As part of the updates we are making to Reason8, we thought we would create a simple and fun way to help you to change the navigation buttons on your site. We hope you have fun and we look forward to seeing great buttons that are styled to fit with your website design. This quick knowledge paper guides you through the basics of the new "Button Builder".
These days, websites without background videos run the risk of appearing old-fashioned. Even dinosaurish,
There’s nothing wrong with dinosaurs, or with looking like one. Dinosaurs are cool. Unless they’re chasing you of course.
But our new background videos have landed, exploded and changed the game. They have wiped out the old standards for beautiful websites, and have replaced them with a new standard that will leave all other websites looking like fossils.
Luckily, both our existing clients and our new ones have access to this brilliant new feature we’ve introduced, and we’d like to share its benefits with you today.
A superhero is only super because he or she stands out amongst the crowd. If we were a planet of flying, teleporting, time-freezing super-strong aliens, then we wouldn’t think there was anything super about us. When it comes to using formatting methods such as bold, italics, capitals or centering, all of these little text-enhancing superheroes will only stand out if they are used sparingly, in the right place, and when absolutely necessary…

When July 2018 hits, Google Chrome will make sure a strong warning will pop up on any website that has not yet updated from “http” to “https”. The warning will include something along the lines of “Website Not Secure”. Here’s how to avoid it.
To start: go to STEP2 of your control panel and click the [Menu Button] link.
The best way to ensure that your visitors get the most value from your UK business website is to craft a user journey using the men buttons on your website.
Either choose a button from your favourites (automatically created as you experiment ) or select one from our library of samples.
Click [SELECT] and start editing your button. (Remember the style you choose at this point is just a starting point and you can completely edit and customise it).
The button system uses the editing screen below and you can see how your buttons look as you make changes to them.
There are 9 ways that you can change the buttons – just click the little icons and you can start making changes straight away.
There are a number of features that are worth mentioning in more detail.
The button editor will allow you to add horizontal buttons to your website however there are three things that you should keep in mind if you want horizontal buttons:
Unlike vertical buttons, you only have a limited amount of space for horizontal buttons and if you have too many buttons then they will either look too cramped or will overflow into a second row. Overflow buttons may cause unexpected results. We ask you to choose the number of buttons that you want in your menu bar.
If your button text is very long then the button text will wrap and you may end up with different sized buttons that might look odd.
Your website may have been designed for vertical buttons and horizontal buttons may not fit. Remember, we can make changes to your template for a one off payment of £30
Horizontal buttons give your content more room to spread out. This might mean you may have to adjust the formatting to fit this extra pace.
To create multi-level website menu buttons just click the link at the top of the page that says [organise pages]. To find out more about the multi-level system click here
None of the changes that you make will take effect until you click this button.
Several customisable features use the reason8 colour picker. You can choose from more than 6million colours. Just click a colour and close the window.
To use the picker click inside the colour box and a colour picker window will open. The sliding bar on the left selects the broad colour and the bigger area on the left allows you to select the exact colour you want.
If you already know the special (Hex) colour sequence of the colour you want then you can simply type it into the box below the picker. (remember to prefix the number with a special ‘#’ symbol).
To save fiddling and make things a bit quicker, we have also included a quick palette.
Just click this link and it opens up with some pre-chosen colours. We include your main website colours and any colours you have chosen while building your buttons.
