To activate this section you first have to add the section to your page. This can be done in a few small steps.

1) Click on 'add section' which can be found in your left sidebar

2) Scroll down, or search for 'Multicolumn', then click on Multicolumn

3) Done, your 'Multicolumn' section is added.

Simply click on the 'section' to open the settings.

On the right sidebar, the following settings will show

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.

How to configure the multicolumn and change the columns?

By default, there are 4 blocks added, you can edit them, remove them or add more blocks.

1. Editing the blocks
To edit the blocks you simply click on the block you want to edit in your sidebar on the left of your screen.

After you clicked the block, on the right of your screen the following sidebar will open.

First off, you can choose an 'Icon' that will fit with your USP/text. Don't want to use a preconfigured icon? You can always upload a 'Custom image'.

The recommended size of this custom image would be 110x110px. Make sure to use a .png file to get a transparant background!

You can upload a custom image for dark mode as well. So everything looks great when you're in the dark mode.

Image height:
Using a custom image? Set the height for the image here!


Simply put in the title of your block, for this example we're going to use: 'Ordered before 4PM? Shipped today!'

In Next theme you have an option to have 2 headings per column as well.

In the text field you can fill in more text to reinforce the USP. For this example we're going to use: 'Fast and reliably shipping, order now!'

Button label:
Set the text for the button

Set the link for the column

Button color scheme:
If a label is set, which color scheme do you want to give it?

Show link instead of button:
Check this if you want to use a normal textlink instead of a button.

2. How to remove a block?
Don't want to use 4 blocks? But you want to use 3? You can always remove the blocks one by one to fit in your needs.

To remove the blocks you simply click on the block you want to remove in your sidebar on the left of your screen.

After you clicked the block, on the right of your screen the sidebar will open.
On the bottom left of this sidebar, the following button 'Remove block' shows.

Simply click on this button and your block will be deleted.
