Under “Layout Elements” choose the containers for your content. For example, you can press ½ ¼ ¼ to create one large column on the left with two smaller columns on the right.

You can stack sections on top of one another so don’t feel constrained by the column setting.

Fill the columns with content boxes under “Widgets” or “Content Elements”. The elements used most often are:

  • Text Block
  • Special Heading
  • Icon Box

By scrolling down the screen, you will be able to see the layouts and elements you have selected and you will be able to drag the different elements into the different layout containers, before filling them up with pictures, words, links and videos.
