5 features you may have missed

Tips & Tricks

June 15, 2017

We hope that you've come far into building your site and that you start feeling like you master Portfoliobox. Even if we try to keep everything crystal clear and intuitive, some settings are less apparent. Here are five features that you may have missed about Portfoliobox. 

1. Set colors and fonts on your entire website at once

You can fine-tune your website and choose specific colors and fonts for every element of your Portfoliobox website: menu, logo, text, headers, links, etc. Or you can opt for the quick and easy way and change all of them at once by choosing one of the preset combos we've prepared for you. Go to Colors and Fonts and click on Color Scheme or Font combo. 

 

2. Move images from one gallery to another

You have uploaded photos to a gallery but think some of them would fit better in a different one. You don't actually need to manually delete them and upload them again — we've saved you some time and made it effortless. Select the images that you wish to transfer and choose the new gallery under the drop-down menu Move to gallery. 

 

3. Set a logo for the mobile version

All the templates are made to be responsive — that means that templates are made to fit screens in the best possible way. When it comes to your logo, you need to decide whether you want to display another version of your logo on mobile devices. Sometimes a text logo can appear too small to read on a smaller screen. You can, therefore, choose to upload an image or edit the size of your current text logo on mobile device. You do that by clicking on Logo → Mobile logo.

4. Set a style to the menu active link

The active menu link is the page the visitor is currently visiting. You can choose to highlight it by setting a colour and a style (bold, italic, underline). It helps the visitor keeping track of where he is on your website. You find if under Colors and fonts → Menu → Menu active link. Watch the video below to learn how to edit it. 

 

5. Menu Background image

Did you know that you can set a background image for your menu, if you use a layout with a menu box?  Go to Colors and Fonts → Menu → Menu background image and upload an image. Note that the left part of the image will display so you may have to adjust the image before uploading it.
