How To Use Layouts

One of the most powerful features of Elastic is the ability to create layouts.  Layouts control when and when all the elements on your page show.

Why do I want different layouts?

  • You might want a 3 column layout for most of your pages
  • On some pages you want to show large photos, so these pages have a 1 column layout

You can have 1 layout or 1000 layouts as you require.  Layout 1 is called the standard layout.  You should set this layout up as the layout you will use on most of your pages.

Most people find that 1 to 3 layouts is all they need.  They can then control the look of all their pages with these three layouts.
