You can configure component properties for use in a site.
Components are the individual parts of a web page, which include text, titles, images, buttons, dividers, maps, galleries, videos, and so on. When you create a design for a theme, you also must specify the default settings for each type of component. Each component has settings — such as size, alignment, spacing, color, and borders — that define how the component looks and behaves. The settings vary based on the component. You also can choose whether a component properties can be changed by users once it is available in a site in a new theme.
As an example, these steps illustrate how you can configure settings for a Paragraph component:
- With your development site open in Edit mode, select a page that has a Paragraph component in it, or add a Paragraph component.
- Click the Paragraph component, then click in the corner of the component, and then choose Settings.
You’ll see a Settings panel displayed where you can make selections for the component.
Note:The settings options are specific to each type of component. If working with local or remote custom components, you’ll see a Custom Settings link.
- For example, you can change the settings for alignment, width, spacing, fonts, style, color, size, and so on. The component appearance changes to the new settings.
- When you’re finished, click . Your settings are applied to the page.
