The following video provides an overview on how to edit the layout of a page. Read further for more detailed information on editing your page layout.
Pages in a website theme consist of three main sections:
Changes made to header and footer areas are applied to all pages in the theme. Changes made to the body area only affect the page you are currently editing.
Content consists of rows and columns. Rows and columns are used to ensure your site will be responsive on all devices. As the device size reduces, rows will stack to ensure that your content is always viewable.
The height of the rows and the width of columns is adjustable. The number of columns within a row is also adjustable.

- Click and drag the sizing handle up or down to increase or decrease the height of the row.
To adjust the width of a column:

- Click and drag the sizing handle left or right to increase or decrease the width of the column.
