Page tree

To use columns on a page, you need to first define a vertical "section" on the page using the section macro. You can then insert one or more columns into that section using the column macro.

Note that this is different from the page layout in the editor!

Add Section To The Page

  1. Edit the page
  2. Select Insert more content from the toolbar
  3. Select Other macros
  4. Search for "Section"
  5. Select the Section macro
    Select Macro Browser Dialog with Section Macro Higlighted
  6. The screen for the section macro will now appear. You can elect to add a border to the section and any columns within it by checking the Show border box.

Add Columns To The Section

  1. Select Insert more content on the toolbar while your cursor is positioned inside the section element on the page
  2. Select Other macros
  3. Search for "Column"
  4. Select the Column macro
  5. Set the width of column by using percentage of the screen width or a fixed size in pixels
    Insert Column Macro Dialog with Column Width
  6. You can add text inside the column element that now appears on the page. All content within a section must be inside a column macro! Content cannot exist inside the Section macro outside of a Column macro. 
  7. When you add more columns to the same section, be sure to position your cursor inside the section element but outside the previous column element (otherwise, you will nest the new column inside the existing column). Here is the edit view of a page with three columns defined:
