If you can't see the header section, it's likely that all your website pages are hidden from the navigation menu

Duplicating Items

Deleting or Hiding Items

You can easily remove – delete, or hide – irrelevant content from your website:

Adding Custom Code

There are two ways to add custom code to your website, and it depends on the type of code you want to add.

If code needs to be added to the <head></head> part of your website's source code, use the Custom code field in your website's integrations settings.

If code needs to be added to the <body></body> part of your website's source code, use the Embed code element.

Customizing the Mobile Version

Make sure the mobile version of your website looks good. Switch to the mobile view by clicking on the mobile phone icon in the upper toolbar:

The option to check the mobile version in Hostinger Website Builder

By default, the mobile website's version displays elements in the order they've been added to the desktop version. Even if you, later on, reorder elements on the desktop, these changes are not automatically applied to the mobile version. You can sort elements on the mobile view manually. This way, you can lay out elements differently on desktop and mobile views.

Adding a Blog

You can add a blog to any website template. Expand the Blog panel on the left and click on Start a blog:
