Content Areas create the core structure and layout of your website's content. You can drag-and-drop Elements into Content Areas to add content, such as Text and Images.
In This Article:
Standard Content Areas
A standard Content Area is indicated by a notebook icon. These areas are unique to the page you are on and will not appear on other pages.
Global Content Areas
A Global Area is indicated by a bullseye icon. Content added to these areas will appear on every page the Content Area exists on. For example, Content Areas in the Header and Footer section are often Global Areas
Some Content Areas are wrapped around a larger Region and typically have the name Section in them. If you set a background color or image to a Region, it will appear behind all Content Areas within that Region.
For example, Section1 in the image below is a Region containing the following Content Areas: PageHeader, ContentLeft, ContentRight, and ContentMid. The background image set in Section1 spans behind all these Content Areas.
