Possible to create a section that holds other sections?

Recommended Posts


In other words, can I create a section that behaves similarly to a canvas area? Most importantly can you drag and drop other sections, such as columns and text boxes onto it?


This would make my life a whole lot easier, and open up an amazing amount of flexibility for plugin builders. Especially a plugin like DepthCharge. It's almost entirely useless without the ability to drag your own content on top of the parallax sections.


Looking through the documentation, it appears that you can make a section full width. But I don't see anything about allows section embedding.


Is this possible at the moment, and if not, is this perhaps an upcoming feature?

You can add new canvas areas, as many as you like in fact, is that what you mean?

Boy do I feel stupid. I just realized that the canvas area is just another section. I was able to copy the pl_area section out of the parent them into my child theme, and I can edit it to my heart's content. 


This is a game changer! I only wish I had realized it months ago. It would have drastically changed my approach to developing addons for DMS.

      I need some help!  I am trying to add a Square booking script.  When I add it to a embed section it crashes the page editor and I am unable to save the page version.  I have tried using different browsers with the same result.
       I can add the script on the backend in the word press content area and get it to show and work, but it look terrible.  A page with in a page.  http://www.zoeanastacia.com/booking/.
      I need help getting the page editor to work properly or to make the wp content section to not look like an 90's iframe.

      I tried to make a simple change on my opt-in page today by reordering two sections.
      Now they won't save and whatever I do, the same 2 section will be stuck to the top.
      This is a huge problem since it is my opt-in page!
      (I'm on the latest WP & PL version)

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.
