Figure 3.2 Full width

The center width setting lets you set the center width of the content to either 1000px, 1280px or 1440px.

A center width of 1000px looks like Figure 4.1.

Figure 4.1 A center width of 1000px

A center width of 1280px looks like Figure 4.2.

Figure 4.2 A center width of 1280px

Lastly, a center width of 1440px looks like Figure 4.3.

The brand color settings (Figure 5.3) let you select up to five colors. These five colors are saved in a color swatch, which is reused for all settings regarding colors, both in website settings and in content setup.

Read about the color swatch and all its settings here.

Figure 5.3 Brand colors

You can define a seperate background color for a page. This overrides the website settings for background color and background image settings.

Go to the Content area and open your page. Click Properties in the ribbon bar (Figure 6.1).

  • Show breadcrumb
  • Change background color for the product catalog
Figure 6.2 The General section

The settings above will produce the following layout for the page (Figure 6.3) - in this case for the product catalog page.

You have the breadcrumb (1) at the top, the left menu tree to the left of the products (2), and the background color is the preset brand color four.

  • Background color is the color used behind the logo

The Favicon is used in the browser tab.

The Header section includes quite a lot of subsections of website settings. In the menu to the right, you can get an overview of the different sections inside Header (the names are the same as in the website settings).

With the settings in the Header section, you can configure things like:

  • The top layout (and the Extra top area for selected top layouts)
  • Tools menu
  • Navigation type (dropdown / megamenu) & layout
  • Sign in dropdown

The top layout in Rapido has nine configuration options; normal, condensed, splitted, splitted centered, minimal, minimal centered, minimal right, two lines & two lines centered.

The normal top layout (Figure 9.1) consists of:

  • Bar 2: The navigation menu
Figure 9.1 Normal top layout

The condensed top layout (Figure 9.2) consists of:

  • Bar 1: Company Logo, the navigation menu, and icons
  • Bar 2: Search field
Figure 9.2 Condensed top layout

The splitted top layout (Figure 9.3) consists of:

  • Bar 1: Company logo and search field - this is an extra top area which has separate color options

Figure 12.1 Sticky top setting

When Sticky top is disabled, the top (including the mini cart) will remain at the top of the page and disappear when scrolling down.

When scrolling down the product list, a new mini cart will therefore appear at the side on big devices (Figure 12.2).

Figure 12.2 A mini cart at the side of the product list on big devices

The Tools menu website settings enables you to render the website's pages in a bar at the top. The contents from the previous Product section then fills out the navigation bar (Figure 13.1). You can also add some toolbar text, which will appear to the left in the tools menu.
