Managing the Page Builder

Buck­et comes packed with a cus­tom page builder to allow you to cre­ate a mul­ti­tude of sta­t­ic page lay­outs, for you home page or oth­er inter­nal pages. You can see this in action in our demo home page or the oth­er exam­ple pages:

So how do you get to hav­ing such cool pages? Well that is very sim­ple.

First you cre­ate a new page and assign it the Cus­tom Page Com­pos­er tem­plate. Once you do that the inter­face changes allow­ing you to add blocks.

You have at your dis­pos­al 6 types of blocks.

Billboard Slider

This block type will allow you to intro­duce a fan­cy slid­er. You can con­trol the source of the posts (fea­tured, lat­est, lat­est from a cat­e­go­ry, etc), the num­ber of posts, the read more label, the tran­si­tion and whether or not to auto­play.

Posts Grid Cards

This block helps you intro­duce a sin­gle row of post cards (the space will be divid­ed by the num­ber of posts, so you should keep the num­ber of posts low — 3 or 4).

Hero Posts Module

This block will intro­duce a sec­tion that will fea­ture a large post image and a right side list of posts with thumb­nails.

Latest Posts

This block will show­case your lat­est posts in 2 or 3 columns set­up (when you dis­able the side­bar), with or with­out pag­i­na­tion.

Text/Image Block

This block allows you to input just about any­thing you want via a edi­tor. We rec­om­mend you keep thing sim­ple and add sim­ple ele­ments (like and add or an image) to keep the design con­sis­tent.

Heading Title

This is all the mag­ic behind the page builder.

This article applies to Bucket, as they share the same underlying structure.
