Container Elements

Container elements are special, smart elements that don't have a predefined content structure and they can contain other design elements inside.

These elements give you the freedom to build any kind of content structure inside them.

When these elements are empty, you'll see a blue plus icon in the content area. This signifies that you can add other elements inside.

Tip: Use columns to create complex design structures.

Let’s look at all the container elements included in the builder:


The Accordion element opens up content in a progressive manner. It has a stacked list of headers. User clicks on the header to view the content associated with it. Accordions are often used for displaying Frequently Asked Questions.


Tabs are an alternate way to present content. It helps you organize content into multiple panes, where each pane is viewable one at a time. User clicks on the tab header to view content under each tab.


Switcher element helps present two mutually exclusive options to the users. It is frequently used for providing monthly or yearly and yearly or life-time pricing options.


The timeline element helps you present a chronological sequence; it is an innovative way to tell a story. This element is great to share the company history, the story of a product's growth or highlight the important milestones and so on.


With the help of the carousel element, you can set up a collection of content cards that the user can browse by clicking on left or right arrows. It encourages user interaction and helps reduce clutter by showing a few cards at a time.


The column is a container element that allows you to place other elements or content inside of it. Columns usually remain hidden in the front end and are primarily used for organizing content within the page. Columns are useful to arrange content side by side.


Row is also a container element that allows you to place other elements or content inside of it. Like columns, rows also remain hidden in the front end and are used primarily to arrange content on a page. You can stack content one below the other in multiple rows using this element.


So, this sums up all the key features within the website builder. Now, go ahead and create your beautiful website and start marketing your website.
