Section blocks

Add and customize content within a section using section blocks

Many sections contain section blocks. These are blocks of content that you can add, configure, hide, reorder within a section and remove. An example of a content block is a slide in a slideshow section. You can configure each slide, hide a slide, reorder slides and remove or delete a slide.

Adding blocks

Each section that supports blocks will have an option to add a block. For example, with the Slideshow section, adding a new block is called Add Slide.

If the section is closed, click on the expand triangle icon which is left of the section title

Removing blocks to add new blocks

Some sections will have a limit to the number of blocks that can be added. For example, with the Custom content section, there is a limit of 2 blocks (2 columns). You can easily delete a block to add a different type of block:

Custom content has 2 columns, each column is a block

Pipeline includes a Custom content section which is a powerful and flexible section with one or two columns. Each of the two blocks can be any of the following:

  • Image

  • Text

  • Newsletter

  • Video

  • Product

  • Collection

Using only one block will make the entire section that content. For example, you can use Custom content's Image block alone to display a hero-style banner. If you add a second block, the section becomes two columns.

Block settings

Similar to sections, each block has its own settings. These settings are where you customize the content inside your sections:

Each block type will have a different content settings
