There are four major areas of layout control under Site Settings > Layout Settings. You can use the preview button at the bottom of this page to view different layout configurations without affecting the current layout of the site.
Choose from left (vertical), top (horizontal), or right (vertical). Both the left and right menus feature accordion style submenus. The top menu features a drop down menu that activates when the mouse hovers over the parent item or when the parent item is tapped on touch screens.
Each menu position is affected by text alignment settings. Left and right menu positions can align the text left, right, and center. The top menu position can align text on either the left or the right.
There are five gallery modes available. Single shows images one at a time and uses a crossfade transition when transitioning from image to image. Horizontal displays all gallery images on a horizontally scrolling plane. Vertical displays all gallery images on a vertically scrolling plane. Fullscreen mode makes gallery images fill the available window space. Masonry mode sets the galleries as a large, fluid layout of thumbnails.
There are five thumbnail modes available. Bottom displays thumbnails horizontally below the main content area. Left displays thumbnails vertically to the left of the main content area. Right displays thumbnails vertically to the right of the main content area. Overlay displays a grid larger thumbnails over the main content area when the thumbnail button in the footer is clicked. None removes the thumbnails from the site.
Rubix allows robust control over the margins of every major element of the site. There are slider controls for the top, bottom, left, and right, margins of the logo, menu, images (intro & gallery), pages, and footer under Site Settings > Template Settings. New installations leave these settings blank and will automatically adjust depending on the layout choices. Use these sliders to further refine the margins of each element. Once a margin setting is defined, it will override any of the default settings. *Please note that all settings are relative to the main container. If the browser window is larger than the container width or height, the container will center vertically.
These settings control the maximum width and height of the content container. The container scales to fit within the available window space if the window is smaller than the values set for the content width and height.
Use the slider under Site Settings > Template Settings to adjust the opacity of the main container. Setting the container opacity to 0 will make it completely transparent. Setting the container opacity to 100 will make it completely opaque. *Please note that container opacity does not affect the container on the mobile site.
The mobile version of the site can be activated at a designated browser window width. The default width that will trigger the mobile site is 700 pixels. This will target smartphones and small tablets. This setting can be adjusted in Site Settings > Template Settings using the Mobile width slider setting.
Under the Images > Galleries section you are now able to toggle on the lightbox option for each gallery. This will allow clients to choose images to save to a lightbox and then download a PDF file for review.
Under Images > Home/Intro upload images for the intro or background image that appears when your site opens. Press the upload images button select a new image to upload. Intro images should be optimized and sized according to the template image specifications. Drag and drop the images to reorder them. Press the delete button on the right of each image to delete an image.
To make a page redirect to an external link select redirect from the page type setting when editing a page. Enter the desired URL in the URL field.
By default, categories are displayed on the main menu with a submenu listing each category’s galleries below. To disable the gallery submenus and show an index page of the galleries associated with each category, switch the Gallery index pages setting to “On” under Site Settings > Template Settings. The default thumbnail sizes for the gallery index pages is 225 pixels by 150 pixels with 10 pixels of padding between each thumbnail. The gallery index thumbnail width, height, and padding can be adjusted under Site Settings > Template Settings as well.
MP3s are uploaded into the music area under Site Settings.
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.
Under Site Settings > Template Settings select ‘on’ to have the gallery slide show auto start when entering a gallery.
Upload an image for the background texture under Site Settings > Texture. Press the upload texture button under Texture and select a new image to upload. Texture images should be sized to a minimum of 1440 x 960 pixels. To remove the texture press the delete button to the right of the image. Please note that textures do not show on the mobile site.
***Textures are an easy way to set your site apart and give it depth. We have an incredible set of texture packs to choose from created directly by our developers for you HERE.
Under Site Settings > Template Settings enter the desired label for the button that holds all top-level pages as sub menu items if Condense pages is turned on.
When turned on, this setting condenses all top-level pages under one menu item using the value entered into the Pages menu label setting.
Under Site Settings > Template Settings enter the desired label for the button that opens the contact form.
This setting controls the maximum width that a page will occupy. Adjust the slider under Site Settings > Template Settings to increase or decrease the maximum page width.
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.
This setting controls the alignment of the logo.
A good place to start is around 200 pixels wide by 70 pixels tall. If you need the logo bigger/smaller, just resize the logo in your image editing program and then re-upload into the admin under Site Settings > Logo.
Because Rubix HTML5 is an HTML site, you can embed youtube, vimeo, and other third party video players. Simply paste embed code on a page using the text editor when editing a page.
Page redirects can be set to open in the same window as the site by setting the Redirect target under Site Settings > Template Settings to “_self”. This can also be set to target a given window name so all redirects open in a given new window. Otherwise all redirects will open in a new window by default.
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.
This setting controls the amount of space between each gallery image if the gallery mode is set to horizontal or vertical
Under Site Settings > Template Settings, choose “On” to show gallery navigation arrows. Choose “Off” to hide gallery navigation arrows.
