The panel is the site management interface to configure your site, add or delete content. Go to panel and fill username and password.

Quick formating

1. Setting up your website (name, style, buttons)

In Menu > Site, complete the General Settings and customize the Style Settings (the general width, colors) and the layout of the menu (visibility, accordion option). The last section (Advanced Style Settings) can be left empty.

2. Setting up your contents

In Menu > Site, the "Pages" section allows you to create, edit and delete pages. VERTICAL comes with different page templates : Simple page, Project page (vertical, slideshow, thumbnails, etc.).

3. Organizing your contents

Pages can be organized in Projects. "Projects" appears as a separate group in the menu. To make a new "Projects" group, create a Page in the Panel and set the "Projects" template.

Advanced Formatting

1. CSS Styles

In Menu > Site, the "Advanced Style Settings" section allows you to enter custom CSS directly :

html {font-size: 110%; }

Each template (page, slideshow, thumbs, vertical, etc.) has a specific class to apply specific styles, for example:

.portfolio-slideshow img {border: 1px solid #000; }
