The LAYOUT tab from the template's settings controls the main layout elements such as body and module positions blocks which can be customized with background images and colors.

This tutorial covers the general settings for our templates. For the settings available for a specific template, please see the DOCS page from the demo of that template.

1) Body

The body element serves as a container for the entire content of the website. Use it to change the design of the entire template, not just a section of the template like the module position blocks. To customize the body element, choose a background image, a background image style, a background image overlay, a background color, text color, title color, link color and link hover color.

2) Notice

3) Slide

The slide element is designed for publishing the slideshow module and the slide images. The most important slide parameter is setting up the maximum width of this module position up to full width (100%). To customize the slide element, choose a background image, a background image style, a background image overlay, a background color, text color, title color, link color and link hover color.

4) Module Position Blocks

The module positions blocks are sections of the template and each one can be customized. If the notice, copyright and slide are special module position blocks with very custom functions, the rest of the module positions can be used for any type of content. Each of these module positions (topbar, intro, lead, promo, prime, showcase, feature, focus, portfolio, screen, top, maintop, mainbottom, bottom, note, base, block, user and footer) have the same set of parameters.

To customize the module positions blocks, choose for each of them a background image, a background image style, a background image overlay, a background color, text color, title color, link color and link hover color.
