Page Layout & Widgets

The Row Widget - Format your page with columns

If you need to add multiple columns to a web page to organize content, this is the widget commonly used. You can also stack rows to go from a 2-column (50%-50%) layout to a 3-column (33%-33%-33%) layout. The row widget creates comprehensive layouts and makes pages come alive by displaying your content in just the right way.

The HTML WYSIWYG Widget - The basic widget for text and images

The WYSIWYG widget is hands-down the most commonly used widget in the publishers arsenal. Use this widget to add text and images to a page. You will have a full toolset for applying styles to your content. You won't use it to set fonts, colors and font-sizes… as this is set higher up in your website's CSS. The idea here is to use the styles that are available in a manner that makes each of your web pages (despite being developed by multiple people in your organization) look consistent, and clean across your site.
