Open "Theme Options -> Custom Code"

If you want to add a quick custom code to the theme, you can do it in Theme Options -> Custom Code

For example your Google Analytics code can be pasted into the "Custom Tracking/Analytics" field.

Before you start

It is important that you create a parent category for all your blog categories. In the above screenshot we have a parent category called "Uncategorized" and several sub-categories under it. Please replicate a similar structure before doing the next steps in this lesson.

As you can see, there are 2 buttons in the middle of the canvas. These are used to add new Rows. Click the button at the top.

See the result & Click the Add New Row button at the bottom of the Canvas

We have now successfully added a new Row at the top of the canvas.

Now click the Add New Row button at the bottom of the canvas. Notice how the green lines suggest you where the new Row will be created.

See the Result

Great! We have just created 2 new Rows, one at the total top and one at the total bottom.

If you want to create new Rows rather in the middle of the canvas, there are now buttons for it as well (1)

Add Second Column

The buttons on the left and right side of the Canvas are used for adding new Columns.

Notice how the green lines suggest you where the new Column will be created.

(1) Click the Add New Column button

See the Result and Add one more Column

As you can see, the Column has been edit and all the Columns in that row has been automatically re-sized to be balanced and visible. If needed, please simply re-adjust the size of your columns.

(1) Click the Add New Column button again to add one more Column

See the Result

Now we have 3 Columns in our top Row, all perfectly balanced and visible. If needed, please simply re-adjust the size of your columns.

Different ways of re-sizing your Column

There are a few ways how you can change the width of your Column:

1) Click on the input field (says 50% in the screenshot above) and select the desired size or width from the drop down menu

2) Select the "50%" text with your mouse and simply re-write it using your keyboard. You do not have to write % at the end, the system will add it for you. Also if you just write for example "33", the system will help you by changing it to the "33.33%" after you save it. So now press ENTER to save it or TAB to save and jump on to the next Column size.

How to Delete a Module

To delete a Module in Template Builder, simply drag it out of the Canvas. You will then be prompted with the "are you sure" window to avoid any unfortunate situations.

How to Delete a Column

To delete a Column in Template Builder, simply hover your mouse over that Column and you will see a Close button in the upper right corner. Notice how the red border suggests you what exactly will be deleted. If the Column you are trying to delete will have some Modules inside, then you will be prompted with the "are you sure" window to avoid any unfortunate situations.

How to Delete a Row

In order to delete the whole Row, you need to delete all Columns inside that particular Row. Please refer to the "How to Delete a Column" step above and simply delete all the Columns in the Row you wish do delete.

What is what

Here is a rough guide of what is what in case you find yourself confused with the names and labels.

(2) Select a category you would like to edit, in our case it's a category called "Uncategorized"
(3) Change some of the preferences to your liking, just pay close attention to what we change in our screenshots
