There' also a view mode hyperlink at the bottom right of your web page - you can use both. You' ll find that the website your are looking at in edit mode is different - it appears as a long series of numbers and characters instead of your regular web page name.

Creating a Website - Your Guide
These guidelines will help you get your first Jimdo website off the road. Customize your website with different options - modify font, color, etc. Jimdo has a number of tools to help you get up and running, such as our support center, tutorial videos, other guidelines, and blogs, if you have a question not covered in this book.
If you are in edit mode, you will see a side bar with choices on the right. "When you first registered for a Jimdo website, you were asked to select a style sheet. Don't be worried about your choice at this point, because you can modify your submission at any moment without loosing your job.
Your website templates define the fundamental look and feel of your website, so you don't have to rebuild every page from the ground up. Your templates determine, for example, the position of the logotype and headers, the side bar, the width of the contents area and much more. Regardless of which style sheet you select, you can always append and reorder your contents - or modify your font and color - but some parts of the style sheet stay the same.
Or in other words, there is no pure "restaurant" or "dentist" style sheet - you can use any style sheet! Keep in mind that the templates you select will be applied to every page of your website. When you are satisfied with the original you began with, continue and jump to the next section.
In order to see more templates available, login to your website and click on Design > Templates in your menus. You will see your most recent artwork on the sidebar to the right. Browse through the other document settings and if you see one you like, choose Preview. It shows you how your website will look with the new one.
