Content Layout

Within Pages (Layout Paragraphs) there are two types of containers to hold your content. You can think of this like tables in software such as Microsoft Word or Excel. First you need to define the number of columns in your row which Pages (Layout Paragraphs) refers to as Sections. You can have up to four columns in a row. Once you have defined the number columns you would like in a Section, you can add a component(s) to each of your columns. A component can hold various types of content, such as images or text. An easy way to think of a component is a unique container that holds a piece(s) of content. 


Section

A section is the primary way to layout your content in a visually appealing way. The section is the foundation on which all your components will be inserted. You can have as many components as you like on your page. Typically a one column section at the top of the page with breadcrumbs and the page title is used most commonly. The section below would then be two columns 30% and 70% and hold your main menu navigation in the left column.

What is a section?

Using sections is an effective way to enhance the visual appeal of your content. When creating or editing content  in the web platform, a section refers to a group of fields that are logically grouped together. This grouping improves content editing usability by organizing related fields into manageable parts. Sections also help organize content visually; for example, a page might have a header section, a main content section, a sidebar section, and a footer section. These sections aid in structuring content and enhancing the user experience.


  1. Log in to your site.
  2. Click the edit link at the top of the page

  3. Select Columns to place your section horizontally. This should be used only with the Icon component.
