You can send any combination of the following types of content for your website. In addition, you will be able to edit, add and delete all of these different types of content yourself later when you are editing the site.
To illustrate the range of content, we have used a very simple test website for an imaginary cafe called "Single Shot Espresso".
The content types include:
Your Singlepage website can display:
One of these will be set up when your Singlepage website is built. You will be able to switch between site name and logo yourself if required whenever you like.
If you don't want to use a logo, the site name will be displayed as text in the same font used for headings.
Here, the site name has been replaced by a simple logo i.e. an image file. This can be uploaded to the site as a .jpg, .gif or .png file.
Blocks of text can be added, as shown here for the main text describing this business's activities. Several text blocks can be added if required in various positions. The amount of text needs to be enough to communicate your key messages without boring your audience!
Here a block of text is used in a banner position across the top of the page to highlight a key message. This banner text block could alternatively have been placed in a banner position at the bottom of the page.
"A picture is worth a thousand words" - photos have the power to communicate a lot about your business, including some less tangible aspects like quality. They can break up long blocks of text and make your site much more interesting.
Photos can be automatically resized to a "letterbox" shape when uploaded for use specifically in banner positions at the top and bottom of the page.
Slideshows run automatically when the web page loads to show a series of photos. The user can also click backwards and forwards through the slides. Captions can be overlaid on the slides. Slides can be advanced on tablets and mobiles using "swipe" gestures.
Slides can be automatically resized to a "letterbox" shape when uploaded for use specifically in banner positions at the top and bottom of the page. Again, captions can be overlaid.
Photo galleries are a great way to present a range of photos on your site. They display originally as a grid of thumbnail images; click on any thumbnail to display a large version of the image.
The large versions of gallery images are displayed at full-screen size. Users can click the slideshow button to play through all the gallery images as a slideshow or click next and previous buttons. "Swipe" gestures can be used on tablets and mobiles to advance through the gallery.
Captions can be displayed for the large versions of gallery photos. They are visible when the user clicks on the large image; and they hide automatically after a few seconds.
Videos hosted at YouTube or similar sites can be embedded in the website.
Videos can be embedded in any position on the web page. Here a video is in the narrower, right-hand column - a "secondary" position.
A Google map is a great way of displaying your location. The user can zoom in and out, switch to satellite view or switch to street view - all on your website. Maps are very easy to set up in the website admin back-end - just enter an address. And you can even manually move the map marker to put it in the correct position.
Maps can be embedded in any position on the page.
Modules are little blocks of content. They can be displayed in any position on the website but are often placed in the right-hand column or secondary position. They can all be given a similar style - for example, headings can be white reversed out of a solid colour and can have icons displayed beside them.
A contact form can be added to your Singlepage website. This will email enquiries to you; and you can also view the enquiries by logging into the website. An envelope icon is displayed beside the heading - but other icons such as a telephone, mobile or Skype icon could be used instead.
Modules can cover a wide range of uses. Here the top module is a "Latest news" module with a bullhorn icon; the second one is a "Testimonials" or "What our customers say" module with a speech bubble icon. These and many other similar modules can be created using the same basic module template. Examples include "Special offers", "Opening hours" and seasonal or holiday messages.
Share buttons enable your website users to share a link to your website with their friends. Your business does not need any social network accounts to make use of these - the buttons just make it easier for users to share links amongst themselves when they are logged in to social networks.
If you have accounts for your business with social networks like Facebook and Twitter, you can add "follow" buttons - so your users can click through from your website to your Facebook or Twitter page.
