One of the fastest ways to make your project responsive from the start is to use Builder's Columns block. All of the responsive groundwork is already in place in the Columns block so that it adapts to any screen size by default. And you can use columns to showcase any UI, or User Interface, element.

The following is an example of the built-in Columns block with the minimal addition of a third column, some images, and copy. When the view changes from Laptop to Tablet and then to Phone, the contents of the columns adapt, preserving a positive user experience.

The following example is a Columns block with only two columns. Instead of two pictures, one column is text and the other is an image. The copy reflows and maintains readability at the different screen widths.

The principle is the same as the previous example, in that the edits to the built-in Columns block are only to style the look. You don't need to do anything to make the Columns block responsive.

The edits to the built-in Columns block include adding and styling copy, adding a background color to the Columns block, deleting the placeholder image block in the first column, and setting the width to full page width.

The Columns block is responsive by default, so you can focus entirely on content and Builder takes care of the responsiveness.

To add Columns, drag and drop a Columns block from the Insert tab onto the page.

To change the number of columns:

  1. Select the Columns element by clicking on it. Be careful not to select the image or text inside the columns.
  2. Click the Edit button.
  3. Click the +Column button to add another column.

To check that your columns display the way you intend, view them at different screen sizes by clicking on the tablet and phone icons as in the following example.

To make more edits to columns:

  1. Select the Columns element.
  2. Click the Edit button.
  3. In the Edit dialogue, click Show Advanced.

In the Advanced section, you can do the following:

  • Adjust space between columns.
  • Set the size screen at which items stack.
  • Specify whether you want to reverse the order of the images and text when stacking.
  • Determine the screen size for stacking columns.

If you want the columns to be different sizes, you can drag left or right on the blue line between the columns as in the following video.

By using multiple Columns blocks, you can create entire pages. You can vary the contents of each Column to contain elements such as pictures, copy, or forms and you can vary the number of individual columns within each block. You can also use Columns within Sections for even more variety.
