2. Base structure of the template
The template has the following base structure which is applied to each of the screens of the promotion – in both mobile and desktop versions of the platform:
- Header: This has a fixed height of 36px and is always visible. It’s composed of three elements: on the left, a mobile-style dropdown menu, and on the right, the share button and the brand’s social media buttons. These buttons can be configured from the My Networks module.
In the central area, there are two elements that will define the style of your promotion: the background and the main container:
- The background: This is the same for all pages of the promotion. In the mobile version, this background adapts optimally, instead of disappearing.
- The main container: This is displayed on top of the background and is where the contents of each page of the promotion are included: header images, promotion texts, photos, videos, questions, and so on.
2. Main setup screens
The design template is enabled by default in all types of applications created with the Basic, Premium and White Label versions. In addition, for promotions created with the Premium and White Label versions, you will have the possibility to configure the different elements of the template to customize the design to your liking.
Note: The configuration of the different elements of the template is not included by default in the promotions created with the Basic version. It can be added to the promotion as an extension for $ 19USD / € 19.
