A panel is simply a box with a colored title and footer.

How to Add Panels

  1. First, make sure the Toolbar Toggle button is selected. The Toolbar Toggle button shows and hides a collection of buttons in the editor.

  2. Select Panels from the EBS dropdown menu under Interactive.
    Where to find the Panels button in the editor
  3. The Style drop-down options allow you to choose the color of the panel. Each color option has a name assigned to it as follows:panel-default (also called simple) = light gray
    • panel-primary = darker blue
    • panel-success = green
    • panel-info = light blue
    • panel-warning = yellow
    • panel-danger = red
  4. Check the Show Footer option if you want a colored footer added to the panel

Note: The panel will be the full width of the content area by default, but you can use the panel shortcode in conjunction with Columns to lay out content side by side.
