Section

Available since 1.0.0

The section is a page-level structure container used to divide a page into stacked sections with appropriate padding applied. These should be used to separate large groups of content on a page.

You will generally use a section inside a page container which will give you the appropriate side margins. Since a section is full-width by default it can be used as a well with background colors or images.

Can hold two child types:

  • .fd-panel (optionally with .fd-panel-grid) is the most common use.
  • .fd-container and fd-col--[num] can be used to organize panels or content when a grid layout is not desired.


Section structure

Shows an example of a background color applied with a helper class.

.fd-section
.fd-section
.fd-section
<section class="fd-section">
    .fd-section
</section>
<section class="fd-section fd-has-background-color-accent-4 fd-has-color-action-2">
    .fd-section
</section>
<section class="fd-section">
    .fd-section
</section>

Section with panel grid

Shows an example with the grid span helper class. This is most appropriate when displaying a collection of content in a linear order.

<section class="fd-section">
    <div class="fd-panel-grid">

            .fd-panel
        </div>
        <div class="fd-panel">
            .fd-panel
        </div>
        <div class="fd-panel">
            .fd-panel
        </div>
        <div class="fd-panel">
            .fd-panel
        </div>
        <div class="fd-panel">
            .fd-panel
        </div>
    </div>
</section>
