FLEX Pro is the biggest update to the FLEX website theme since its inception. This update was pushed to all SNO client sites over the summer of 2021.
FLEX Pro is designed not to affect the look of your site by default. There are a number of new, impactful tools that give you more slack to be as flexible with your site’s appearance than you’ve ever had before. But the ball will be in your hands to explore those tools before seeing any changes affecting your site’s current presentation.
Here’s an overview of the biggest features of this update for you to start to wrap your head around:
Header and Footer Designer
Within the new Site Designer feature you’ll have complete control of how your header and footer areas at the top and the bottom of your website look. You can choose from upwards of 30 different content/tool types, including menus, buttons, tickers, ads and more, to build into and around your header and footer areas.
Widget Areas Designer
Break away from the six standardized Widget Area configurations to make your site completely your own. Reset the widths and locations of existing widget areas and add and name brand new ones. For the first time, the entire skeletal structure of your homepage is up to your own interpretation.
Custom Page Layouts
While you used to be able to create Widget-Based Category pages, this function now extends to static pages on your website as well. Like the Widget Areas Designer, the structure of these pages is completely customizable and is no longer limited to parent templates or preexisting Widget Area configurations.
A tool that’s long been requested, Design Drafts gives you and your staff the ability to customize your website’s appearance privately and work out every last kink before rolling out the changes live to your homepage.
