SPECIAL TIPS & NOTES on Professional Website Designs

If you add a General Background Color, and a Hompage Background Image, the color will appear on the top half of your Homepage layout.  Mix and match to design a nice Homepage layout.

Match your Slideshow Background Color to your Heomepage Background color for a seamless look.

Remove your Slideshow from the Homepage completely and simply feature a full-image background.

Work with Font Colors in your BIO/BLOG Statement box for best readability.The Rich Text box has independent controls and must be designed separately. For more info on using the Rich Text box, see our faq.
