Container and Column Element Legacy Settings
Last Update: March 20, 2023
With the introduction of Flex Containers and Columns in Avada 7.0, we have entered a new era when it comes to flexibility of layout and design. Please see Introducing Flexbox for Containers and Columns to get up to date with how Flexbox opens up a new world of layout possibilities.
But it’s a big change, and so we have kept the Legacy settings for Containers and Column Elements on existing sites, so you can have the choice whether you want to use them or not.
Upon update to Avada 7.0, Legacy Support will be enabled for existing sites, and all existing Containers and Columns will remain as they were. Any new Containers, however, will use the new Flex version. So for completed sites, nothing will change, and as such, you would be using the Legacy options when editing containers and columns.
For a full rundown on these elements, please see the Container Element and Column Element docs, but in this document, you can see a rundown of all the Legacy settings that differ from the new Flex settings.
For the Container Element, the differences between Flex and Legacy are found in the General tab. Please see below for the options for this tab on the Container Element.
For the Column Element, the differences between Flex and Legacy are found in both the General and the Design tabs. Please see below for the options for these tabs on the Column Element.
