The number of columns vary. Some pages will have two columns, each ½ of the page. Some will have three columns, each ⅓ of the page. Others will have one column of ⅓ page width and two columns of ⅔ page width. Some will have four, ¼ columns. The possibilities are endless!

  • The Second Row is where you edit the content in Column #2, etc.

  • Finally, many times there will be additional snippets inside of the Multiple Column Snippet. Don’t pay attention to the Multiple Columns Snippet — all it’s doing is adding some layout to your page. Instead, just focus on the snippet inside of the Multiple Column Snippet.
