The multi-column component provides a way to display content across multiple columns on a page.

Select the Multi-Column component from the side panel and drag it to the place where you want it to appear on the page.

Properties window

After placing the component on the page, open its properties by clicking on the configure (wrench) icon. From here, you can adjust the settings of the component.

The multi-column component displays content across two, three, four, or six columns on a page.
The multi-column component displays content across two, three, four, or six columns on a page.

With the properties window open, you can give the component a title (for use in a reference component) and select the number of columns to display.

You can choose two, three, four, or six columns in the component. These numbers are intentional and are set to fit within the responsive template. When accessed on a mobile device or tablet, the coding will allow for the content within the columns to display properly.

Once you have the number of columns selected, close the properties by clicking the check mark.

To add content to a column, drag the component you wish to feature to it. Add text, images, media files, or other content as you would if it were a standalone component.

Please note: If you cut the number of columns from a higher number to a lower one, remove the components within the columns to be cut before making that change.
