Customizing your site

"Customize Your Site" button opens a quick-edit sidebar for site settings

“Customize Your Site” button opens a quick-edit sidebar for site settings

On your Dashboard page is a big blue button labeled “Customize Your Site.” Clicking this brings up a special sidebar menu that brings together certain basic settings that affect the site as a whole:

  • Site Title & Tagline
  • Colors
  • Header Image
  • Background Image
  • Navigation
  • Static Front Page

Apart from two last items, Navigation and Static Front Page, which are better dealt with separately, the function of these menus is simple and self-evident.

While they are gathered here for quick access, this is by no means EVERYTHING you can do to customize your site. Moreover, all of these settings can be changed elsewhere, with additional options, in other Dashboard menus.

The big blue button, then, is handy for certain things, but very limited.
