Your Styling Engine interface allows you to customize any template’s colors, fonts, and background layers.

To access the Styling Engine, log into your iHOUSEweb admin menu, and click Edit Website, then click the Paint Roller.


Choose Palette

Here you can select an existing color palette associated with your template series (older templates may only have one option), or use the pencil icon to create a custom palette of your own. The color palette defines the colors of buttons, navigation bars, and other elements of the template design.

Extra Colors

This is a place to store a custom color for future use. Any color you save to the extra colors section will become a quick select color option for page backgrounds or fonts.

For Example, If you ever change your company logo, you can change the color variable from red to green, and everything changes at once, so you don't need to go back and edit every single widget manually.

Page Background

Here you can change your template’s background color, assign an image to your background, or even layer combinations of images and semi-transparent masks to create a very custom-looking background design.

Background Color

Change the background color of your website by choosing from the color palette or using one of your extra colors. 

Background Image

You also have the option of uploading a background image using the file manager to set a new wallpaper, or choosing from our library of images, tiles, and patterns. Extra settings are available to set the background position, size, and repeat structure.

Note: This doesn't affect the banner image.


Edit font settings to control which font families, colors, and sizes are automatically associated with the text on your website. Your body font settings will control the majority of your text content, while H1, H2, and H3 font settings will control the appearance of your page/widget headings and sub-headings. Anchor font settings apply to the clickable links on your website.

You may also bold, italicize, or caps lock all your text at once using these options.
