Is the style designer designed to let users save changes for individual pages or to apply changes to all pages of a site? Using Chrome I was able to initially able to save changes for individual pages (a popup asked if I wanted to save the changes to just the page I was working on or all pages of the site), later in the same session the style designer automatically applied the changes to all pages, without a popup to ask if I wanted the changes applied to all pages.
Does anyone know how the style designer is designed to work, and if the option to save changes on individual pages is not part of the present design, is that option being considered for the future?
Cleared cache, cookies, update flash, the normal user updates, just confused by inconsistent behavior in the same working session.

Hi Rose Marie,

The purpose of the Style Designer is to apply your style changes to your whole site to lend to a consistent design across your website. It's essentially a user friendly skin to edit your website CSS.

There are however aspects of your website, such as your banner, where you can elect to apply your changes to just the page you are working on, or to all pages.

Thanks for the clarification Laura. I think I was confused by the fact that I was working with the banner and background and also the page heading. The changes to the banner and background can in fact be made to individual pages, but the page heading changes sitewide.
Prior to the last major revision to the sitebuilder, the page heading could be edited on a per page basis, is there any progress on restoring this feature?
Thanks again for prompt and helpful clarification on the use of the style designer.

Hello Rose

I'm afraid that we currently don't have plans to restore the feature to edit the properties of the Page Heading on a per page basis. The intention is to use Style Designer for your Page Heading. You can still individually change the text of the Page Heading.

Webdesign experts generally advise against differently formatted page headings for each page because it could be regarded as inconsistent design and therefore less professional. However, in some instances you could want it to be like that deliberately. What exactly would you like to edit individually about your Page Headings on each page, and why?

What you can still do, is add custom code to your Page Heading Editor to overwrite e.g. the font colour for a particular page. If you're prepared to use some HTML code and let me know what you'd like to change, I'll check if I can provide you with a suitable code.

Hi Stefan, thanks for your response. I can add basic HTML, I was interested in the alignment of the page header, do you have any suggestions on how this could be done with html? Most headers are on the far left, in the upper corner, I was interested in seeing if they could be centered.

Hello Rose

I can try to find a solution for centering. Can you please post the URL of your published website, so that I know for which site you'd like to have the centering?

And do you want the centering just for a specific page? Please let me know the page name then. If you'd like to have it sitewide, our new Super Flat Style may be your best bet. When switching to this Style Template, the Style Designer allows you to determine the alignment of your Page Heading in the left-hand side option panel under Fonts > Main Header > Text Alignment.
