I suggest looking at thedifferent Heading Themes, Fonts, Size and Effects. It is also recommended that you do not use more thanthree different font types for your website, as you want to make it consistent and easy to navigate.Creating a website with lots of different fonts will only confuse your audience and distract them from thecontent!5 Adding and changing web-pages: Click on the Site Menu button on the left-hand side; from the menu thatappears you will be able to add, delete and edit pages. For example, you could add one page per elementof culture OR you could add one blog post per element of culture.

6 Adding text: Click on the add button. You have several choices, but I recommend sticking to the following.Use Heading 1 or 2 for the page title, Heading 6 for sub titles and Paragraph for the main text of the page.Remember the rule about using no more than 3 font types – this means one for headings and one forparagraph.

6.1 Adding Images: Click on the Image button to upload your own image or select an image from the Wixdatabase. Anytime you add an image, you will be able to adjust its size and position. For the examplebelow, I will demonstrate how to upload an image from your computer - first, select Image and thenthen click on the beside My Image Uploads.6.2 Select the Upload Images button in the top right-hand corner. You will need to search for the imagethat you want to upload, once you have found it, select it and begin the upload. After the upload iscomplete, you can begin editing the position and size so that it fits perfectly within your website.
