Oidom currently has nearly 30 different section types to choose from. Among these, you will find own sections for different content needs. In addition to traditional text sections, we have designed section templates for, among other things, a contact form, an image gallery and a timeline. Alternative designs are also available for almost every section.
Below you will find a list of available sections and how to use them. We are adding new section types in almost every major Oidom update.
Start adding a section by clicking the blue plus button between already added sections. After that you can select the section you want to add.
From the left sidebar you will find all the sections you can add. The filters at the top of the sidebar allow you to search the suitable section with tag or keyword. When you find the appropriate section, click it to proceed.
Different layout templates, aka designs, are available for almost all sections. You can change the design from the left sidebar and you'll see a preview of the selected one on the right. When you are happy with what you see, you can add a section by clicking the button.
Story and Long Story sections are perfect for text-based content. Difference between these two story sections are that on Long Story you are able to add more elements where Story has only one image and paragraph element on it.
With Hours section you can add for example your visiting hours or other similar content.
