How do I learn about Flexbox Containers?

Last Update: January 10, 2024

Flexbox containers use the power of flexbox CSS to make building websites faster, while giving you more freedom than ever to create exactly the design you want. Containers also provide improved page loading and greater responsive control.

This is done by giving you the ability to alter each items’ width, height, and order, to best fill the available space of the container. This feature will replace the current section, column, and inner section functionality of the Elementor editor.

Flexbox Containers are currently a release candidate, you may need to activate them if you would like to use them on existing sites.  

You can also set up a sandbox website on your local machine or development server. This will let you learn how to best use containers in your designs without any worry about messing up your current live environment.
