The general section contain the settings for layout and spacing. To open the general settings click on the section:
Set the ratio of the images, so you can customize the look of the images. Set it to 75% for landscape, 100% for square and 125% for portrait.
Show images in circle:
When the image ratio is set to 100% and this option is checked, the images will show in a circle instead of square, landscape or portrait.
Images per row:
Set the amount of images you want per row. If there are more images selected than can be on screen, the section will add a slider option to slide between the images.
Space between banners:
Set the space between the images. How larger the space, the less images can be on screen.
Set the position of the heading text within the section.
The social media bar has these headings: Primary and secondary in each setting you will see options to fill your desired headings and customize the font size for headings and choose the right font that works for you.
Fill in the text of the section, this will be under the title.
This text will show on the button, for example: 'View all'
Enter a link for the button, for example to your products sale page.
Button color scheme:
Set the colorscheme of the buttons within the section.
Show link instead of button:
Check this box if you don't want a button to show, but only a clickable text.
Set the position of the description, this can be left or center.
Set the fontsize of the description.
Custom text styling
Enable custom text styling:
Custom text styling allows you to overwrite the standard typography settings. This way you can customize al your banners in a great and unique way! Enable the option and let your creativity go!
Bottom spacing desktop/mobile: That way you will get the amount of whitespace below the element you want. The default for desktop is 50px and the default for mobile is 30px.
Control the stacking order of sections:
Increase or decrease the z-index value to control the visual layering of sections, ensuring the desired display arrangement when using negative spacing.
When we increase the z-index, the section will overlap:
