One is such a lonely number. That’s why today we’re thrilled to announce the release of one of our most requested features: Backgrounds Per Page. You can now easily create a unique background for each page of your Jimdo website.
Who knew one small change to our Background editor could make such a big difference to your website? Whether you stick to one background or fifty, our intuitive Background editor means you’re in complete control, and you can easily change your backgrounds in a matter of minutes.
What if you decide you want only one background for all of your pages? In the Background editor, select the image/color/slideshow you want and select ‘Use this background for all pages’.
You’ll then be able to choose the style of background you want: photo, slideshow, video, or color.
The Template Preview Mode automatically appears when you choose a new background. This allows you to immediately see how the background will look.
The first background is set as a default for the background for all pages, but every following background added to the Background editor can be set as an individual background page.
What if you want to set one video as a background for every page of your website? The button ‘Use this background for all pages’ is not supported for video with Backgrounds Per Page. Instead, you simply need to set the video as a background for every page of your website.
When choosing background images for your website, there is a lot to think about, like placement, dimension, and file size. You can find all the information you need on how to optimize images on your website in our Support Center.
Choose images that are of high resolution (2000 pixels wide is best) and make sure those images are in landscape mode, not in portrait mode.
We hope you’re as enthusiastic as us about the new addition of Backgrounds Per Page to your Background editor. We always welcome your feedback, so please let us know how you’ll be using Backgrounds Per Page in your website in the comments below. Questions? Let us know in the comments or contact our Support Center.
