The Avada Live Content Creation Process
Creating pages with Avada Live is very similar to the back-end method, only it’s done directly on the front-end page. The same controls are available to add containers, columns and elements, and the only real difference is the workspace.
Step 1 – Add A Container (And Columns)
The first thing to do on a new page is to add a Container. The Avada Builder Starter Page has a big blue ‘Add Container’ Button, which when clicked opens the Add Containers Dialog. Here you can add an empty container if you wish, but more commonly, you add a container with columns already inside. There is a range of column combinations you can add with the Container, and this forms the basis of the start of your layout. You can add as many Containers into the page as you wish, and as many Columns inside the Containers as well, but Elements must be inside a Column.
To add further Containers once a Container is one the page, simply mouse over the Container Controls, and select Add Containers, as shown below. The usual Containers window will pop up, allowing you to again add either an empty container or one with columns already added to it.
Step 2 – Add Columns
If you have added an empty Container, the next step is to add a column, or columns to it. This is done by clicking the Add Columns icon in the middle of the Container. This brings up the full range of Column combinations for you to add.
If you wish to add further Columns to your Container, simply mouse over the Column controls and select the Add Column icon. This will again bring up the Add Column window where you can choose the Column layout to add to the container.
Step 3 – Add Elements
Once you have your Column or Columns inserted, there will now be an ‘Add Element’ icon in the middle of the column. Click this to bring up the Elements window and select the Element you’d like to add.
To add further Elements to a Column, simply mouse over the current Element and choose the Add Element option. Again, the Element Window will pop up and when you add the next Element, it will be inserted directly below the previous Element.
Step 4 – Rinse and Repeat
Continue building your page by adding Containers, Columns, and Elements. You can add new Containers to the page at any time, you can add more Columns to existing Containers, and you can add as many Elements as you wish in any Column.
