Multi Columns component

The Multi Columns component is used to create two, three, four, or six additional columns of component drop zones within a section of a page. These columns are responsize within their design themes and will collapse and expand depending on device display width.

The Title and Options configuration dialog contains the following options:

  • Component Title¬†-¬†text input field that does not display for this component but useful for giving the component a title for keeping track of what it is used for on the page
  • CSS Class - text input field for custom CSS and/or utility classes
  • Number of Columns - select pulldown to choose 2, 3, 4, or 6 columns

NOTE: Use one of these per row of items you wish to display like this. Otherwise, variable item scaling will occur and vertical alignment will drift.
