Website Builder (for WordPress) - How to Add and Manage Sections

This article applies to the Bluehost Website Builder (for WordPress). For information about using the Bluehost Builder (our express website editor not connected to WordPress), please see Bluehost Builder - How to Add and Manage Sections.

If you are not sure which version you are currently using, please see Bluehost Website Builder (for WordPress) vs Bluehost Builder for more information.

In your Bluehost Website Builder, most of your website will be built in sections. For each section, you can add an element and then choose a template to create your content. If you would like to change the look or layout of a section you have already added, you can change to a different template, re-order it, or use design tools to customize your sections at any time further. 

Adding Sections

To begin, you will need to access the Bluehost Builder Editor.
  1. Navigate to the page or post you wish to add a section to.
  2. Click the + icon (Add Section), which appears between the existing section throughout your page. The Sections menu will open, displaying all of the sections you can add.
  3. Choose the section type you want to add, and the builder will display the different layout sections available for that section.
  4. Select the layout you want, and the new section will appear on your page in the split where you selected the + icon (Add Section). Stock images and filler text will be displayed as a placeholder for your own content.

You can also add a section by selecting Sections from the menu on the left to reveal the section and layout options. After you choose a section and a layout, you’ll see the new section on your page.

Editing Sections

To edit a section at any time, click on the section you wish to update. You should see that section/element's design options appear to the right. If you do not see it, you may need to move your mouse to your screen's far right to pop it out. You can also re-order your section on the page or change the template it uses.

Re-ordering Sections

To re-order a section, click the ^ or the v icons to move the section up or down on your page.
