Working with columns can be great way to lay out your content in a much more readable way, allowing your readers to be able to easily digest the words or pictures if combined together if a suitable fashion. For content & text, I would recommend two columns (one for text, other for images). If you have smaller images, such as small images (200 x 200), you can do four columns. The recommended amount is based on your content needs, but most do not need more than two or three.
- First, click on the plus sign encircled on the toolbar located above the content section. This will bring a drop down into existence.
- Click on either the most used, or scroll down and click on the layout elements sections. Either accordion will display the columns icon.
- Click on the columns icon.
- Once you have clicked on the columns icon, it will create a block that looks like this:
- They greyed out three columned icon is just displaying that you are in a columns block.
- The second icon, the rectangle with two smaller rectangles on either side, means to make it the columns a wider width, but not a full width.
- The third icon is the full width icon. This makes the columns the full width of the page.
- The vertical ellipsis is the settings option for the block.
- The plus icon means to "add" another column in between the left and right.
- Next, you would type in each column, finish your copy, and then preview or publish the page.
