Create page transitions for your site

Last Update: May 1, 2024
Page Transitions create a smoother surfing experience for your website visitors. There are two types of these transitions:
  • Page transitions: Add special effects when users go from one page of your site to another. The new page loads while the effect is taking place, making it seem like the page loads immediately. 
  • Preloader: A preloader adds a visual timer, such as a spinning circle, that shows visitors a page is loading. This is an indication that visitors should wait for for the page to load. Preloaders can operate when visitors arrive at your site and when they navigate between your site’s pages.

If you use both a preloader and page transitions, the preloader will be active when visitors first arrive at your site, and page transitions will work when they navigate between your site’s pages.

    To add an attribute to a link:

    1. In the panel, click the cog icon cog icon Create page transitions for your site 119 next to the link.
      Click the cgo icon next to the link Create page transitions for your site 121
      This will open the link attributes.
      Enter custom attribute Create page transitions for your site 123
    2. In the Custom Attributes text box, enter: data-e-disable-page-transition|true
