    Hi folks!
    I would love to make a page, that look like this:

    I don’t know there to start, but it’s about making sektions with different background colors and a picture in one side and tekst in another. It doesn’t need to look excactly the way in the picture, but similar to that.

    There do I start?

    Hi there,

    you can create those layouts using the GenerateBlocks plugin:

    https://generateblocks.com

    If those sections are to be full width then you can set the Page Builder Container to Full Width:

    That makes sense, thanks. I just think I may have messed some things up.
    If I in the Customizer > Layout > Sidebars has set to (content, no sidebars), I believe that, when I make a new page, it should not be with a left sidebar in it. And I should not have to change that on my page in the Page Builder Container, when I create pages with the GenerateBlocks plugin

    The NewPage making a left sidebar happend after I had tried a websitetemplate from the libary. It also removed my footer on every pages exept the frontpage. I have made quite a lot of canges since I shifted back to the settings witout a websitetemplate.

    I don’t like to make new pages, with the GenerateBlocks plugin before I am sure, everything works correctly. Thanks.

    Go to Appearance > Elements – look for any Layout Elements. Their may be one that is changing sidebars and footers

    Well, that was weird, but it worked. I thougt, that the elements, only works on the pages, that I had chosen in the locationtab! Do I need to exclude all other pages?

    About using the GenerateBlocks plugin: Would it be wise, on all my pages, always to start by creating a container, and put my content in that?

    And just a little extra question: How do I get my picture in my profile on this page. Like you guys have?

    Elements should only apply to the locations you set in the Display Rules tab.
    What are the display rules you’re using ?

    For Pages – i would only add a Containers if i needed to break the pages into sections or if i were using a Full Width Page. If all of your pages are going to look like your example then you may want to look at the Duplicate Posts plugin – then you can simply make a new draft of your first page and edit 🙂

    I found the bug in the elements section. Somehow “all pages” were added to the locationtab, and that explains it all. Now it works as I supposed it would 🙂

    I use duplicate/clone page a lot, but thanks for the advise.
