Container Element

Container Elements can hold one or more Elements, positioned vertically or horizontally, to provide sophisticated control over layout and rendering. Because they enable extremely flexible positioning, Container Elements can function like HTML <div> tags, but with the following additional advantages:

For these reasons, and because you can also "schedule" containers to filter by time, by group or by subsite, PaperThin recommends using Containers instead of Tabular Elements or Scheduled Elements for page layouts. Containers provide all the functionality of Scheduled Elements with the added benefits of flexible positioning and compatibility with the HTML5 outlining algorithm.

Insert the Container Element from the Layout Elements section of the Element Gallery.
