The Theme Designer enables you to have full control of the graphical elements on the pages. Using the Zenfolio Theme Designer, the complicated task of editing CSS code has been replaced with a simple point-and-click tool. Text, buttons, backgrounds, menu styles, thumbnails, and image decorations are all available for customization via a discerning visual designer. The Theme Designer simplifies the task of creating great-looking themes by automatically generating aesthetically pleasing color palettes.
By adding a persistent site menu throughout all pages you will ensure a consistent and uniform browsing experience. Build your site menu any way you like and include links to any gallery, collection or group and to built-in About, Contact, and Search pages, or external websites. You can also add drop-down menus to simplify navigation and make your website more search engine friendly.
Your website is built using HTML, not Flash, so it will easily be discovered and indexed by search engines. We automatically submit your site map to all major search engines and let you know which fields are important to fill out and display on your pages to make them search engine friendly.
Your site is integrated with Google Analytics−a free tool that allows you to collect aggregate information about visitors to your Zenfolio website. Information includes the number of unique visitors over time, their location, length of visits, and much more.
In addition to Google Analytics you can use webmaster tools from all major search engines. These tools let you peek at how search engines see and index your site, allowing you to fine tune your content to improve search results.
Use the contact list feature to send email invitations to your visitors when you post new galleries. You can even ask your visitors to register before viewing your photos so you can capture their email addresses.
Receive feedback from your visitors through comments and guestbook entries. Guestbooks
allow visitors to post public or private messages on your home page as well as in
any group, gallery or collection. You can review and moderate comments and receive
email notifications when someone leaves a comment for you.
Feedback from others is also a great way to improve your site. You can also learn new composition, lighting, and digital techniques by exploring the pages of other photographers.
Since your site is built using HTML it is compatible with most popular mobile and
tablet devices. This enables your visitors to enjoy their photos on the go with
slideshows, swipe navigation, and fast loading images.
Your website has an equally smooth browsing experience whether clients are using a mobile device or a standard browser. The website will be automatically presented in the layout optimized for mobile browsing when opened from a mobile phone (iPhone and Android are currently supported). Your visitors can easily navigate your portfolio on the go with smooth touch navigation, swipes, and menus designed specifically for mobile screens.
If you have your own domain name registered you can set it up to point to your Zenfolio account. By doing this it will become the address to your Home page and all the links to your photo pages and galleries will begin with your personal domain name.
Though it rarely happens, if you ever find yourself stuck you can refer to the comprehensive online Help Center for explanations and specific steps on how to get things done. Or you can contact Zenfolio Customer Support and one of our Zenmasters will reply promptly.
