Gently remind your website visitors to scroll down the page to view more content with the Below the Fold widget for Adobe Muse.
It’s a well-known design concept to place your most important content at the top the page, or above the fold, to give it its proper title. It’s easy, however, for people’s attention to be captivated and forget to scroll down the page, especially if they fill the screen.
The Below the Fold widget displays a small popup message at the bottom of the browser if the page has not been scrolled for a set amount of time after loading. Great for single page designs!
Browse to the location where you downloaded the widget file. Extract the contents of the file. Double-click the .mulib file to import it into the Library. This will launch Muse if it's not already open.
Alternatively, once you’ve unarchived the file, you can import the widget into the library by clicking the Import Muse Library icon at the base of the Library Panel.
Once it's imported the new widget will appear in the Library panel as a folder containing one or more items..
Start by dragging and dropping the Below the Fold widget onto the canvas from the Library. The placeholder image is just for show and won't appear when the site's previewed or published.
The first option is the image file for the popup message. You can use the supplied image or create your own. Images can be in .gif, .png and .jpg format. There's no limit to the size of the image but make sure it will fit all screen sizes!
Change the settings to determine how the popup appears.
That's it for the setup. We can test the widget by previewing it within Muse or in the browser.
Note: Occasionally, the popup will fail to display if the preview takes too long to render. Refresh the view or upload the site to a temporary Business Catalyst site.
