Additional Page Content Layout Modules

Depending on your site configuration you may be able to add Page Blocks to a general web page. These will allow you to add specific page content layout elements to a given page.

Page Blocks/Page Panels are additional elements that you can add to a basic page with our CMS. Within these Page Blocks/Page Panels you can add various Page Component elements. These elements are then used to layout content within one of our available Content Layout Modules.

The page example to the left shows how a page block or page panel is added to a standard web page.

Depending on your site configuration, you may be able to add various page components within a page block or page panel.

Click here to see a list of the different Page Components available.

If these are not available then please contact us about upgrading your site to add these.

Changing the order of Page Blocks

If you have multiple Page Blocks on a page, you can re-order them to display in the order you wish. To do this, simply locate the blocks in the edit tree, then click, hold and drag them up and down to change their order. Please note that the CMS lists blocks in reverse order - meaning the block at the bottom will be the first shown on the page. Once you have re-ordered the blocks, you need to Publish the site in order for any changes to appear.
