Content Element

03/08/2021

As part of Avada Layouts, we created a series of Dynamic Elements that help generate content in the Content Layout Section of a Layout. These are called Layout Elements. In this document, we look at the Content Element.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Layout Elements are only available when editing Content Layout Sections in Avada Layouts.

Overview

How To Use The Content Element

When you go to add an Element in a Content Layout Section, the Element dialog opens in a new tab called Layout Elements. This is where you will find the Content Element. These dynamic Elements can only be placed once into a Layout, with the exception of the Pagination Element, which can be placed twice.

The Content Element pretty much does what it says on the can, and allows you to add existing content anywhere in a Content Layout Section in any Layout.

You would use this, for example, on a single post or single portfolio layout, where the content element would pull the actual post content into your layout. Basically, the element grabs the editor content of a page or post, and you can add this content to the Content Layout Section of your Layout. With Avada 7.3, you can also add the Content Element into a Post Card.

Element Options

Location: The edit screen within each Element.

You can deploy as many individual Elements in pages and posts as you need, there is no limit. Within each of the Elements you will see a tab or tabs that house an array of options that make it possible for you to configure each Element independently, and greatly enhance your flexibility and creative options.

Note: The displayed option screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
