Each page of your course website has multiple sections. For example, the homepage has the 8 sections listed below.
- Course Summary
- Pricing or Call-to-Action
- Learning Objectives
- Course Outline
- Teacher(s) short bio
Most sections on a page will have at least 2 layout options available to choose from.
The terms layout and design can sometimes overlap and mean the same thing. However, we'll refer to "layout" as the positioning of content in a section and refer to "design" as the style of the content (colors, fonts, backgrounds, etc).
You can change the layout of a webpage section by choosing a different Layout Template.
Choose a section layout template
Select your course from the My Courses screen and navigate to the Website Editor.
When the Website Editor loads, hover over the desired section to reveal the Edit Section button and click it to open the Design & Layout menu.
For this example we'll change the layout of the course website's homepage header section.
Please note: For some sections the Edit Section button is labeled with the name of the section. However, it will always appear on the left side with vertical text. In this example the button is labeled Header Section (see screenshot below).
If a section has layout choices available you'll the Section Layout Template heading at the top of the Design & Layout menu as shown in the screenshot below.
Click the arrow next to Section Layout Template (as pointed out in the screenshot above) to expand and view the layout template choices for the section. The currently selected layout will be checked or highlighted.
To update the section layout, hover and click one of the alternate options.
After making your selection the website preview frame will reload and show the updated layout.
