How do I make changes to my site design?

 

Blipteam provides you a number of “themes” to choose from in the 'Site Settings' / 'Design' section. You can change your theme with a single click, as many times as you want, whenever you want. You can also customise your theme by changing your layout, colors and fonts, all with a single click. Our design engine has been built for business users who may not possess advanced design skills - all you have to do is click a button and our design engine does the rest. All Blipteam themes support the same web functions, so you will not lose any functionality when switching. Changing back is easy, too. Just click your old theme and your site will go back to your previous design.

How do Blipteam software updates impact my website design?

 

Any updates made to your theme is automatically reflected on your live site, you do not have to do a thing. We may upgrade themes to accommodate design and technical features from time-to-time but we will do so without disturbing your general site design and functionality.

Where can I get a logo designed for my site?

It deals with all the issues involved in creating an identity design for your online business and places where you can hire designers, writers and other online professionals. Fiverr has many designers, writers and marketing pros available at good rates.

How do I create a nice animated graphic for my home page?

 

Creating an animated banner for your home page (or any of your product/listing pages) is as simple as uploading a number of images and text captions. Our design engine does the rest. As soon as you upload more than one banner image in any of your galleries, an animated banner is automatically created. You can also enter text captions with each image. Sometimes you may need to crop images accurately (2000 x 1500 pixels) so they fit in perfectly with our themes. Or you may need to lay some nice graphics on your images. At this point you need to get some professional help and you should - you can end up with a set of ghastly-looking images very easily if you have no experience in prepping images for the web. Just find a pro on Fiverr who can create some banners for you at a good price.

How do I create a photo gallery?

 

You can upload multiple images on the home page banner or on any of your product/listing pages. Just make sure your images are 2000 x 1500 pixels or bigger. You can also enter text captions with each image.

What should be the size of my images?

 

The Blipteam Design Engine converts all uploaded images to 2000 x 1500 pixels. It is recommended that you upload images at least this size or bigger. Smaller images, when stretched out to banner size, will probably get pixelated and not display properly. Check your image dimensions before upload. Raw images from most smart phones are okay to upload to Blipteam. Try and upload horizontal (or landscape) images to Blipteam – vertical (or portrait) don’t work so well. Our app has detailed guides for image cropping with diagrams.
