Grid container FAQs

Last Update: August 17, 2023


I tried to add a widget to a cell but it put it in a different cell.

Can I create a Grid Container with a blank cell?

For some designs you may want to have one blank cell within a grid. In theory, you must have an element in a cell before you can add an element to the next cell. However, there is a workaround. You can add a contentless widget (the Spacer widget is recommended) to a cell and then add an element to the next cell. This will appear as a blank space in your grid.

Can I create more advanced layouts with uneven grid layouts?

You can achieve that by heading to the Columns and Rows unit size selector and changing it from FR to Custom (pencil icon). Then, in the custom field, you can use CSS Grid properties to create more complex layouts.

Can I use Flexbox and Grid simultaneously for my page layout?

Sure, you can enjoy both worlds and use each layout’s features and flexibility to create unique and complex structures.

The Grid Outlines disappear when not focused on the container widget or live preview. Why?

The Grid Outlines are only for editing purposes to help you visualize the grid layout better, when you’re focused on a different element on the page, we don’t want to overload the Editor with unnecessary guides. We also don’t want to show the outline in the preview or live page.
