Site Setup Block

Each site has a site-setup block in the list of assets in the navigation panel.

This block gives your site a name, adds optional sidebar content and populates your footer. The two sections you may edit are: Sidebar and Footer.

Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs appear below your site name and function as an additional form of navigation. The breadcrumb links appear automatically on your site. In most cases, this field should remain blank.

If you would a sidebar (or multiple sidebars) to appear on every page of your site, you can do so by creating sidebar content in the site-setup block. Common uses might be a contact info block or an apply button.

The footer is the dark gray area at the very bottom of your site. To edit the content, expand the Footer tab and the appropriate Footer >> Content Column.

Note: Anytime you update your site setup block, you must republish your site's folder from the _includes site for the changes to appear live.
