Tell me more about these "modules"? If that's even your real name.
It's not my real name, but it is my middle name. Okay, that's not true either, but all of the following module descriptions are definitely real!
Row Layouts: Row layouts provide you with the basic structure of your page content. You have the option to set up rows ranging from 1 - 6 columns to easily create different layouts on the fly.
Basic Modules: Basic modules are just that, basic element you'd want to add to the page like headings, photos, videos, text, etc.
Advanced Modules: Advanced modules are simple modules that allow you to do more complex things, such as add in a slider, pull posts from your blog, create nicely styled call out sections, etc.
TeamSnap Modules: TeamSnap modules are what display your league info from TeamSnap to your Wordpress public site. Using TeamSnap's API, these modules help you display registration links, division tables, teams, schedules, etc.
WordPress Widgets: These are feature tools or content of specific functionality that can be placed in sidebars on your site. Default widgets include post categories, search bars, tag cloud, etc.
Saved Rows/Modules: Rows or modules that you click the Save As button for when setting up will be saved here so that you can re-use them on multiple pages throughout the site. If you check the Global setting when creating them, then changes made for one will update the rest of the instances of that module wherever it is being used on the site.
What about these other buttons?
Templates: There may be templates in existence that you'd like to apply to the page you are editing. Click the Templates button to view and select any existing templates that you'd like to use.
Tools: Once you've started creating pages and creating the layouts that you like, you might realize it can be helpful to copy one page so you can easily create another. Page templates let you do that. Click Tools then Save Template to save the page you are on as a template that can be re-used throughout the site.
Done: This button is for when you are finished editing and want to either save your progress so you can come back to work on it later, or if you are finished making changes and are ready to publish the changes and make them live.
- Click Publish Changes to make the updated page live
- Click Save Changes and Exit to save changes without publishing the updates to the live page (updates will not be seen publicly until Publish Changes is clicked)
- Click Discard Changes and Exit to throw out your changes and exit Page Builder
