Changing Site Background

Background is the area behind your website content. You can use color, images or textures to customize your site background. To get started, select the Background option under the Design & Layout area of the Website Builder Tool.

Use the Color option in the drop-down menu to choose a different background color. Select from the pre-defined colors or if you know the hexadecimal value for the color that you want to use, enter it in the box. Experiment with your background colors to see what works best for your site. Once you have decided on a color, click the green checkbox at the bottom to make your selection. If you do not like the color that you selected, you can revert back to the original background color by selecting the Default color option in the Site Color Scheme drop-down menu.

Click the Image option in the Background menu to select an image to use as your site background. Use the Insert You Background Image popup to:

  • Upload an image file from your computer
  • Select from files that you have stored in the Website Builder Tool
  • Choose from our library of free images
  • Apply the default background image that comes with the design template that you chose for your site
  • Remove the background image using the Do not display a background image option in the drop-down list

If you select a different color or image using the Background options under the Design & Layout tab, you will be prompted to apply the changes to the current page or entire website. In general, it is a good idea to keep the background treatment consistent across all pages of your site.
