Change the QR Code Content

  1. Open the element's settings

  3. Fill out the below fields for the information to record on the QR code.
    1. NOTE: You can insert shortcode into almost any QR code content fields in the "General" tab.

Add a Logo or Short Text to the middle of the QR code

  1. Open the element's settings
  2. Under the "Design" tab, select either "Logo" or "Text" from the buttons.
    1. For a logo, upload an image to the "Center Logo" field.
    2. For text, add the content to the "Center Text" field.
      1. You can also change the text color with the "Center Text Color" field.
      2. 1-5 characters are recommended for the size as more characters will overflow the QR code or make it difficult for QR code applications to read it.
  3. You can choose to set a background color for the logo/text with the "Logo/Text Background Color" field.
  4. Click "Save" to apply the changes
  5. Update the page and view it to see the results!

Style the QR Code Colors

  1. Open the element's settings
  2. Under the "Design" tab, you can change the "Foreground Color" (default is black) and the "Background Color" (default is transparent).
    1. Your foreground and background colors should have a fairly high contrast so QR code applications can easily read it.
  3. You can also set a background image with the "Background Image" field.
    1. Your background image should be fairly plain and contrast with your foreground color.
    2. If you have a busy background image, choosing a 50% transparent background color might help QR code applications read it.
  4. Click "Save" to apply the changes
  5. Update the page and view it to see the results!

Change the QR Code Size

  1. Open the element's settings
  2. Under the "Design" tab, enter a maximum width in the "Width" field
    1. You can use any CSS unit (px, %, em), but it defaults to pixels if no unit is given.
    2. The default size of the QR code is 100% of the container with a max width of 1000 pixels.
  3. Click "Save" to apply the changes
  4. Update the page and view it to see the results!


Responsive behavior

Sizing note: the QR element is responsive, and will scale to fit the width of its container on smaller screen sizes.  This includes the logo and center text if they are applied to the element.
