Section blocks

Add and customize content within a section using section blocks

Many sections contain section blocks. These are blocks of content that you can add, configure, hide, reorder within a section, and remove.

An example of a content block is a slide in a slideshow section. You can configure each slide, hide a slide, reorder slides, and remove or delete a slide.

Adding blocks

Each section that supports blocks will have the option to add a block. For example, with the Slideshow section, adding a new block is called Add Slide.

Removing blocks to add new blocks

Some sections will have a limit to the number of blocks that can be added. For example, with the Custom content section, there is a limit of 2 blocks (2 columns). You can easily delete a block to add a different type of block:

Broadcast includes a Custom content section which is a powerful and flexible section to use on any page. Each of the two blocks can be any of the following:

  • Image

  • Text

  • Newsletter

  • Testimonial

  • Product

  • Video

  • Collection

Using only one block will make it the content for the entire section. For example, you can use Custom content's Image block alone to display a hero-style banner. If you add a second block, the section becomes two columns.

Block settings

Similar to sections, each block has its own settings. These settings are where you customize the content inside your sections:
