Drag and Drop
350pages has free-format templates that allow you to drag and drop the objects anywhere on the webpage to create your own layout. Subscribers to the full 350pages also have an auto-format template system.
Also available in the free format template selection are "Slim" templates. These templates are designed to work as Facebook fanpages and optimized for mobile device viewing. If you are developing a site with mobile users in mind, or wish to make certain parts of your site easier for mobile users to view, you may wish to consider using a Slim template. As previously mentioned, Slim templates are perfect for Facebook fan pages, and you can find information on how to use them for this purposes here.
Click on the Insert button located on the top bar of the page editor. From this insert menu, select the object you wish to insert and the object will appear at the top of the page ready for you to drag it into position.
To move the object, hold down your mouse pointer on the object and move your mouse to where you want to place the object. As you move the item, you will see a grid appear to help you position your object. 350pages will try to snap your object to a line up with the closest object. Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, to move the object freely without the object snapping to the grid.
One of the great features of the auto-format layouts is that the content will automatically adjust when you insert new content or change the size of the content. Another is that when using the variable width template option this will ensure ensure that the contents of your web page will automatically adjust to the viewer's browser screen and text size to display the best layout for each viewer.
It is possible to have more detailed control to achieve a variation of the auto-format layout. This can be done in two ways:
Click on the Insert button located on the top bar of the page editor. From this insert menu, select the object you wish to insert. The object will appear at the top of the page ready for you to drag it into position.
You can change the properties of an existing object so that it will be floating. Hover over the item until the object editor bar appears and then click on the Properties button (the second button on the editing bar). From the Properties screen, click on the Floating checkbox, and then on the Save button. At this point, the selected object now becomes a Floating Object and you can drag and drop it anywhere on the page.
If you wish to use floating objects on an auto-format template then you should use fixed-width templates, (select this from the page properties on the top bar). The reason for this is because the auto-format templates will automatically adjust to the viewer's browser but the floating image will stay where you put it, so you may see some unexpected results if you are using a variable template.
In the free-format pages, you can move a group of objects together. You can learn more about how to do this here.
TipFloating Objects can be moved anywhere on the page and they can even overlap other objects. To learn more about layers, please take a look at this help page.
