How to customize your site

You can customize your site, connect your domain, and add information for better content recognition and indexing by search engines. You can also connect push notifications and analytics systems to track your traffic.

Where to find your site settings

To customize a site, go to the Websites section, and select Settings from the website menu.

You can also go to the detailed site information page and click Site Settings.

On the site information detail page, you will see four tabs.

General To change general settings for the site. Here you can change values and set the default values like the site name within your account, site address, favicon, and change the main page of your site.
Analytics For connecting Google Analytics, and Facebook pixel for additional analysis of website performance data.
Custom code To integrate analytics or other scripts into your site's HTML.

The General tab

Please note: to save the settings, click the Save before closing the tab.

How To change the site name in your account

You can change the names of the sites that will appear in your account to better distinguish them. To do this, go to the General tab and enter a new name in the field.

How to change your site address

For the created sites, by default, random addresses are generated on the minisite.ai or pulse.is domains. You can personalize the address by registering the first subdomain, and also change the second subdomain. To do this, click on the three dots on the right and select Edit.

Please note that this feature is not available for published sites. To change the address, you need to unpublish the site. Then you can change the address and republish the site.

You can also change the site address by connecting your own domain, suitable for the services of your company. To do this, click Add Domain and follow the instructions in the pop-up window.

How to change the main page

You can change the main page of the site, which is the page that opens first when someone visits your site.

Please note that you can select the main page of your site only if there are two or more pages. The new main page will have the URL of the site itself, and the previous main page will have a system URL that you can change in the page settings.

How to set up a 404 page

You can select a page to which users will be redirected if the page they are trying to access does not exist.

To do this, in the 404 page field, select a page from the drop-down list. This will help keep users on your site and redirect them to other pages that might be useful to them.

How to select a default website language

You can select a page language for your tooltips, errors, and other notifications. The selected language does not affect any page content you add in the builder.

In the Language field, select a language from the list. It will be applied to all website pages. If you have pages in other languages, you can change your language settings on each page separately.
