Theme

The Theme tab allows you to select the design of your site.  All pages within a theme have a similar layout with colors, fonts, navigation, buttons, graphics and content all coordinated to present a pleasing and consistent aesthetic to your site visitors.  We recommend you select each theme and preview your site to see how it looks until you find the theme that best meets your needs.

Please note the images shown are for example purposes only and the theme may vary slightly in appearance on your site.  Also, if you are not subscribed to MLSLI IDX Search, the Quick Search box will not be displayed on any theme on your site.  MLS Customer Service can provide information about the MLSLI IDX Search feature when you activate your site.

Header Image

The Image tab allows you to select the image to be displayed at the top of your site.  We have provided an array of photos from which you can make this selection.  We recommend you select several images and preview your site to see how it looks until you find the image that makes your site look the most attractive.

Colors

The Color tab allows you to select a color scheme for your site.  We have provided several color combinations from which you can make this selection.  We recommend you select several color schemes and preview your site to see how it looks until you find the scheme that makes your site look the most attractive when combined with your theme and header image.

Please note the preview image shown is for example purposes only to give you a general sense as to how your site will appear using the selected color scheme.  The theme may vary slightly in appearance on your site so please be sure to preview your site after making a selection to see the full effect of the chosen color scheme.

Pages

The Pages tab allows you to select the pages that will appear on your site as well as their names and order of appearance.

A checked box next to a page name means the page will show on your site.  Unchecking a box will hide the corresponding page from your site (its content will remain unaffected and still available to you in case you decide to add it back to your site later).  Clicking thei_buttonbutton next to a page name will display information about the page and examples related to its usage.

  • Custom Pages allow you to add content to your site beyond the previously mentioned pages provided by MLSLI.  You may add up to nine Custom Pages.  Custom Pages may contain any content of your choice and are edited in the same manner as the Home page which is described in the Details section of this Help document.

Order and Rename Menu

  • Drag and drop the page titles shown to order them the way you want them to appear on your site.  The page titles will appear as menu selection at the top of your page for easy navigation by your site visitors.
  • If you would like one of the menus to contain other pages, you can do so by indenting the page title beneath another page title (drag the page title to the right to indent and drag the page title to the left to remove the indentation).
