Column Options

The columns are alwsays added inside the rows. You may find more information about Row in this post and more details about the Row Responsive options can be found in this post. of the theme documentation. Also, more examples can be found following Rows&Columns page.

After you create a row, you may divide it into columns to structure the content. Find the columns icon in the top left corner of the row and divide the row into the preset columns. You may also select Custom columns settings and insert the needed values.

You may use fractions or span tags to specify columns. Note, the page consists of 12 columns – keep that in mind while dividing the row.

As an example, you may divide the row into 4 columns with 1st and 3rd smaller ones using such division: span2 + span4 + span2 + span4 or 1/6 + 1/3 + 1/6 + 1/3.

Similarly, you may divide the row into 5 equal columns. However, you’ll have to set 1 column as left and right paddings: span1 + span2 + span2 + span2 + span2 + span2 + span1 or 1/12 + 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/12.
