This doc will teach you our terminology inside of Showit! This will help you better understand the platform as well as better communicate with your Showit Support Pro when you need a helping hand.

First let's explore the page tab in the left sidebar of Showit 

  1. The site tab, found in the left sidebar, which we will look at closer in a moment. 
  2. The page tab where you will see the page you are working on and the canvasses on that page. 
  3. This section represents the page you are on, in this case the home page. 
  4. These elements are canvasses that make up the page. 
  5. A). This icon is how you add your text, it will give you options to choose from which you can control in your design settings. B). This icon lets you add elements to your site like; rectangle shapes, icons, embed codes, videos, and galleries. C). This icon opens your media library and lets you add a single image to a page. 
  6. A). Zoom out. B). Reset zoom. C). Zoom in. 

Now let's explore the site tab found in the left sidebar

In this tab you can access your site settings, design settings, and your media library, this is also where you will find your list of site canvasses.
7. Click this icon to add a new page.
8. This is where you find the pages that make up your Showit site.
9. This is the blog template portion of Showit, these pages allow you to control the layout and design of your blog, you can learn more here

Last but not least, let's look at a canvas on a page

10. Again, this larger layer indicates the page we are working on.
11. These little folders are canvas views the first canvas view on any canvas is the default view for that canvas. Each canvas view is denoted by the number to the right of the folder, view 1, view 2, view 2, etcetera.
12. These smaller layers are the canvasses that make up your page (in this example the home page). 

We hope this glossary helps you better understand he Showit platform. If you do find yourself needing some help, contact our support team today! You can best help us help you by letting us know where the issue is happening in your site: what page/canvas. Also it is super helpful if you indicate if it's an issue happening on the mobile or desktop design.
