 +Real Geeks provides 5 customization options to make changes on the pages in your site.
  
-An optional feature used for organizing pages in a hierarchy.+{{ :​playground:​screen_shot_2019-03-12_at_12.38.28_pm.png?​600 |}}

-An example URL using the parent hierarchy is yourdomain.com/​recreation/​golf. ​ The Recreation page has been defined as the parent of Golf on the Golf page in the site backend. ​ Without defining Recreation as the parent, the URL for the Golf page would simply have been yourdomain.com/​golf.+===== Override Landscape Image =====
  
-Title: Appears in the title bar of your browser and is the first line of your Google search result.+Allows you to customize ​the main header photo at the top of your screenYou can select from our gallery of images, or upload your own custom image to represent the area you are trying to target ​
  
-===== Meta Description =====+**Gallery Image or Video:** Choose from our free gallery of high-quality images to customize your area or content page
  
 +**Custom Image or Video:** Feel free to upload your own custom image. ​

-===== Anchor Text/Page Name =====+===== Sidebar and Footer Options ​=====
  
 +You can create and add your own custom sidebars or footer to your page in this section. This allows you to add more customization to your pages. For example, you can create a page dedicated to a specific City within the area that you focus on, then create a custom sidebar that displays links to pages created for specific subdivisions in that City (e.g. The city of Dallas page has a sidebar that displays areas of the city (“Uptown”,​ “South Dallas” “Arts District”,​ “Victory Park”, etc..)
