Using Site Presets to quickly Customize every Page in your Site

Site Presets are site design and layout settings that have already been adjusted and optimized to make your various Zenfolio pages have a well coordinated presentation. They are comprehensive, affecting your site settingsthemelayouts, and page options.

The preset is applied to your entire site- with the preset's combination of customization settings applying to all of the pages of the site. Also all groups, galleries, collections and other pages will be set to use default settings.

Please see the video below for a short tutorial on applying Site Presets:

When first opening a Zenfolio account, you may apply a preset with sample content such as galleries with images. This also includes pages with about and contact information as well as blog posts. You will have a completely pre-configured site ready for visitors to view immediately. 

For already active accounts that apply a preset to their site, the presets do not generate sample content.

After applying a preset, you can further customize your site by choosing different layouts, themes and options for your various pages.

Here is a list of all available site presets. Click on the preset to view a demo site that utilizes that preset.
