Handle all of your site settings in one place with the Site Settings App!

Head over to your 'Dashboard' located on the Left Panel, and select the Site Settings App. The Site Settings App is divided into two sections, 'Basic' and 'Code Injection'.

Basic Settings

This section includes the basic settings of your website, like Site Offline, Site Versioning, and Caching, Site Name, Logo, Favicon, etc.

Site Offline

While completing your site, set it offline so users don't visit an uncompleted site.

Password Protect

Protect your site with a password. This option becomes available once the Site Offline switcher is enabled. To edit the Password Protected page, navigate to Pages App > System Pages > Password Protected > Edit.

Site Versioning

Connect your website to your custom domain. If the site versioning option is enabled, your website changes won't appear on your domain unless you use the Publish function.

Site Caching

Major reduction in server lag. When enabled, it will automatically save the data of your website to ensure fast loading for the next entries.

Site Name Separator in Titles

Another thing to look at is the “Site Name Separator in Titles” setting. You can select between “-”, “/”, and “|” symbols as the separator.

Design Mode Language

The language of the Edit Mode of your site. Currently, SpringBuilder supports English and Russian.

Tablet Mode Display

Mobile View is set by default when browsing the website from a tablet. However, you can always switch it from the Mobile view to the Desktop at any time.

Public Mode Language Detection

This gives you the option to set the built-in text visitors to see as the site's default language, the visitor's browser language, or based on the visitor's IP address. A custom domain is required for this feature.


Automatically established during website creation. Edit the timezone while working with Elements such as Countdown. Your website timezone can affect your Element timing.

Site Favicon

It's the icon that appears on your browser tab located next to the site name. Either upload your own image or choose one from Unsplash's Free Stock collection.

Mobile Touch Icon

This icon is used when visitors bookmark your web page or add your web page to their home screen. This is currently for iOS devices only. Feel free to upload your own PNG file or select one from our Free Stock collection.

Similar to the Favicon, it is a file used for a web page icon on the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. This icon is used when someone bookmarks your web page or adds your web page to their home screen. Simply upload a PNG file and let's make it happen.

Here’s how it works:

1. Open up Safari and load a website and tap the bookmark icon.

2. At the bottom of the screen, you'll see the Add to home screen icon.

3. If you managed to tap that button successfully, you'll have a few options such as choosing a name for the home screen icon.

Show Loading Page

You can now upload an animation to show while loading your website with the GIF, SVG, PNG format files. This option gives an opportunity to see the website first loading with animation. Besides the image file, you can choose a background color for the loading page.

Code Injection

Add HTML tags and custom codes in the Code Injection tab.

!Note: You can add CSS and Javascript codes to your website, as long as they include the HTML tags.

Fill the appropriate fields with the desired tags and click ‘Save’. Keep in mind that the codes added in the Code Injection section apply to the entire site. Please note, that it will go active once you've connected a Custom Domain to your SpringBuilder Website.

!Note: You can also add CSS and Javascript code to your website, assuming that they are within the HTML tags.

Make the most out of this app as it's one of the keys to guaranteeing a great online presence! Always know we're just a step away so hit the Chat box in the lower right corner if you have any questions!
