What is a content section and how does it work?

A content section is an element in the Website Creator editor into which you can then place content such as text, images, forms, etc. It absolutely needs at least one section on each page, otherwise you cannot place any content. Normally, when creating a new page, a new, empty content section is automatically inserted. The sections are marked with a light green frame.

You open the management of the content sections in the editor in the toolbar on the left via “Change order” (third icon from the top). Here sections can be created, renamed, changed the order or deleted.

You can create as many sections as you like, design them and use them for layout structure and design.

You can move the sections or change the order and everything within the section will be moved with it. This allows you to quickly and easily move groupings without having to move each individual element.

Click “Change order” on the left menu to open the administration.

Use a background color or image to make a section stand out and add a bit of variety to your site. This also gives your website structure and you can also apply effects to the sections.

«Change order» functions

  • Add: Add a new content section via «New section».
  • Order: Drag and drop a section to a new position within this view.
  • Delete: A section can be deleted with the x symbol at the top right of the respective section. Caution: All elements within the section will also be deleted!

What settings can I make?

You open the settings of a content section via the gear icon at the top frame of the content section.

Open the content section settings via the gear icon.

Surname
Define a name for the section. This is then displayed as a selection option when using an anchor link. However, the name will not appear anywhere on the website itself.

ID
Define a name for the section. This is then displayed as a selection option when using an anchor link. On the website itself the ID needed to use an anchor link. If no ID is defined, the content section cannot be used as an anchor link either.

The ID name appears as #name in the URL (e.g. mywebsite.com/contact#map). The field can be left blank if no anchor link is needed. The ID must not start with a number and must not contain any umlauts or spaces.
