Header and footer sections are vital pieces to your website. It is one of the first things a viewer looks at when visiting a site. The header is located at the very top of each page and the footer is located at the bottom of each page. These sections typically contain contact information, phone numbers, business logo, hours of operation, address, social media links, site navigation and some type of call to action. Basically, any important information you want the viewer to have quick access to after only being on your website for a few seconds. 

How long do users stay on your website before clicking away? Most stick around less than 15 seconds.That’s how long you have to capture someone’s attention or provide them necessary information they are looking for on your website. So, if you don’t have the information they are looking for at a glance, you’ve lost them.

The header section is located at the top of every page and any information placed in the header will display on each page. Avoid placing information that is specific to the pages content and keep it more geared around general business information. 



The footer section is located at the bottom of each page. Popular elements in the footer usually include links to privacy policies, copy right info and social media links.




Both sections can be fully customized just like any other section on the site with the section settings.

Hello,

WebsiteBuilder does not allow any uploads of templates or themes. It is a proprietary builder and the header will need to be built with the available elements.

Website Builder. Is it possible to have ONE page that does not contain a header or footer? I am trying to create a page that acts like a Link.tree (to use on Instagram). I did this on the old sitebuilder and titled it Learn More. It had buttons with links to YouTube, Our Story, and maybe a specific page about the artists of the month. I created a clean, simple look with just the buttons. It was a great link to have in my Instagram bio that still brought people to my various sites without looking like just another webpage.

Hello,

I apologize, it is not possible to have the header disabled on only one page. To achieve this you can use a content section that has the same information across all pages except the one that you do not want the header to display on. Then on that page use the text and or buttons to add the links.

Oh. But then I would have to separately add the exact content page (pretending to be a header) to ALL the pages except one? Is it possible to "hide" the header on one page? Like, make all the elements in the header invisible on just one page?

Yes, that would need to be done, a quick way to do this is use the header to hold the elements and use the duplicate element option to move it down into the content section and when its added to the pages delete the header. Unfortunately nothing in the header can be edited separately on one page only, all changes will reflect on all pages.

Ok. Thank you. Too bad. That was a nice option in Sitebuilder.
