What is a Slot and how can I use it to design my landing page?

Moosend's Landing Page Designer is jam-packed with options, making designing a beautiful landing page a breeze! 

Once you have taken the basic steps towards creating your landing page, you will need to select a Structure for your landing page, by adding Containers to it. The type of Container(s) you select will determine how many Slots you have to work with. For example, a Half-Width Container consists of two slots, a 3 x 1/3 Container consists of three slots, and so on.

Below you can see the 3 x 1/3 Container.

Each Slot has its own separate Settings. Here's how to access Slot Settings:

1. Click on the Settings icon which appears to the right of your Structure when you hover over it. The Structure Settings instantly appear on the left side of your Designer page.

2. Scroll down to the Slot menus.

There will be as many Slot menus as there are Slots in your chosen Container.

3. Click on the plus sign to expand the menu of whichever Slot you wish to work on.
