The Side Panel Editor Explained

What is the Side Panel Editor?

The Side Panel Editor (pictured below) is the settings dialog for the Headline section and contains tools that will allow you to edit and modify your Headline section. It is comprised of a blue handlebar and four distinct drop-down tabs (indicated by a down arrow), which contain specific editing tools. 

You can access the Side Panel Editor in one of two ways:

  1. The gear icon - Click on the gear icon within the Headline section to open the Side Panel Editor (pictured below).
  2. Upload a photo - When a photo is uploaded to the Headline section, the Side Panel Editor will automatically open the Image Tab, so you can begin editing the section.

Layout Tab

The Layout Tab allows you to choose from one of seven layouts in the following three categories

  • Edge-to-Edge Layout - Display your image without any padding (i.e. white space) between the sections directly above and/or below the Headline section.
  • Inset Layout - Display your image with padding (i.e. white space) between the sections directly above and/or below the Headline section.
  • Text Only Layout* - This layout only includes the Title, Caption, and Button(s).

*NOTE: In the Side Panel Editor, the Text Only layout option appears as the last choice, under both the Edge-to-Edge and Inset layout options.

Hints:

  1. Inset layouts work great for smaller images or images with a portrait (vertical) orientation.
  2. Use one of the Half Width layout options if you do not want the text, caption and button(s) to overlap the image.

Here are the layout options available in the Layouts Tab:
