Add Items to Your Section

Once you choose a layout to use, select Choose items in the editing panel to start adding items to your section. You can search and filter items to find what you want, or you can add a new item. Tick the box next to each item you want to include, then click Save to see the selected items on the page in the editor.

Customise Your Section


Depending on which layout you’re using, you will see various options. Click on any item in the list in the editing panel to see its location in the section and make changes. You can also toggle off some of the options such as the section title, or add and remove items. To rearrange items within the section, click and drag an item up or down in the editing panel.

Note: Masonry style layouts require six items. If you have fewer than six items, select one of the other layouts instead.

Review all of your options in the editing panel to see what you can customise for the specific section type you’ve chosen.
