Quick page navigation

The view slot is the content builder. Here you decide what parts of the post, page, attachment or any other content type you want to show.

It has two sections.
The container where you find many so called bricks representing all the common parts of your post or page. Such as post title, content, featured image, custom meta and others.

The second area of the view is slot.
Any view bricks dropped in to slot will be shown to the front end user. Each brick has its own particular settings. All the post parts will be show in the exact order as you saved them in the widget.

Each brick has it’s own extra field for CSS where you can add your own class or id. Each brick output will be wrapped in either it’s own div or ul or any other corresponding container enhanced by your own class (The whole widget has its own class structure as well. See general.).
