Font modifiers

Font Modifiers allow you to increase or decrease the size of the text from its default size (set at 0) for your Site Title, Navigation, and Pages. This is most helpful when selecting fonts that render at small sizes.

Contact menu label

Under Site Settings > Template Settings enter the desired label for the button that opens the contact form.

Menu link

Glowmont allows for a link to be placed on the main menu. Under Site Settings > Template Settings enter a link label and url setting in the Menu link label and Menu link url fields. The label is used for the menu item text, and the url is used for the link attached to the menu item.


Slideshow speed

Under Site Settings > Template Settings enter the amount of time in seconds an image should display in intro and gallery slideshows before loading the next image.

Image Border Thickness

This setting controls the thickness of gallery and home image borders. Use the slider under Site Settings > Template Settings to increase or decrease the size of image borders. Setting the image border to 0 will remove image borders.


Video

Because Glowmont is an HTML site, you can embed youtube, vimeo, and other third party video players. Simply paste embed code on a page using the simple text editor when editing a page. The simple text editor can be accessed from the simple text editor link under the rich text editor when editing a page.
