More Info - Tabbed Sections
Each Section can be edited by clicking the “edit section” link, or by going to: Content > Sections and selecting the Section Title.
These Sections are WYSIWYG editors. This means you can add text, images, videos, or CTA buttons that link to pages, PDF’s, or other sites. We recommend adding content that will answer important questions for New Visitors (ie. What to Expect, Children’s information, or Parking Information). Each tab can provide surface level information and utilize a CTA button to link to more info if needed.
Now that you’ve finished adding the content, you can place it in the navigation so people can easily find the layout.
More info on the navigation can be found on our Help Site: http://help.ekklesia360.com/article/adding-a-navigation-item/
