Tip 7 - Using Icons
Icons give visitors graphical representation of what you are trying to communicate on your website. We have all seen the popular Facebook, Twitter and RSS icons. To add icons to your site, first search the web icons (remember to view the license information to make sure you have rights to use the icon, if you are looking for free icons) or create your own! Next, in any HTML module or Image module, you can upload the icon. Make the icon link to another page of your site, if the icon represents something the visitor can click on.
Tip 8 - Change Up Your Design Template
Ready for a new website design theme? Use the WebHornet Template Manager to download new templates and give your site a new look and feel. Read the following Knowledge Base article for step-by-step instructions on the Template Manager.
Tip 9 - Using the Blog Gadget
If you are using the Blog Enhanced Module, you can also use the Blog Gadget to feature a Tag Cloud. Take a look at the WebHornet main Blog page. On the right side of the page you will see a grouping of keywords and phrases. We have tagged each of our blog posts with these keywords and phrases. In the Module to the right of our blog, we set-up the Blog Gadget. Visitors can click on the keywords and phrases in the Blog Tag Cloud to filter articles they are most interested in! Read more about how to set-up the Blog and Blog Gadget.
