Using a template - How do I add/remove individual sections?

Hi guys,


I am using one of the pre-canned Confluence templates, but I do not understand how I can add or remove individual blocks. For example, in the screenshot attached, there is a grid of 4x blocks: "Subscriptions", "Billing_Accounts", "Billing_invoices", "Payment_Failure". 


So how would I create a new 5th block and remove existing?

Thanks for the reply!


So am I right in thinking the maximum number of boxes could only ever be 6?

Actually, you could add additional 3 column layout sections underneath for 9 boxes, 12 boxes, etc

It looks like in your screenshot you've clicked in the info panel (where 'Subscriptions' is typed). If you click in one of the blank areas of a box, you'll see the template is two 2-column layouts. You should then see the different layout options - different number of columns and sidebars available to choose from:

To create a fifth block, you'll want to use the 3 column layout. Below I've made the bottom layout into a 3-column and added a 5th Info Panel (if you click on the + in the top ribbon you'll see the Info Panel option)

FYI - If you delete a layout both boxes will be removed.


Hope this helped!
