  • Team
  • Testimonials
Trash

Pages you created, Services, Blog posts, Galleries, Testimonials and Team members can be deleted. If you delete the item, it will go to the Trash. It will stay there forever. You can of course delete the trash if you like. It works the same way as with your files on your PC or laptop.

General settings

Website look&feel, basic settings

Sitemap

A sitemap is a file where you provide information about the pages, videos, and other files on your site, and the relationships between them. Search engines like Google read this file to more intelligently crawl your site. A sitemap tells the crawler which files you think are important in your site.

Your sitemap is automatically generated based on content of your Pixenio website and is available on url https://your_domain.pixenio.com/sitemap.xml (to see the exact url go to Pixenio "Settings > Integrations").

Most likely you will want to add this url in your Google Search Console Account which will help Google to find your website and pages a lot faster.

Google Search Console

Google Search Console tools and reports help you measure your site's Search traffic and performance, fix issues and make your site shine in Google Search results.

Before you start using Google Search Console you must register your website in your Google Account. Please follow Google's instructions and do not forget to register your Pixenio Custom URL if you have activated it.

Website Verification Methods

Google Analytics

This method is available only if you have already registered your Pixenio website in Google Analytics and you have your own Google Analytics code inserted in Pixenio "Settings > Integrations". During the verification process in your Google Account choose "Google Analytics" method and follow the instructions provided by Google.

HTML tag

During the verification process in your Google Account choose "HTML tag" method, which will generate for you a code snippet simillar to this:

<meta name="google-site-verification" content="YourVerificationString" />

Before you click on "Verify" button, copy the whole snippet and paste it in Pixenio "Settings > Integrations > Google Search Console code". Save Pixenio Settings and return back to your Google Account where you can continue and verify your website.

After this step the ownership of website should be confirmed and you should be able to use Google Search Console.

Basic website content

Each website needs a title and logo. You can add it in “Settings -> Basic content”. You will also find there other options such as CTA button or Footer text.

Logo

If your company has a logo, it’s the best to add it to your website. Pixenio allows you to add two logo styles: for light backgrounds and for dark background. Best logo is in SVG format and transparent background. Ask a designer who made it to you to provide you your logo in this format. It will look amazing in Pixenio.

CTA

Pixenio websites are optimized for conversion. It allows you to easily add CTA button with description to your homepage. Each theme displays CTA button differently, but it is styled to catch visitors eyes.

Appearance & Colors

Content in Pixenio is completely separated from design and website layout. You can switch to a different theme, change color scheme or homepage layout any time you want. Everything that you have ever entered in pages, service, blog etc. will be kept. You won’t lose any of your data. Give it a try! Simply navigate to “Appearance” from the admin menu on the left hand side.

That way you can keep up with new design or technology trends without rebuilding your website from scratch. We are constantly working on new themes for you.

Contact form settings

Pixenio allows you to add simple contact form to any page. This option is available in “Page Settings” if you edit selected page.

Contact form works automatically and has Google Invisible Recaptcha feature to prevent spam. Information from contact form will be sent to your email address that is set in your account.

If there is an email address set up in “Settings -> Contact Info”, it will be used as email recipient. Copy of the mail will be also sent to a visitors email address who has filled in that form.

Tips & Tricks

In some situations you migh want to hide all your email addresses from your website but you still want to use Contact form. You can simply remove all addresses from Settings -> Contact Info. Now the main Account (login) email address becomes also the Contact form address.

It is common case that during registration you used your personal email which isn't suitable as Pixenio contact email. You can change this address whenever you need in your Account (but keep in mind that you will have to use this new address also as login email).

Now all your email addresses are hidden, your Contact form is working and all Pixenio notifications and messages are sent to your new contact email.
