Managing the Page Transition Symbol

We deeply believe in the pow­er of smart details that can improve someone’s expe­ri­ence in the dig­i­tal play­ground. We have a strong focus on shap­ing the best pos­si­ble jour­ney, and tran­si­tions are some­thing we take very seri­ous­ly.

Far­go comes with such a visu­al tweak that can ampli­fy the entire sto­ry of your web­site. It’s called a Page Tran­si­tion Sym­bol, and it’s quite easy to set up and put it live and kick­ing. Just fol­low the above guid­ance, and you will make it work by the blink of an eye.

What’s a Page Transition Symbol?

First of all, please keep in mind that in Fargo’s case this par­tic­u­lar sym­bol equals two things: one could be a let­ter (or a group of let­ters or even a stand-alone word), and the sec­ond is a SVG code. Both are easy to include in the flow of your pho­tog­ra­phy web­site.

How do I add Such a Symbol?

Here’s what you need to do to insert a page tran­si­tion sym­bol with ease:

  • Log into your Word­Press dash­board
  • Go to Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → click on Gen­er­al (see screen­shot)
  • Write down a let­ter or a word that is rel­e­vant; usu­al­ly, most peo­ple use the first let­ter from the website’s name, but it’s not manda­to­ry (see video)

In case you want to play around with a SVG instead, you just need to copy-paste the code in the field (we rec­om­mend to use The Noun Project). Feel free to explore with what­ev­er rep­re­sents you best and fits the over­all look-and-feel of your web­site.

This article applies to Fargo, as they share the same underlying structure.
