In this chapter, you will discover how to:

  • Add a gradient to a section or a title.

  • Add your own gradient to the Website Builder palette.


In standard, you can select several gradients directly from the Website Builder. However, for custom themes, you must add the gradients directly in the section tag with a style attribute.


<section class="s_text_image" data-snippet="s_text_image" data-name="Text - Image" style="background-image: linear-gradient(135deg, rgb(255, 204, 51) 0%, rgb(226, 51, 255) 100%) !important;">
    <!-- Content -->

To apply a gradient to text, use a font tag with the text-gradient class.

    <font class="text-gradient" style="background-image: linear-gradient(135deg, rgb(203, 94, 238) 0%, rgb(75, 225, 236) 100%);">A Section Subtitle</font>


You can also add your own custom gradients to the Website Builder. This way, the user can easily use them without manually recreating them.
