Create your own template with the template designer

To get started click on your initials in the upper right corner, and go to settings -> content templates.

Initials

Next you will find the Designer button in the upper right part of the page

Designer button

Then by clicking on the + icon you create a new template and can give it a name before you move onto the part where you actually design it

Create a new template

Then lets go ahead and click on the template you just created, in this case I called mine “Template for the guide”

Clicking on the template

The designer will then pop up, and you can see that there are 6 different tabs in the designer. The first tab is where you decide the layout for the base of the template such as width, background colors, and margin settings.

NOTE! When you do changes to the template is updates in the preview automatically

Template layout settings

Then we move to the next tab where we can define the header and the footer information including the hero image and logo. Custobar will also later add different kind of header / footer styles to choose from. To get the URL for the Hero image you can upload that to your image library by going to campaign in the navigation bar and there click on Image library.

Header and footer

On the third tab you get to define the layout for your modules such as fonts, background colors, price colors and so on

NOTE ! If you wish to use custom fonts then scroll all the way down to the end of this guide to see how they are added

Modules

**NOTE ! On the module tab if you click on a specific module, you get to edit that specific modules settings. You can see which module you are editing on the right side toolbar.

**Specific module

Moving forward on the tabs next one up is where you get to define the layout settings for all the headers on the template, so when using a header module or a text module you will use these headers.

Headers

Next up is the buttons. So here on this tab you define the sizing and the layouts for all of your Call-to-action buttons.

Call-to-action buttons

The last tab on the designer is where you define your custom fonts if you wish to use those. You add the fonts name and the family of the font and then the url from which the font is fetched. We have the Lato font there by default as a guide on how to do it

Custom fonts

When you feel like you are ready with the template, then you can go ahead and click on the Publish button. And while you build your template you can always click on save to save your progress and continue later
