Not sure what the difference between a section and a snippet is? A section holds the snippets that make up your page. Your page can include as little as one section, or as many sections as you want. Sections are great to use if you want to have different background images (or colors). A snippet is used to add your content (text/images/etc) inside of a section.
Adding a new section to your page:
- In the editor, click the “Add Content” button on the left menu. Then, click the green “Add Section” button.
- Next you will be prompted to choose a section style. Choose the one that best suits your needs. You can add and remove content snippets and adjust the styling of any section, so if you need to make adjustments, don’t worry!
- New sections are added to the bottom of your page, by default, but you can use the arrows in the lower right corner to move the section up and down.
Adding a content snippet to your page:
- In the editor, click the “Add Content” button on the left menu. You will be presented with a list of the various types of content snippets we offer. You can also use the “General” and “Viral Boost” links to narrow the snippet selection down.You can add additional columns to nearly any snippet after you’ve dropped it into place on your page.
- Once you find the snippet that best suits your needs, click and drag it onto your page where you want it to appear
- That’s it! You can add as many snippets to your page as you need.
Managing your sections:
- In the lower right corner of each section are the section options. With these you can adjust the section Design, adjust the Height, move the section Up and Down, and Delete the section.
- Clicking the Design button will open the design menu in the left panel.
- In the Design menu you can adjust your Background Settings, your section specific Design Options, and your Device Specific View Settings.With the Background Settings you can:

– Choose the max-width of your section
– Choose the default margins for your section
– Adjust the section Padding
– Decide whether you want to add a “Scroll to next section” button

- With the Device Specific Views Settings you can choose which devices you want your section to be visible on. This means that you can create a section for desktop viewers which is hidden on mobile and tablet devices, and another section for mobile viewers which is hidden on desktop devices.This is a great way to custom tailor your pages for the best viewing experience on each device.
Managing your content snippets:

For each snippet, you have options to Move the snippet, access the Design menu for the snippet, move the snippet Up or Down on the page, or Delete the snippet. Clicking a snippet will also bring up the option Content Section options. All the snippets in a particular section make up the Content Section. These options are found at the top and bottom of the Content Section. These allow you to manage the width and design options for the Content Section.
