You can learn the following in this article:

Getting Started with a Blank Template

First off, you'll need to select the Blank Template through your dashboard. Follow the steps below to get started:

  1. Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
  2. Click the SELECT TEMPLATE button under My Sites or click TEMPLATES from the left-side menu.
  3. Under the All category, click VIEW TEMPLATE of the BLANK option to view the black template.
  4. To use the template, click the CREATE THIS SITE button at the top-right corner of the page.
  5. You will now be routed to the Sitebeat Editor.

The fastest way you can build your website is by exploring the ready-made section layouts, which are called Blocks.

Adding Blocks

Build your page one section at a time with Blocks. You'll find website section layouts for your Menu, Banner, Gallery, Testimonials, Footer, and more when you access the Blocks Library.

On your Sitebeat Editor, click BUILD from the left-side menu, and then click the BLOCKS tab. You can now view the Blocks Library.

Explore the different layouts you can drag and drop onto your blank template and see your ideal website come to life.

Customising the Theme

The Theme option allows you to further customise the look of your website by setting the default Colors, Fonts, Button designs, and more. This is important when you're building your brand. You need to establish the look that you want your visitors to recognise automatically as you.

On the Sitebeat Editor, click THEME from the left-side menu, and then check out the guide below for more details:

When you deal with your theme before you expand your content, you can save a lot of time when you do not apply the same fonts and colors on every feature you add.

Adding Features

While blocks help you build a website fast from scratch, you can also customise each element within a block or add more when you access the Features library.

Click BUILD, and then click the FEATURES tab. Drag and drop one on your page to add it.

A feature is a ready-made layout element that you can use to build custom, professional-looking website pages in Sitebeat. In the library, you'll find Text, Heading, Photo, Video, and Buttons features, among others.
