Trendy Basic Site

When you open it up, you will be asked to provide a title. This is what the browser will display in the tab. For reference, when you are on Hostwinds.com the title displays as ?Hostwinds Web Hosting ?.


For this example I used ?My Store?.

****Be sure to save every few steps so you don?t lose any progress due to a crashing browser, or any other event that could take you away from the site.



First thing we are going to do is choose our design. For this you can go up to the select design tab. This will give you the option to change the design of both your outer and inner pages. For this we will be using the basic design for the website.

Now, to change the picture that is set by default, simply click the image and click change image. Chances are you will want to add your own images to the website. For this you simply go to the upload tab. Browse your computer in order to find the image you would like and click upload. Trendy Builder will take a moment to update.

In order to add an an image you will want to look at the left of the screen click the image and drop it in. It will have a default image and border, the same way that was said earlier is how you will change it.?

To add text simply follow the steps for an image but drag the paragraph.



Now, to add a link with Trendy Site Builder you do not need to know how to use HTML (Though if you do you can do a few more tricks with the embed HTML code). The steps are rather simple.


Step one. Add a paragraph.

Step two. Change the text?

Step three highlight the text.

Step four. Click the link to page.

?

Step five. Look at the link, make sure the color was changed by the linking system AND that it is now underlined.

Step six, modify the font and color to your likings.

And that?s the six simple steps to a link.


You now know the basics for setting up a website using trendy site builder. You can now build a great looking website without having to pay someone to design it, or having to build it all yourself from scratch.
