Page Section component

The Page Section component renders a section html tag with a top & bottom padding. It can only be added directly to the Main Content parsys.


If you drag & drop a single Page Section to the page, you will see a default placeholder.

Page Section components in the Howlite project always have 12 columns. The components added inside can be resized to 1-12 columns.

If you need to resize or group content inside a page section use a Container component.

You can preview different types of Page Section variants with properly structured content, by drag & dropping one of the predefined layouts below to a page. See the layouts page for details.
