You can have multiple rows inside a container, and each row can have up to four columns.

To create a container:

  1. In the content edit page, open or create the item to which you want to add a container.

  2. Toward the right of the widget, select more_horiz > Overrides. A widget appears.

  3. Expand Module Placement. Drop-down lists Above, Aside, and Below appear for the container’s position. (For an illustration of these positions, see the diagram Examples of module placement.)

  4. From one of the drop-down lists, select Replace. (For an explanation of the possible selections for module placement, see Module Placement.)

  5. Click add_circle_outline, and select Container Module. A form appears.

  6. In the Title field, enter a title.

  7. In the Description field, enter a description for the container.

  8. Under Rows, click add_circle_outline, and select the number of columns you want to include in this row. A form appears for each column.

  9. For each column’s form, do the following:

    1. Click add_circle_outline, and select the component you want to appear in the column. A form appears to design the component.
    2. Complete the form.
    3. Repeat steps a–b to add additional components to the column. Your form looks similar to the following:
