Area & Block



Class and templates

Concrete5 has developed tools to customize the content of a three-level different page. It can take some time for the taming but once acquired, these tools become very powerful aids to create a visually rich and content-rich.


Three levels, two fashion ...

Depending on the design or functionality to the content we will add a class on the block, on the area or on a Layout and then change the template for the block or layout ...

In general (not all the time), areas classes are larger than the block class, classes of Areas rather act on the design while blocks of classes rather act on a feature of the block, much like an option complementary. But I insist that these are general rules because of block classes sometimes are design classes.

How to use

Block classes & templates

Once added a block on a page you can click on it and select the Design & Custom Template menu item. Then in the top bar click the gear, it will show the selection panel classes and templates. Click in the class and you will see a list, make your choice. Several classes are selectable.

Once added, click the label of one of these columns (Column 1 Column 2, ...) and choose Edit Layout Design. In the top bar click the gear, it will show the selection panel classes and templates.
