Choose a Template in BaseKit


As of June 19, 2013, BaseKit is unavailable on new Shared (SW) accounts; however, WordPress is an excellent alternative to this builder. The instructions on how to install WordPress are discussed in the article: How to Install WordPress With Softaculous.

When Starting a New Website

Once you log in, you will be presented with a choice of templates. You can change this later if you want! Pick one that suits your site, and then proceed to build by clicking on "Create your site." This will take you to the Design tab of the builder by default. From here, you can start personalizing your site!

After you select a template, you can no longer go back and choose another; however, you can completely edit and change the template you chose.

Customizing After Selecting a Template

After selecting your template, you can customize and refine it by choosing a theme. You will also want to make additional changes, like replacing the default images in the template.

Changing Templates

As mentioned above, changing templates after you have chosen them and started working on your website is impossible. You can change your website's theme and use template widgets to modify the template and style of your website.

The only way to change the template would be to start over, which would cause you to lose everything you added to your site.
