Using Components for rich layout options

Panelizer components can be used in the creation of all the GovCMS content types.
The Components field can be used in the Create/Edit content form of any content type to create and manage rich content layout features, specifically the visual blocks of content on a page.
As you add or edit content, look for the Components field in the form. It is usually at the bottom of the page, as shown in the screenshot below of a new Event page.

Note that the Components field may be labelled differently in your GovCMS website.
This feature can be used to create anything from a simple text block or image to a complex, configurable slideshow.

Components may look different in every website implementation. The ‘vanilla’ GovCMS site used during the training has some preconfigured components available for most content types.
