We will now discuss each of these options one by one:

  • Columns: This field, as suggests, represents the number of columns in a row. Each column contains one Doc Category. So, the number of columns is equal to the number of Doc Categories in a row.
    As we can see in the above screenshot, we have added 3 columns, so, 3 Doc Categories in a row.
  • Spacing: As the name suggests, we can use the Spacing field to adjust the spacing between the columns. In our example here, we have set the spacing as 20px.
  • Category Background Color: We can use this option to set a Background color for the Doc Categories.
  • Category Title HTML Tag: Using the Category Title HTML Tag option, we can set the Heading Tag for the Category Title. As visible in the below screenshot, we have set the HTML Tag as “H2”.

  • Category Description Color: As the title suggests, we can use this option to set the color of Category Description. Here, in the above screenshot, we have set the Category Description Color as Black.
  • Category Action Font Size: The Category Action tab is just below the Category Description. In the above screenshot, we can see that the Category Action tab contains the Number of Articles (Docs) in a particular category and a “View All” button to view all the articles of that particular category.
    Here, in our example, we have set the Category Action Font Size to 20px.
  • Category Action Text Color: As the name suggests, the Category Action Text Color sets the color for texts in the Category Action tab, i.e, text color of “Number of Articles” and “View All”. Here, in our example, we have set the Text Color as White.
  • Category Action Background Color: The Category Action Background Color sets the Background Color for the Category Tab. As visible in the screenshot, we have set this to “Brown”.
  • Separator Color: There is a horizontal separator between the Category section and the Category Action tab section. Using this field, you can set any color for the Separator. For our example here, we have set the Separator Color as “White”.
