Creating Layouts

Layouts can be used to save templates of various content types that can later be duplicated, ensuring consistent formatting across your website. These content types can be saved as layouts:

  • Basic pages
  • Landing pages
  • Articles
  • Contacts
  • Events

Follow the instructions below to create a layout.

Step 1: Choose Which Kind of Layout to Make

The use for your layout will determine which content type to use. If it is a layout for new press releases, then you will likely need to make an Article layout. If you are creating a template to use for new pages on your site, then a Basic Page or Landing Page should be used.

Go to Content > Add Content and choose the content type that you want to use for your layout.

Step 2: Add Example Content for Formatting

Add content to your layout. Use the same fonts, text formatting, and page structure (like Rows & Card) that you want duplicated across your site when these layouts are used.

Step 3: Check the "Add to Layouts" Checkbox

Scroll down to the bottom of the editing screen. Near the Save button, you should see a checkbox labeled "Add to Layouts". Check this box.
