    If this is your first time viewing layouts you will only see your Default Layout. We suggest editing this layout first before adding another layout to your account.

  5. In the Layout tab you are able to edit all areas of your layout.
    • Layout Name
    • Site Name
    • Departments
      • Choose the departments this layout is assigned to. Members of this department are able to access this layout via your site URL or Custom Domain.

         
    • URL & Domain

      • Text Color

        Note: If your image does not fill the entire background you can select how you would like the image to display by repeating.
      • Color
      • Height 

        Tithely Tip

        The default height will be set at 80px we recommend either 80px or 120px depending on the height of your background image. If you would like to display more of your background image experiment with increasing the height by increments of 10px.

    • Admin Area
      • Upload Logo
      • Change Menu Color
    • Login Page

    • Log Out Page
      • Enter a redirect page or leave empty.
        Note: When your members log out, enter the web page you would like them to be redirected. Leaving this blank will redirect them to your login page.
