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