Build Your Own WordPress Page Layouts with iThemes Builder
With iThemes Builder, you can design your own page layouts with different design elements called Modules. You can totally change the look of the theme just by changing the order of the modules your layouts.
Sheridan offers the following modules, or page elements, to build your layouts:
- Header Module: This module offers an easy-to-configure header for your site, including the option to use your WordPress site title or custom text.
- Navigation Module: Default, Full Width Background – This module adds a mobile-responsive horizontal navigation bar.
- Image Module: Default, Full Window, No Spacing – This module adds an image to your page layout. This can be used to add static headers or just something to spice up your layout.
- Content Module: This module adds a place for the content to render. Most layouts will have this module.
- HTML Module: This module gives you a place to add freeform HTML to the layout. It also supports the use of shortcodes and execution of PHP code.
- Widget Bar Module: Default – This module can contain one to five widget locations that are displayed as columns.
- Footer Module: This module adds a place for the footer to render. Most layouts will have this module at the bottom of the layout.
