Managing the Content Builder

Orga­niz­ing your con­tent with PILE is a sim­ple and intu­itive process! Thanks to the drag-and-drop inter­face you can eas­i­ly add dif­fer­ent types of blocks to cre­ate a cus­tom page lay­out. Move, resize and align them to bet­ter match your con­tent.
The builder can be used by default on Projects and through all Pages by select­ing the Page Builder tem­plate.

Adding Blocks

Go to the project or the page that you want to add con­tent and use the two but­tons at the top of the Project » Con­tent Builder sec­tion:

  • Image Block – Add a sin­gle image.
  • Text Block – Add text, includ­ing head­ings, quotes, links, lists or short­codes.


Resizing Blocks

Blocks can take up to the full width of the page con­tent. To bet­ter keep the con­sis­ten­cy through­out the site, you can choose between four sizes: one-third, two-thirds, one-half and full width.

Aligning Blocks

By default, blocks are aligned ver­ti­cal­ly and hor­i­zon­tal­ly (eg. mid­dle). Use the Align Con­tent but­ton to change their posi­tion and eas­i­ly cre­ate a dynam­ic flow­ing lay­out.
There are three steps where you can move the con­tent, in all four direc­tions (top, bot­tom, right, left):

  • 1x – to the edge of the con­tain­er (vis­i­ble only if the con­tent is small­er than the con­tain­er)
  • 2x – over the grid gut­ter
  • 3x – over the near­by block
