For all the sections where there is an icon there is an image field that allows you to select an icon. We shipped some icons on the assets/icons folder in case you want to use pre-made icons that work with Landtamic.

For demo purposes we included images from unDraw and Freepik, if you decide to use them for Production make sure to give correct attribution in the Footer.

We have grouped the globals into 'Theme' where you can modify the content to fit your needs:

General

  • Logo Normal - Normal light version of the logo (preferably SVG).

  • Footer Copyright - If has_menu is disabled you still have the option to include a small footer, suitable for small websites / landing pages. Here you have the following options:

    • Footer Items: A replicator field to add / remove footer items based on your preference. Copyright - To add a copyright text. Image - If you want an image / preferably logo to be displayed in the footer. Menu - Suitable to display a small horizontal menu in the footer for small websites / landing pages.

Favicon

We have created all the required favicon versions, but with our Landtamic logo. Feel free to add your own. The favicon's were generated using Real Favicon Generator, note that you don't need to include site.webmanifest as we generate this on the fly with Statamic.

  • Change Frequency - How often do you want to instruct search engines to crawl?

  • Priority - It lets the search engines know which pages you deem most important for the crawlers.

SEO

When you edit a page on the control panel, you can see that each page has the SEO section in the entry editor. For SEO we use a free add-on called Seotamic which you can read about it below this section. Note that for Posts we use a custom ViewModel on App\ViewModels\OgImage.php and we inject it to the Posts collection in order to dynamically add a OG Image based on the Image. If you don't need this feature and you want to set the OG Image manually on each post please remove this View Model.

  • MetaTitle - It can be used to determine the title used on search engine results pages.Title prepend - Prepends to title the text set in General SEO settings.Title append - Appends to title the text set in General SEO settings.Meta Description - It can be used to determine the text used under the title on search engine results pages.

The design of Landtamic is done entirely with TailwindCSS. We have added many different colors on the Tailwind Config file and you can change the primary colors to make a different color combination for your website.

  • Configuration of TailwindCSSWe use JIT Mode by default.Edit the config tailwind.config.jsFont Family - default is sans: Manrope.Colors - primary, secondary, info color names because it makes it easier to apply different colors..
