Text column layout

Use this guide to add and edit the text column layout component. This component is useful if you need to arrange a medium length paragraph into 2, 3 or 4 columns.


The component allows: 

  • text arranged in up to four column layout
  • text flows from one column to the next (typical of a magazine article layout)
  • add a link to take people to another location with more details.

Before you start

Navigate to the page where you want to add or edit a column component and you are ready to begin.


The following images show examples of the component in use on the content landing page. The Find out More link is optional and may be customised.

This component can only be used on the content landing page.

We suggest that some thought be given into where you split up your text into paragraphs. This will make sure the columns look better filled or aligned.

Step 1: Add the component

  • Select Text column layout from the Insert New Component list.

Note: This component is only for the content landing page.

Step 2: Edit the component

  • Select the Text column layout component.
  • Select the spanner icon to edit the accordion. This is the Configure button. 

Step 3: Name the component and add content

  • Give your text column layout a heading
  • Include section body text.
  • Include the Link path and Link Text if you need them. The link path can be to either an external link or a page on your site.
  • Select column style, either, either 1,2,3 or 4 columns
  • Select the tick at the top-right corner of the content box to save your changes.
