The new Learnyst website builder will help you design a multi paged website without any design experience.

In this article, let me give you some quick tips to customize your website pages using rows, blocks and columns.


Blocks, Rows & Columns

The Blocks, Rows & Columns elements enable you to create the structure of your page. They are also called container elements because they contain other elements like images, buttons, texts and so on.

A page is composed of multiple blocks:

  • This is a Block

  • A Block can have Rows inside it

  • A Row will have Columns inside it (at least one)

  • A Column contains the actual content elements inside it like images, texts, buttons and more.

  • You can add content elements directly in your blocks without the need of Rows & Columns, but if you want to structure & design your page in a specific way you'll need Rows & Columns because they come with important options like widths, heights, background colors, alignment, shadows, padding, margins and more.

Tip: Use Rows to duplicate repeating content like features, partner logos or any repeating content that you want to display on multiple rows.

Tip: The use of Rows & Columns gives you more options and thus more flexibility when working in responsive views.

How to add a Block

  • You can choose from hundreds of premade blocks or start from scratch and create your own. There are a couple of ways to add blocks on your page:

  • When you have an empty page, press the big card in the middle of the screen

  • Add a block anytime by using the Shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+A on Windows or CMD+SHIFT+A on a Mac. This will add the block at the bottom of your page.

  • Scrolling down the page and pressing the Add New Block card at the bottom.

  • Or, add a block at a specific location between other blocks, by pressing the blue plus icon that appears at the bottom of each block.

How to add Rows & Columns

  • Locate the Row & Column elements in the left elements panel

  • Add a Row or Column by dragging it into a block on your page.

  • Rows come with 2 columns by default. If you delete all columns in a Row, the Row will be deleted as well.

Tip: Control the Width of columns by dragging the blue handle between the columns.
