Types of blocks

You can add a block in any layout. Here are the different blocks :



this is a main container that can make separations into your page to give multiple page background for example



this is a line that can contain multiple columns. You decide how many columns to create and place any other blocks in the columns


Single module

this is a block that will contain only one module


Aligned modules

this block contains from 2 to 5 modules. You can choose how many modules you want by clicking on the “layout” icon in the control bar (you must hover the block to see the control bar)


Horizontal menu

this is a specific block where you can publish a menu module. The CSS will be generated to make a dropdown menu that you can style in the Template Creator interface



it will show your logo (that you can define into template creator and also in the template options once installed into the website)

You can choose if you want to show the slogan or not,  which is a text that comes under the image. You can also add a link on the logo

this is a specific block type. It has nothing in it, but you can write any code you want. For example some PHP, HTML or else, if you want to add something special into your template.
