The Branding sub tab contains parameters you can use to establish a branding of your site. These parameters include textual or image logo, the site icons and copyright notice.

This feature allows you to convert the first row from your layout into a button. When this button is clicked, the entire content of the row will be revealed by sliding it down. When you click the same button again, the first row would become hidden again.

This feature makes a set of links that increase or decrease the font size of your site from the site's front-end. There’s also a link that resets the font size to default value. The Font Resize feature might be useful if your target visitors are persons with possible vision problems. Also, if you have a lot of text in a small font size, this feature allows visitors to enlarge it when they find it necessary.

Google Analytics is a free service by Google. It gives you a detailed statistics about visitors of your site. To enable this service, you should have a Google Analytics account. Also, you should include a code snippet that’s unique for your site and contains number of your user account. More info about this service on google.com/analytics.

Google Fonts contains a collection of hundreds of fonts. They are hosted on Google’s servers. You can use any of these fonts on your site for free. More info about this service on fonts.google.com.

Especially useful on the long web pages, this Sparky feature shows a button image in a corner of your site when visitor starts scrolling it down. Click on the button image will scroll the web page back to top.

By default, height of the container is defined by the amount of content (text, images…) it contains. In example, if you have a row with multiple modules and they have background and/or border set, they will look uneven if they have different amount of content. This is feature is useful if you want to equalize heights of multiple module boxes in a row, especially when they have background and/or borders set.

There’s only one parameter in this sub tab and it allows you to either enable or disable this feature. If this feature is enabled, the selected images will not be visible until they are inside the browser’s window. Once they are in the browser’s window (after page loading or scrolling), a selected animation will start and the images will become visible to the user.

This feature shows an animated spinner over a fullscreen mask to simulate the page preloading effect when visitors browse from one page to another.

This sub tab allows you to include some popular libraries and scripts for your site. Do not include those your site will not use because it will just slow down loading of your site unnecessary.
