Landing pages - Part 3: Edit the settings of all the elements of your landing page

Now that you've arranged your sections on your landing page, it's time to fill them with elements such as Text, Images, or buttons. In this article, you will learn more about how to set up the sections, rows, columns and elements to create the best landing page!

We've created a series of articles to help you build your landing pages. 

💡 Good to know
Landing pages are available for Premium and Enterprise plans.

In this tutorial:

Common settings

Some settings are common between sections, rows and columns (and even elements). We'll first describe the common settings, and then more specific ones.

Spacing

First, choose if you want to edit Vertical or Horizontal padding and margin. 

A margin is a space outside something, whereas padding is the space inside something.

  • Margin: This creates space around your component, outside of any defined borders.
  • Padding: This creates space inside your component, between the icon and the border.

You can choose between different types of spacings between XS (smaller) to XL (bigger).

Visibility

These settings have no visual impact in the editor. They only affect published pages to prevent you from losing track of content within the editor.

  • Hide on Tablet: For each section of your landing page, you can control its visibility by device, within the edit section. 
  • Hide on Mobile: For each section of your landing page, you can control its visibility by device, within the edit section.

Background Color and Background Image

From here you can add a background color and add transparency.

For the background image you can add an image from your computer, our image gallery or using an URL. Our image gallery gathers hundreds of stock photos (royalty-free) that you can use to illustrate your landing page.

💡 Good to know
The color of your text will automatically change depending on the background color.

Sections

Here you can name your section. The name will appear when you navigate in Layout from the left panel.

Rows

You can edit the settings of a row navigating in the Layout tab from the left panel, as we saw in Landing pages - Part 2: Define the structure on your Landing Page. You can also use the breadcrumb trail that appears at the top of your screen when you click an element.
