When creating websites in the Designer it's important to be familiar with the three building blocks that make up all your pages and contain your content: rows, columns and modules.

What is a row?

A row is a horizontal section on your page that contains content, for example images, text, a contact form, etc. When you open your website and want to edit it for the first time, it already contains some rows with content.

If you want to add more rows to a page, hover on an existing row and click + Add row on the blue bar.

You can also add rows to the header and footer of your website in which cases the Add row button will appear in the magenta-indicated sections. Note: Updates in the magenta-indicated Header and Footer sections will appear on all pages of the webpage to maintain consistency of design.

It's easy to modify, rearrange, copy and delete rows - and to adjust their width, add animations to them, hide them on specific viewports (desktop, tablet or mobile phone), and more. Read much more about managing your rows here.

What is a column?

Columns are vertical "pillars" within a row that contain modules (your content). Inside a row you can have up to 12 columns for organizing your content.

Columns make it easy for you to split up your content within a row while making sure that everything is structured and aligned in a way that's easy to overview and work with.

If you want to add one more column next to an existing one, double-click on the column and select Add column from the dropdown. Read much more about managing your columns here.

Working with empty columns: A column doesn't necessarily need to have any modules in it. You can add empty columns on both sides of a column with content to make sure that it's centered within the row with an equal amount of space on either side. An empty column can also simply be added to create space between two content elements on your website.

What is a module?

Modules are placed inside columns and contain your content. You can add different types of modules depending on your content. Text goes in the Text module, images in the Image module, maps in the Map module, etc.

You add a new module by hovering either on an empty column or on an existing module on your website and selecting + Add module.

Rearranging content

After you've added some content to your website, you may at one point want to arrange it differently, move it around, delete some of it, etc.

You can easily duplicate, copy or delete rows/columns/modules from their respective menus.

If you want to move rows/columns/modules to other places on your page, you can drag them using the dotted symbol next to the tabs.
