How to Add Section Layouts on Weebly

Jul 6, 2017 | Weebly Tutorials

In 2016, Weebly released Weebly 4. With this release, Weebly accounts no longer include premade layouts for pages. A new feature that was introduced allows you to use premade layouts for Sections of pages.

How to Add Premade Sections

Sections can be added to new or existing pages. Although most of the premade sections are for business sites, you can modify the text and images for each section type. You can create multiple layouts per page.

Step 1: If you’re starting with a blank page, you can click anywhere on the content area to make the Choose Section Layout window appear. If you are working on an existing page, select the Build tab and then select the Section element. Drag the Section element onto your page.

Step 2: The Choose Section Layout window includes five types of sections: Gallery, Team, Featured, Menu, and Contact. The example below is a menu section. Notice that it automatically fills the full-width of the page content area.


Weebly Section Example


Change Text Formatting

When using sections, the fonts and colors used may not coordinate with your existing template. To quickly change the font styling back to the defaults used by your template, click the Tx button.

Remove Text Formatting

To change the color of the text, click the A button.


Change Background Image to a Background Color

The templates designed by Albemarle PR already have several images. This increases loading time for the site. If you choose to use sections, it is recommended that you delete the background image and use a background color.


Step 1: Click on the Section and then Edit Background.

Step 2: On the window that appears, click the down arrow.
