Creating Custom Layout Sections
The page reloads and the Layout is added to Avada Layouts. At this point is has no conditions set, and no Custom Layout Sections added. Now we have a 404 Layout, we can begin to create the Layout Sections that we will add to it. In this example, we will add both a Custom page Title Bar and a Content Layout Section.
You can create a Custom Layout Section for your 404 Layout in one of two ways. You can head to the Layout Sections page at Layouts > Layout Sections from the Avada Dashboard, and create one from there, as seen below.
Alternatively, you can create one by clicking on the corresponding Layout Section in the existing Layout, and create one from there. The first method just creates a Layout Section, while the second method attaches it to a Layout at the same time. There’s no wrong way to do this, but it’s important to know the differences.
So to create and add the Page Title Bar Layout Section, I would click on the Select Page Title Bar section of the Layout, and in the following dialog, under the New Section tab, I would give it a name (404 PTB would be appropriate) and click on Create New Section. I would then repeat this process for the Content Layout section (404 Content).
This creates and connects the two Layout Sections to the Layout, but at this point, they are still empty. If we mouse over the Layout Section on the Layout, as shown below, we can click on the edit icon to design and build our two Layout Sections.
