Company Info

Card with text boxes labeled Name, Phone, Address, and Email

The Company Info card allows you to set the company name, phone number, address, and email address. This information will be placed on the website in a suitable location, such as the bottom of the page or near a contact form.

If your company has public pages on various social media platforms, place links to those pages here. Website visitors will be shown icons corresponding to those platforms, and can click on them to be taken to your social media page. For example, if you have a Facebook page and YouTube channel, visitors will see a and a on your site, and can click on them to go to your Facebook page and YouTube channel respectively.


Card with option to enable or disable built-in analytics

If you do not wish to track users with the built-in SiteWriter analytics, you can disable that here. This does not affect third-party services, such as Google Analytics or Matomo.

Extra Code

Card with text box for adding extra HTML code to the site header

If you need to add code for third-party services, you can copy and paste it into this box. It will be inserted in every page on your website. This is useful for enabling services such as Google Analytics, or inserting extra metadata tags. If you aren't familiar with HTML code, be careful, as you can easily make your website appear broken to visitors using this tool. If something does break, try removing the contents of the Extra code text box, saving the settings, and reloading the website.

This card allows you to add web links to the bottom of your website. The title is shown to visitors, and they will be taken to the link when they click the title.
