Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating your website, part of Building a Single-Page Website in Muse.
- [Instructor] Now it's time for us to actually go into Muse…and start creating our website, so we're going to do that…by clicking on Create New Site here,…from the welcome screen.…You can also go to the File menu and just choose New Site.…Once that is clicked on, you're going to have…this New Site dialog box that comes up.…Here's where you have to make a big decision.…Now, for the time being, what we're going to be doing…is creating just a fixed-width website.…We're not going to be worrying about the mobile responsive…or alternate layouts of this webpage.…We have other courses here that can help you do that,…and at the very end of this course,…I'll give you several resources where you can check out…how to create a mobile responsive site inside of Muse.…
But what you're going to have to choose…is between Fluid and Fixed Width.…If you choose between one of these, it's okay.…You can always go back to the other one later on.…So if I want to build a fixed width website…right now, doesn't really matter.…I'm going to go here now and choose 1,000 pixels.…
Staff author Justin Seeley explains how to set up your master page, build a custom navigation bar, and define content blocks on the master page. Then he shows how to import your graphics and text (from sources such as CC Libraries and Microsoft Word) and style all of the content. In chapter 4, Justin shows how to add the "infinite scrolling" behavior that is so emblematic of single-page designs.
