Getting Started

It's easy to create a unique website with Jimdo. We recommend that new users watch the video tutorials below and then browse the rest of the Basics section in the Support Center before getting started.

 

1. Layout

Jimdo sites are all made up of the same parts. The layout that you choose will determine the overall look of your site, and content can be added to your site using Elements. Each layout is composed of five parts: Header, Navigation, Content Area, Sidebar, and Footer.


2. Header

The Header appears at the top of every page of your site. You can add a background image and a title to the Header, and the size of the Header is easily adjusted. JimdoPro and JimdoBusiness customers have the ability to add a logo to the Header. 

 


3. Navigation

The Navigation contains links to all of the pages of your site. Jimdo sites can have up to 3 levels of navigation, and the layout you choose will determine where the links to each level of navigation appear on your site. 

 


4. Content

The Content Area is the main place where you will add Elements like Text and Photos. Any elements that you add to the Content Area will only show up on the page where you have added them.
