Make Open Social feel like home!
Open Social has the same look and feel for everyone when it's first installed. This is normal for a Software-as-a-Service product but there are several things you can adjust so your community matches your personal brand or taste.
Logo, favicon, and site name
First step: customise your site default email address and site name, which shown in the browser tab and in the automated emails, for example.
Also, upload the icon (=favicon!) that you want to show in the browser tab:
Last but not least, you can upload a logo that is shown in the top menu and in the automated emails. Want to upload a logo that's different than the one used in the emails? That is also possible :)
Colours and styling
To give your Open Social a more branded/personal look and feel you can change several things:
- The color of the buttons, links, and background.
- The font used on the site. You can even upload your own font!
- The style of the corners of the content blocks. For example, giving less round corners to the card and buttons will give your site a more formal look, compared to round ones.
Create a warm and welcoming homepage
The homepage is the first page that most visitors see. Make use of the block that is visible on the homepage by writing a welcoming text and uploading a nice sphere image.
This block contains two call-to-action buttons which you can use to point the user to specific places (registration page) or to highlight news or other important content.
