How to edit the header and footer of your site in SiteBuilder

A header and footer are located at the top and bottom sections of a website and remain the same no matter which web page the visitor goes to. The header and footer of a website typically determines the website's style and design as well as containing links to other pages, the organisation's logo or title, contact information, and a copywrite notice.

What is a header? 

This is the area of the website at the top of the web page. The header of your website usually has your website title, company logo, navigation links, and an image slider with a page.

What is a footer? 

This is the area of a website that is located at the bottom of your web pages. It is also located on every page of your website. This area is where your site's contact details, social media, or copyright information would usually be found.
