Overview

Styling and Features

Creating a style guide for your website will prove to be invaluable in the future. A style guide will help you to address usability, the user experience, design consistency, and online trends in an organized and consistent manner.

The Avada Website Builder has a vast array of features and styling options; however, you do not need to use all of them for your website, and this is where your style guide comes in. Decide upfront which styling options align with your brand and which design features are needed to make your website stand out.

Color increases brand recognition, and it can influence people in how they feel about a website. Colors produce different emotions in people, making it essential to choose the right colors for your website. The balance of white space, contrast, and well thought out color schemes are vital elements of good web design. If you have not already decided on your brand colors, choosing a color palette for your website can be confusing. However, using a handy tool like the Adobe Color Wheel or any of the myriad of app choices online, you can undoubtedly make this task effortless.

To Get Started You Will Need The Following

To get started with the Avada Website Builder and to create your ideal website, there are a few things that you will need;

Required Plugins

What are required plugins, and do you need them? In short, it is not the end of the world if you choose not to install and activate the plugins used with any particular Avada prebuilt website. Let’s take the Avada Financial Advisor prebuilt website for example: This prebuilt website was built without using any of the Avada bundled plugins.

When an Avada prebuilt website is built without using bundled plugins, you can still install and activate any of them, should it be needed for your website. Any of the prebuilt websites can be modified to fit your project needs.

World-Class Support And Resources

Many facets set the Avada Website Builder apart from the competition. None more important is that Avada is not reliant on 3rd party builders and tools to deliver a stable and seamless website building experience. No waiting for external developers and toolset creators to deliver the next update for your theme. We take pride in the fact that Avada is 100% maintained, evolved, and developed according to strict WordPress and PHP coding standards.

Website Structure

A page or post structure is divided into four main sections: the Header, the Page Title Bar, Content, and the Footer. With the Avada Website Builder, you can independently edit each of these sections to create super flexible and stunning layout designs.

Below is a list of the Avada Financial Advisor pages and posts that have been prebuilt just for you. Once installed, you can change all aspects of each Layout, and at any time, add new pages to suit your online business needs.

Explaining Layouts & Layout Sections

Before we look at the specific Layouts on the Avada Financial Advisor prebuilt website, the first thing to understand is the Layouts and Layout Sections’ architecture. You can think of Layouts as a container for the page content. In contrast, the actual content comes from the various Layout Sections. There are four Layout Sections on a page – the Header, Page Title Bar, Content, and Footer Layout Sections.

There is a default Global Layout, and any Layout Sections added to that will be shown on all pages of your website. There are Conditional Layouts with conditional logic to determine how the Layout will be used.

You can make as many Layouts and Layout Sections as you like, and you can use the Layout Sections in multiple Layouts. But you can only use a specific condition on a single Layout, so the theme knows which one to use.

See Understanding Layouts & Layout Sections and Understanding Conditional Layouts for more info.

Avada Layouts

Explaining WordPress Pages vs. Posts

Website pages are allocated for static content such as your website’s homepage, about, contact page, and so on, and are timeless entities.

Website posts are allocated to blog content listed in reverse (newest to the oldest) chronological order and are timely. Older posts are archived based on month and year. You can also create content for custom post types or CPT. In Avada, an example of this is the Portfolio post type. Check out this detailed WordPress article for more information.

What Can I Change? Is the Design Flexible?

The Avada Financial Advisor prebuilt website is exactly that, prebuilt, for you. If the design and style suit your website needs, you can use it as a starting point, and you can change as much or as little as you need to.

The most obvious details that you will want to change at first is the website’s wording, titles, color scheme, and images. You can choose to leave the overall layouts as is or Drag and Drop to rearrange the content’s order. Further to that, you can add or remove any of the Design Elements to fine-tune your preferred business narrative. In short, you can change every single aspect of the prebuilt website’s Layout and content.

Editing a page’s content and layouts is done using the Drag and Drop live editor or using the traditional back-end method. The first image below shows the Live visual Drag and Drop editor is used to edit the content:

A Side By Side Comparison

We have created a side by side point of reference that illustrates the differences in building a website using the Avada Website Builder to design custom Layouts vs. not using The Avada Website Builder and only using predefined options. The latter will allow you only to build a basic site, in comparison.

Exploring The Homepage Layout

The Header

For the Avada Financial Advisor prebuilt website, the Header was created using the Avada Header Builder and is set globally across the website. This means that every page and post will use the same Header layout without any further conditions set. For example, you can change this if required by creating a unique Header layout for different pages or posts. You can check how this is structured on the backend by clicking this link.

The Page Content

The content part of the homepage, the area between the Header and Footer, does not use a page title bar. You can change this page’s content in an infinite number of ways to best suit your business marketing and brand requirements.

Page and Post content is structured using Container and Column Elements, and if required, Nested Columns. Check out the help file links below for detailed information and videos explaining what they are and how to use them:

The Hero

Avada Virtual Assistant Hero

Instead of using a traditional image slider, like the Avada Slider, Slider Revolution or Layer Slider, as the above-the-fold hero section, this prebuilt site uses a Custom Page Title Bar Layout. It is built using a Container with a Background Color and one 80% width Column. The Column contains Title Elements, Text Block Elements, Separator Elements, and a Nested Columns Element holding a single 1/1 (100% width) Column with the Avada Forms Element. You can check how this is structured on the backend by clicking this link.

The Avada Form Builder is used to design and build this callback form. The Form Builder is very flexible and allows you to create many types of forms that you can use on your Avada website. For any form that you create, you can add them to a page or post as a single instance or you can set the form to display globally across the website, which then allows you to manage one form. If a form is showing on all pages, for example, and you edit the form, the same changes show across all form instances.

A website footer aims to help visitors by providing appropriate information and navigation options at the bottom of website pages. Website footer design is underrated and more valuable to your website than you may think and is essential to the overall end-user experience. Three key points stand out, namely:

  • A footer should provide a website visitor with additional choices. If you want people to sign up for your mailing list, view a product demo, or contact you, inviting them at the end of a scroll is a compelling call to action.
  • A footer should create a path for continued engagement by including navigation links to products, services, or other parts of your website.
  • A footer can access essential information like ways to contact your company and customer services, privacy statements, and potential legal disclaimers.

For the Avada Financial Advisor prebuilt website, the Footer was created using the Avada Footer Builder and this particular Footer content and Layout is set to display globally across the website. This means that every page and post will use the same Footer layout without any further conditions set. For example, you can change this if required by creating a unique Footer layout for different pages or posts. Let us take a closer look below:
