Changing the Site's Style/Design

Impress.ly offers efficient yet in-depth control of the design of your site. Within Impress.ly's "Style" section you can influence design settings for Skins, Navigation, Background, Header, Colors, Font, Shape, and even Animation. If you're making an site on the fly, Impress.ly will take care of most of this stuff for you instantly. Spending a few extra minutes making some design changes can elevate your site to the next level. The design features that can be changed will be detailed here:

  • Skins: A skin is a complete design package for your site. Select a different skin to activate a completely different set of design changes in your site.
  • Navigation: Navigation refers to the icon layout of your Home page and the behaviour of these icons.
  • Background: Change the background (color/image) of the homescreen. The colors will be automagically adjusted according to the colors of the new background.
  • Header: Change the way the top part of the homescreen looks. Use the site name, logo or none of these to create the best looking site.
  • Colors: Select a color palette for your site that matches your background.
  • Font: The Header font is used for your site title on the homescreen, the Menu font is used for the items on the homescreen and the Body font is used for the rest of the texts.
  • Shape: Change the shape of design flourishes used in your site.
  • Animation: Change the way animations will be used in your site and what kind of animations you prefer.
