This allows you to immediately see the content of a page and thus be sure to be working on the correct page at any given time. This is very important when deleting pages; you always know that you are on the correct page.
Content element options
Each content element, regardless if text, images or whatever, has its own options which can be accessed and adjusted individually. Eg. It is possible to generate a frame for each element, assign a background color, and set the internal margins. Since you decide where a frame is to be drawn, you could, for example, set this element to have a width of 10 px, a grey line on the right and add a link to the bottom. Since all these factors are variable, you have many options for this.
Move content elements freely
ou can individually move and reposition each content element on your webpage by drag-and-drop. Alternatively, you can also move all elements with our click-system. The first click activates the element, and the second click determines where this element should be moved to.

Most webkits only offer different colors for certain areas of the website. page4 allows you to individually assign colors to any part of your website; transparent colors are also available, Regardless of sidebar, footer, background, all margins, just about everything can be colorized at will.
Extensive background images
Each area that can be assigned with the background color, can also be assigned with a background image; including all options of aligning and positioning that image. You may use images from our database or you can upload your own images.
Assign border to specified areas
We offer a lot of areas that you can use In a design; 3 headers, 3 footers, 2 sidebars, 1 content area and 1 navigation area. You can draw borders for each of these areas. You can choose from different line types, and also specify the width (between 0 and 99 pixels), assign specific colors of these lines and specify on which pages you want this line to appear. You can choose from 15 different variations, offering a vast number of combinations.
Assign rounded edges to specific areas
Each area that can be framed, also offers the option to round the edges. The rounding can be set between 0 and 99 pixels, and even specify to which edges the rounding should be applied. Again, we offer 15 variations for this, which are selectable by a simple mouse-click. Rounding's will also be displayed, if the border has been deactivated, or has been set to 0 pixels.

You can freely adjust the width of your entire website, by means of sliders. The entire width can be set In 10 pixel steps between 700 and 1500 pixels. Sidebars can be adjusted in Steps of the five pixels, between 150 and 400 pixels. The distance between those two areas can be adjusted from 1 to 80 pixels. The system will always recognize at which position you are, and display all options that are relevant for the section.

You can freely adjust the heigth of all 3 headers between 50 and 500 pixels, in 5 pixel steps. You can also adjust the 3 footers between 30 and 500 pixels. The distance between footers and headers can also be set. Furthermore, it is possible to change the navigation area height and define how the navigation is to be positioned within that area.
Adjust background image size
If background images are being used for specific areas, the positioning of these images is important. For example: if you decide to have an image that fills the entire background of your webpage, that image should be larger than one, in which you want to implement a header. We offer 5 options to scale the background: maximize – the image will be displayed as large as possible over the entire webpage without distortions, fill all – this will cause the image to jump to the maximum assigned area even it it will be distorted, select width and / or height, or you can keep the image in its original size. The background image for the external area can be set to scroll with the user, or it can remain static.
Freely positionable navigation
A vertical navigation can be built into the left or the right sidebar. A horizontal navigation can be positioned freely in the header area. There are many options to perfectly position your navigation on your website. Competitor's webkits require a new design for each change in the navigation.
While other webkits expect a new design for a different navigation, page4 allows the use of existing navigation templates; both vertical and horizontal. We are continuously expanding this selection and will offer much more variety by 2017.
Designing the navigation
Background color, font and lines can be set for all 3 areas; where the font information are valid for all areas and automatically adapted to the font size; even transparent colors can be used.
If you have implemented a horizontal navigation, drop down menus are automatically used for all sub-pages and are displayed. If you add a vertical navigation into the sidebar, page4 will split the navigation. The drop-down menu will be invisible, and all sub-pages are displayed in the sidebar (vertical navigation). If you remove the vertical navigation from the sidebar, and only the horizontal Navigation remains, A drop-down menu will be displayed again; everything is checked and organized automatically.
Customize navigation area
If a horizontal navigation is located between two headers, This navigation obtains its own dedicated area which you can fill out with all options (Background, frames, etc.). You can also specify the internal distance between the navigation to a specific area. The navigation is located inside a header, you can only change the inner distance. The area itself is transparent, and not adjustable. A vertical navigation always has a transparent area.
Every converted or new design offers the option to turn the mobile view on or off. If the mobile view is activated. The navigation will switch to a mobile version as soon as the display width is less than 480 pixels. Additionally, the sidebar that displays multi-column content will now show single column content. All new and converted templates as well as all contents are responsive and always adapt to the display size automatically.
You can embed font information for headers, text and links in the design and thus ensure a uniform font format on all pages. The font formats are saved in the design.
Design areas and elements
Apart from the content area and the horizontal navigation, page4 allows you to hide all elements within a design. You can also decide which of the 8 additional areas you wish to show or hide. This offer a large variety of options for the design.
A structure determines how the individual areas are positioned. Currently you can apply 4 different structures to any design, specify how the sidebars are to be displayed and if you want to implement a so called „Stripe-design“. When changing the structure, no data will be changed, but merely hidden or displayed.
You can choose from new and converted templates freely, allowing a quick startup. Every template was designed with page4. It is also possible to show or hide data from each element by using different structures and all the other options as well, offering millions of possibilities for the design, without having to have any programming knowledge.
All uploaded images are stored and displayed in the image management. You can re-arrange the images however you choose. An existing image can be displayed an unlimited number of times in any resolution on your website.
We offer a large variety of images, which may be used free of charge under contract with page4. These images have been optimized in sized and resolution for the different areas.
You can mirror any design horizontally by a single mouse click which can be undone at any time. If you mirror a design which contains a sidebar, that sidebar will be merged from left to right and vice versa. If a design contains 2 sidebars, they and their respective content will be switched out.
Specify sidebar content
If you use a sidebar, you can determine exactly which content should be displayed. You decide if and where a block-navigation should be implemented and how the content is to be added.
Most webkits offer sidebars that are fixed and always are use the minimum space that is required – no more, independent of the height of that content area. Page4 allows you to decide how high this sidebar should be for every single sidebar.
