The “Email Signup Example 1” layout has 2 components.
The first component is the layout that contains the building blocks of the page.
The second component is assigning the layout to a page we’ve created.
We’ll walk through both steps below.
- In the WordPress Dashboard, select My Theme > Layouts and Views.
- Create a new layout, and name it “Email Signup” or a name of your choosing.
- Choose a width. To decide on a width, you would most likely base it off of the width of the rest of your site. Of course, you can choose any width with Builder.
Below the settings section, you’ll find the Design options. This is where you’ll start to add modules to create a new layout.
Here’s a screenshot of the “Email Signup Example 1” Layout we’ve created:
Steps to reproduce this layout:
- Add a module, selecting “Image”. Upload an image you’ve created to depict your product or advertise your email signup form.
- Add a “Content” module below the image module, with no sidebar. You’ll use this module to create your email signup form.
- That’s it for the layout portion. Now, let’s talk about the assigning the layout to a page.
Assigning the Layout
In the WordPress Dashboard, select Pages > Add New.
Name your Page, and add your content. We’ve added simple information along with a very simple Gravity Forms signup section.
Depending on your settings, you should see a block on your page’s edit screen labeled “Custom Builder Layout”. Choose the layout you’ve created for this page by selecting it in the drop-down list.
Publish or Update your page, and you’re done! (Be sure to add a link to the page so visitors can find it!
