Editing the page

Depending on the type of page you created, the editing form will look a little different. For basic pages that use the multi-column page layout, the editing form will appear as seen in the examples below.

Choose the number of columns for the page

In the “Page Options” section, “Number of Columns,” select the number of columns for content on the page. In the Multi-column page layout, a page may have one or two columns.

Learn more about adding content to Column 2.

Select Number of Columns

The most common page layout has one or two columns (the left navigation is not counted as one of the page columns). For best presentation, the contents of Column 2 should not exceed the length of the content in Column 1.

Example Multicolumn Page

Column 1 should contain your main/most important information. Column 2 can be used to display additional text, images and calls-to-action (buttons), just be sure to note that information in Column 2 will be moved below Column 1 content on mobile devices (see mobile screen capture below).
