    • How do I to set the same background color or image for an entire page on my Website Builder?

      Depending on which template you are on and your settings, you may not be able to see very much of your new background color or image.

If you have any other background colors or images selected for other sections of your website, you will only be able to see part of the page background. You can remove these other backgrounds by clicking on "Background" in each section of the style editor and then clicking the "Trash" icon. This will remove the background color or image and make it transparent, so you can see the main background you set. Click "Save" at the top to save your changes. We recommend using an image that is between 1200-1500 pixels for the entire page background. If you are having trouble uploading your background image, this could be why your image will not upload.

    • What is image alt text?

      Image alt text has a couple of uses. Basically, it's an opportunity to put into words what the image is and it's function on the page. This is helpful to both users and to Google and other search engines, which is why we have added an easy way to enter image alt text for images on our website builder. From a user standpoint, alt text is what shows in place of an image if they have images turned off on their web browser or are unable to see images for any other reason. For Google and other search engines, it helps them index the image, so it can be found based on the keywords you use in your image alt text. However, keep in mind that alt text best practices should mean that you're using relevant keywords to what is actually in the image and it's purpose on your website. If you would like more information about image alt text and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) best practices, we doing some research online as there are many great resources out there.
