Getting Started with Format
There are 3 main areas you will need to use to set up your Format site.
You can see these at the top of your Dashboard when you log in.
Let’s look at each below...
Pages is where you add and organize your content.
On the left sidebar you can add and re-order your site’s Pages. This order is how Visible Pages will appear on your site’s navigation menu. You can re-order a Page by clicking and grabbing the Page and dragging it up or down to the preferred spot.
If you click on a Page you can edit its content and settings on the right.

Design is where you can customize the look of your site. This is also where you can add content that will appear site-wide such as a custom logo or footer text.
All changes are made on the left and previewed on the right before being applied to your site.
We have a guide on using the Design Editor here.
