With Creator sites, you can easily add a professional website to your streaming profile. Creator Sites will aggregate your content across all of the supported platforms in one place and display it in an attractive, professional-looking template.

Live streamers are unique in that their online persona is their brand. Showing that off to potential sponsors and community members can be difficult when your brand is split between several different online platforms. We built Creator Sites to give streamers a way to consolidate their online brand, monetize their stream, and grow their online business. With Creator sites, you give your community a one-stop-shop to see of all the important information you want them to see.

Today, we are going to show how to create the perfect website using Creator Sites.

Getting Started

Creator Sites is a product of Streamlabs Prime. To publish your website and pick a custom domain, you will need to subscribe to Streamlabs Prime. However, to make sure a website is something you’d like to invest in, we do give everyone the option to completely customize a draft website so you know exactly what the final product will look like.

To edit your website, log in to Streamlabs.com and click on “Website”.

Customizable Design Aspects For Your Website
  1. Sight Design: Allows you to upload an additional background image and toggle on “Immersive Mode”, which will make the content blocks fill out the whole width of your website.
  2. Content Design: The “Section Vertical Padding” option allows you to adjust the verticle padding between content blocks on your website and change the color of the content blocks. Adding a “Component Border” allows you your to define your content blocks by giving them a border. The “Component Corner Radius” allows you to smooth out the edges of your content blocks, giving them a more rounded appearance.
  3. Typography: Allows you to choose the font used in your website. You can pick the heading color and body text color.
  4. Buttons: “Button Variant” lets you choose how you’d like the buttons on your page, like the donation button, to appear. You can choose to have your buttons rounded, sharp, hollow, or filled in with color.
  5. Navigation: The “Background Color” in the navigation section will customize the color at the top of our website where your social media links and links to other important pages (like your tip page) are included. “Logo Position” will change the location of your channel image. The default position is located on the left, or you can choose to move them to the center. “Scroll Position” will let you choose if you’d like your channel image to remain fixed on top of the page and always remain present when people scroll. You can also change the size of your logo and the shape.

Content

The content page allows you to choose what you’d like your viewers to see on your website. You can add multiple pages. For example, some people like their home page to focus on their live stream and have other pages focused on social media, or their merch store.

If you have a Streamlabs Merch Store or enabled Cloudbot, or Media Share, these pages will automatically appear in the “Auto-generated Pages Management” section. From here you can choose whether or not you’d like these to appear as separate pages on your website.
