Gridder Elements

Gridder Elements are the content that you put into your layout.

Besides easy-to-understand elements like "Image" or "Text" there are a few elements that are not so obvious like "Stack" or "Text Footer" that you can read about here.

Text on an Image

1. Right-click on a row and choose "Use Browser Height for Row Height"
2. Place an image and place a text on top of it

Space around Elements

Right-click on an element and set "Space above" and "Space below".

Space around

Set the "Space above" and "Space below" values in the context menu.

In "Lay Options" → "Gridder Defaults" you can set "Spaces" to be in pixels rather than in %.

Offsets for Elements

Right-click on an element and set "X-Offset" and "Y-Offset".

You can enter positive or negative numbers to offset the element. This way an image can reach into another row for example. In the mobile view the offsets are disabled.

Elements to the right will always overlap columns to the left. Elements of a row will always overlap elements of a previous row.

In "Lay Options" → "Gridder Defaults" you can set Offsets to be in pixels rather than in %.

Full Width Element

Simply resize an element to the edges of your layout.

Element Grid

Use the "Element Grid" to add many images to your layout at once, without having to place them one by one.
Also it makes it easier to reorder images.

Social Media Icons

Icons need to have a pixel width. So better use this element when you want to use icons on your website.

In the Gridder click "+More" and "+Social Media Icons".

A "Text Footer" element is great for setting the space between links for a common footer.

In the Gridder click "+More" and "+Text Footer".
Use this Element in combination with the "Footer" feature in "Lay Options" → "Footers".

Footer

The "Footer Element" is great in combination with "Footers" in "Lay Options"

Embedding Instagram, SoundClound, etc.

In the Gridder click "+More" → "+Embed". Here you can paste the URL of an Instagram image, a URL of a SoundCloud song and more. Here is a list of all websites that embed should work for.

If the website you want to embed is not in this list, you can still add an <iframe> embed code provided by that website. In the Gridder click "+More" → "+HTML" and add your <iframe> embed code here.
