Content Editing with Kentico - Page Builder

Using the page builder

The page builder is a customizable drag and drop interface that will let you design the content of pages with the use of sections and widgets. 

To access the page builder:

  • Go to the "Pages" application
    • (Second Level Test!)
  • Make sure you are in "Edit" mode (selected in blue above the content tree)
  • Select a page type from the content tree that has a "page" tab (for this site it will primarily be "Content Page" page types)

Section Types:

The "Page Builder" consists of a series of containers and blue or grey boxes with "+" icons in them. The grey + boxes on the left hand side of the viewport allow you to add sections. These sections are pre determined based on the design of the site and contain styling options.


Single column full width: used for full width widgets and sections

Single column narrow width: this is used for job posts

Single column with max width: used most frequently on the site

Two columns full width: not used but good to have. It will have two columns and stretch to the edge of the browser

Two Columns with max Width: two columns with space on the side

Properties of Section Types:

Properties can be adjusted for section types by hovering over the section type and clicking on the gear icon in the dark grey box for the section:

Each section type has a set of properties associated with it. These properties allow you to change the background colour of the section as well as add a title for the section and adjust the spacing properties of the section. You do not need to use these properties in order for the section to work but they are there if you need them. 

If you need to change a section you can also do this without losing your work by clicking on the "template" icon above the properties "gear" icon. 

Once you have set the section type then you can populate the section with widgets by clicking on the blue "+" in the section to get the widget menu. 

Some widgets will work better with certain section types. For the most part widgets will work in all section types, but in the case you want to change the way things look you can adjust the section type by hovering over it and you will notice a dark grey menu at the right hand side of the section. 


Widgets are used to add page content. Some widgets reference "page types" in the content tree. These widgets will pull in this content so you wont have to edit them on the individual page. Other widgets are editable within the widget properties. To view the widget properties click on the gear icon on the right hand side when hovering over the widget. 

Note: if you click the "copy" icon next to the gear icon on the widget it will make a copy of the widget. When you go to the widget menu you will see it copied on the list. This is helpful if you like the styling and content of a widget or what to reuse the widget.
