Understanding Sections

Understanding Sections

Sections are the building blocks of a page. Each section can be individually customized, and has a hierarchy based on the elements within.


Sections are created by adding elements to your page. All you need to do is drag and drop elements from the content tray to the desired area on your page.


Add Sections

Use sections to display content in various layouts.

  1. Access the Sections menu.

  2. Choose a section category, then drag the section of your choice and drop it on your page.

Select content within the section to edit its properties.

Access Sections

Either hover over the content on your page and click to select a particular section, or click the content on your page and select a section from the dropdown list.

Customize Sections

Access a section and use the customization tools from the pop-ups.


Use shapers to add patterned layouts to your sections. Shapers provide color and design to give your content a distinctive look.


  1. Click a section on your page.

  2. Click the Settings option.

  1. Click the Shaper tab in the pop-up box on the right.

  2. Click the dropdown to select a shaper pattern.

         5. Click Change Shaper to try out different variants.

You can edit the shaper based on its properties. Some Shapers have transparency, while others have solid colors. You can also choose whether you want them to be displayed in mobile devices. You can edit these properties by toggling their settings in the pop-up tool box.

  • Click Change Shaper to select a new Shaper.

  • Click the pattern drop-down list to select a new pattern. You can also click None to remove the Shaper from your section. 

If you wish to select a section according to a particular type of content you want to add on your website, you can explore from the list of available section types.
