Tilda Zero Block: how to customize your website

Website building platforms became popular for creating both a functional corporate site or landing page for special events. It's pretty easy to construct a website using pre-built templates and widgets. Yet, simplicity can be misleading. Often companies get frustrated with the result when their site looks like a clone of many others on the Internet.

One of the website builders we advocate is Tilda. It's a visual website design editor using an extensive collection of building "blocks" assembled and tested to look great on any platform or resolution. If the stock collection of "block" templates be insufficient, you can use 'Tilda Zero Block' to create a customized and unique visual design of website elements.

We described some essential tips working in Zero Block editor.1. Fit the textbox and images on any part of a layout. Think of it like a white sheet of paper where you can draw everything to your taste.
2. Upload pictures and create basic geometric figures. Move, resize, copy your objects.
3. Customize the text elements and their alignment, color, font size and weight, typeface, line spacing.
4. Any Zero Block can support basic animation and video.
5. Transform some Tilda blocks to the Zero by entering the settings of the block and selecting the "Convert to Zero block" button. When converting all pre-configured functionality and animation disappear.
6. Rule of the thumb is more customization - more work on adaptation to different devices you have to do later. Besides the primary desktop screen, there are four mobile device layouts available.
7. You don't have to remove the blocks that you no longer need. They can be hidden and made visible again.
8. The maximum height of the Zero block is 4000 px. If your page scroll length is longer than that you can extend it with a new block beneath.
9. To copy the existing element, click on the item and drag it to the target place on the page while holding down the Alt key. We do not recommend using standard copy-paste with ctrl+c / ctrl+v to avoid the copied elements placed on top of the original. It requires extra work to rearrange each copied element.
10. Do not put extra spaces and do not use Enter to carry over text to the next line, unless it's the beginning of a new paragraph. Text wrapping mobile versions result in extra line spaces.
11. To distinguish the look and feel of the same block in desktop/mobile you have two options. Create a separate block and specify to show in on mobile resolution only (0 to 980px). Alternatively, you can remove redundant elements or images by moving them out of a display area of the block to the grey zone. They will not be displayed on mobile devices.
12. Standard Tilda blocks already have all the markup and code to support adaptive interactive elements. You may enhance your Zero block elements further by implementing JavaScript code, but it requires some basic programming skills or searching the web for the right script.

A balancing rock also called balanced rock or precarious boulder, is a naturally occurring geological formation featuring a large rock or boulder, sometimes of substantial size, resting on other rocks, bedrock, or on glacial till. Some formations are known by this name only appear to be balancing but are in fact firmly connected to a base rock by a pedestal or stem.

No single scientific definition of the term exists, and it has been applied to a variety of rock features that fall into one of four general categories: - A glacial erratic is a boulder that was transported and deposited by glaciers or ice rafts to a resting place on soil, on bedrock, or on other boulders. It usually has a different lithology from the other rocks around it. Not all glacial erratics are balancing rocks; some are firmly seated on the ground. Some balancing erratics have come to be known as rocking stones, also known as logan rocks, logan stones, or logans because they are so finely balanced that the application of just a small force may cause them to rock or sway. A good example of a rocking stone is the Logan Rock in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom; another is the Trembling Rock in Brittany, France. - A perched block, also known as a perched boulder or perched rock, is a large, detached rock fragment that most commonly was transported and deposited by a glacier to a resting place on glacial till often on the side of a hill or slope. Some perched blocks were not produced by glacial action but were the aftermath of a rock fall, landslide, or avalanche.

An erosional remnant is a persisting rock formation that remains after extensive wind, water, and/or chemical erosion. To the untrained eye, it may appear to be visually like a glacial erratic, but instead of being transported and deposited, it was carved from the local bedrock. Many good examples of erosional remnants are seen in Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve in the Northern Territory of Australia. - A pedestal rock, also known as a rock pedestal or mushroom rock, is not a true balancing rock but is a single continuous rock form with a very small base leading up to a much larger crown. Some of these formations are called balancing rocks because of their appearance. The undercut base was attributed for many years to simple wind abrasion but is now believed to result from a combination of wind and enhanced chemical weathering at the base where moisture would be retained longest. Some pedestal rocks sitting on taller spire formations are known as hoodoos.
