Overview of Site-Setting

1.Frontend Welcome Page

In the frontend of your website, there are various elements like the site title, headings, and other content that visitors see. These elements are what create the user experience.

2.Accessing the Backend

Now, when you switch to the backend of your website, you'll find an icon, often represented as a home icon. Clicking on this icon takes you directly to the default frontend page. It's a handy shortcut to quickly view your website as visitors do.

The Frontend Page Will Look like this

3.Changing Site Title and Content

When it comes to making changes to elements like the site title or other content displayed on your website, you typically have two options. The first is to manually edit the code responsible for these elements. For instance, you could navigate to the themes section of your website, specifically the resource views, and locate the default.blade.php file. In this file, you can modify the title name.

4. Using the Backend:

However, the manual method can be time-consuming and requires technical knowledge. An alternative and much more convenient approach is to use the backend of your website. The backend provides a user-friendly interface for changing settings like the site title, copyright text, and more. It simplifies the process and doesn't require you to delve into the code.

Purpose of Copy Button

The Copy Button is used to provide quick way to copy the code for specific settings, such as the site title or copyright text, from the backend configuration to their frontend pages. This simplifies the process of ensuring that changes made in the backend are reflected in the frontend without users needing to manually update these values. It essentially automates the synchronization of dynamic content like titles, copyright text, and other settings, enhancing user convenience and ensuring consistency in the displayed content across the website.

In backend, you have the option to customize various settings, including the copyright text. Let's say you want to update the copyright text to display on your homepage.

Navigate to the backend settings where you can edit the copyright text. Once you're there, you'll find a field for the copyright click on the custom and then appear a text input. You can make your desired changes in this field.

3. Using the Copy Button:

Next to the copyright text input field, there's a handy "Copy" button. When you click on this button, it copies the code associated with the copyright text.

Now, go to the page where you want to display the copyright text, which is typically your homepage. Instead of manually entering the copyright text, you can paste the copied code directly onto your homepage file . we are showing the copyright text into homepage you can show where you want Go to Themes->Resource->Views->frontend->pages->home.blade.php file .

5. Saving the Setting

Once you've pasted the code on your homepage, you can save the changes. This ensures that the copyright text is now dynamically linked to the setting you updated in the backend.

Now Your Welcome Page look like this in the image you can see the copyright text

Suppose you need to update the copyright text in the future. Instead of manually editing the text on your homepage again, you can simply return to the backend settings.

In the backend settings, make the desired changes to the copyright text. After you've made your adjustments, click on the "Save Setting" button to save the updated copyright text.

8. Automatic Update on Homepage

Here's the magic: When you save the setting in the backend, it automatically reflects those changes wherever you've placed the copyright text code on your homepage. You don't need to manually edit the homepage code each time you update the copyright text.
