Updating Your Website to a New Theme
Updating your current website to the new theme is a simple process. New themes can be chosen from the drop-down list at Website -> Settings -> Website Theme. Select the new Momentum Light or Momentum Dark theme. All of your website content and images will transfer over. The majority of the pages will look good, but you may need to do some freshening up and adjustments to your images or content.
Banner Layout Options
There are now several options for your website banner layout. These options are also managed from Website -> Settings.
You can choose a Wide or Narrow banner layout. If you are using your current website banner, use the narrow layout. For best results, create a new banner sized with the following dimensions in mind:
- The narrow banner size is: 1200px × 235px
- (Recommended!) The wide banner size is: 1800px × 350px
DoJiggy can also create a new banner or convert your current website banner for you.
The results of the new banner options will look like this:
Wide banner option
Narrow banner option
When you select a new theme type, you will also see an Input field at Website -> Settings to add optional text for a website slogan. This slogan text will be displayed on top of the banner image. There are several options explained below as to how you want the slogan text to appear.
