Let us start with building a page.




The Unyson Page builder is a powerful tool for building pages. There are 3 tabs for different elements for your page: Layout, Content and Media.





Select your desired number of columns for each part of your page and add as many elements as you want. You can also add a whole section and add columns inside the sections.





The Content tab contains elements like Accordion, Button, Icon Box, etc. These elements help you design a beautiful, responsive page with your desired functionality.





You can also add media like images and videos from the media elements tab.





Templates are a useful way to save your page and use it like a template for further pages.




Navigate to the Unyson tab in the sidebar to access its settings.
