, and the menu at the top.
  • Sombre: Grungy rock ‘n roll feel, including a textured background in brown.
  • Neutral: Uses a black and white image filter, and a white content area, including simple black font choices.

'Entourage' template tips:

  • If you want your page background image to peek through a bit, you can set the background color opacity per section.
  • Try a PNG header image for a modern look against a simple background color.
  • Be sure to set the focal point of your main image in the ‘Edit Content’ tab. This will determine how your website’s image will crop on mobile devices.
  • Flip the header text and menu in the ‘Page’ options, to see which one suits your style.
