What's your idea for The Knot?

Additional Theme Customizations

Several aspects of the website theme could be more customizable, such as font capitalization (instead of all caps), edit size/type of "and" between names (personally I'd prefer a fancy ampersand), edit size/type of countdown (the default is so tiny), and the option for social media icons on the home page (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc).

    2018 is going to be our year for more customization in our Wedding Website themes. This is still a work in progress, but we have done some user testing and are narrowing down our top features that need some love. Thank you for the feedback! It always helps to hear from members!

    Enjoy!

        Hi Keri - is there webcode we can use to link to images within specific text areas of the website? For ex., we'd like to feature hotel room images on the accommodations section of the page and I'm wondering if there's an HTML shortcut or specific in-text language I can use to link to images?

        Agree - it would be great if it could at least have The Knot's logo as the favicon while the product team works on a custom solution.

        YESSS to this!!! This detail makes the page look like it is a fake page or still loading or something. Not beautiful. At the very least starting with a templatized one would be great.

        Nice website...very helpful.However, I am having issues because all the letters are lower case even names?! This is vital

        You guys can spend money to create your own site, buy a domain, and choose/buy a layout then customize it however you feel but remember this wedding website is offered to you for free. It is limited in its capabilities and options because it is free. Ideas and suggestions are wanted and necessary but don't be so angry because it's not exactly what you want. You get what you pay for and since you're not paying for anything, I think you're getting quite a bit!
        I did my wedding website through them and I was very thankful that it was easy and free - less stress when planning a wedding. Thank you to The Knot!

        I agree with the above comment. Although I did find out how to change the size of the countdown font and background colour, I can't find a way to add other images/graphics other than the main photo. I don't find it particularly personalised and would like to have added a couple of graphics used in our invites etc. This is why I chose to use a different site.

        I was able to change the fonts on a template to my wedding colours but there was nothing I could do about the background. kind of disappointing. maybe something that could be improved for future brides.

        is there any way to edit the html/css of the knot websites?I'd like to do some basic adjustments to my page.

      • A commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Seriously this is terrible. Like someone else said, the colors of the designs are so limited that it's impossible to find one that matches the wedding colors I'm using. Why can't I change the background color of a template if I like the style? This needs to be a feature, especially if you aren't going to offer an option for those with a little HTML knowledge to customize their pages as they like.

        Upper and lower case type should be a VERY BASIC feature! Can't believe this is not addressed!

      • Christy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am shocked that background colors on website themes cannot be adjusted to match wedding colors. My wedding colors are a wisteria purple and pale yellow and I cannot find a single theme that has any type of light purple or yellow. Other wedding websites allow background color changes and The Knot, being as wonderful of a website as it is, should be able to do this as well.

        It would be great if they have more black themes so I can have a jet black iPhone 7 themed website

      • Carol commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I was having trouble changing colors and I noticed it used the #000000 format that Costco Photo Center uses when creating projects. So I just go into Costco, pick my color I want, see what the # is and copy that in to the # area in my website. Like for blue is #0000FF.

        You may be able to "change" some of the settings of you're theme....but it only works for the first page.....if you click on accommodations it reverts back to the original theme fonts and text color......almost pointless to even customize the setting because it ends up look ridiculously stupid when only the home page of the website is customizable click to different page, looks like it could be a completely different website due to the changes only effect the home page......no sense in trying to my website my own cuz it will look (again) stupid......maybe fix this

        The theme I chose (Lace and Kraft) offers multiple colors of invitations but I can only choose one of them on the knot.. I'd like to be able to match the color of my invitations and website.

      • Kateland Vu commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The all caps on the headers need to have a choice to be either no caps or all caps
        Even I want more black themes for a jet black inspired iOS and Thomas blog
        Also I want unlimited creation of custom pages
        Please the knot I want these
