  • Pages

From the “pattern” panel, you will now be able to insert either complete pages from the demo in the “Pages” category or insert the other types of blocks.

Custom Block Settings

↑ Back to top

Ledge comes with additional custom block settings. You will find these settings when you edit a block in your backend.

Below is the list of the blocks that come with custom settings.

  • Button: entrance animation
  • Cover: default color skin (dark background with light text or light background with dark text) and padding option
  • Gallery: Enable or disable Lightbox
  • Heading: Text Entrance animation
  • Image: Enable or disable Lightbox and Hover effect types
  • Paragraph: Text Entrance animation

Entrance Animation

For the heading, paragraph, and button blocks, you will find custom entrance animation. It will animate the text while scrolling, and there are 3 types of animation available. You can also add a delay to the animation.

Cover Skin and Padding Settings

The cover blocks are used in the theme to create sections and alternate between sections with content, and sections with a big image or video background. To make things even more simple, we added “padding” and “Default cover skin” settings.

If you want to insert an image or video background, it is recommended to choose the “Dark” cover skin. This way your text will be white by default.

By default, the cover will have padding. If you want to insert content that will take the full width of the screen, you can disable the default padding by selecting “no padding” in the “Padding option”.

Enable Image and Video Lightbox

A Lightbox is a feature that will show an image in full size or a video when clicking on an image.

Image and Gallery Lightbox

For single images, and galleries, you can choose to enable the Lightbox. To do so, be sure that your image or gallery images are linked to the full-size media file in the options.

Video Opener

To create a “video opener”, insert an image in your page (for example a play button image), link it to a YouTube or Self Hosted video URL, and enable the lightbox option.

Page Templates

↑ Back to top

You can change your page template in the right sidebar of your page editor, by clicking on the “Page” tab

There are 4 templates that you may need to choose from depending on the content to display.

  1. Default Template: for pages with just text. It will have a default top and bottom padding. It will come with the default header with the page title and the page featured image will be used as the header background image.
  2. Page Blocks: for pages with block content. It will come with the default header with the page title and the page featured image will be used as the header background image.
  3. Page Blocks No Header: Same as the “Page Blocks” template, but without any header and with a transparent menu bar. You will most likely use this one for your homepage or a landing page.
  4. Blank: A template with nothing in it. It will allow you to create any content from scratch
