Create a 1-column sectionClick to copy

Step 1: Build the layout

First, select Add Element from the left sidebar menu > Layout. Pick the 1/1 section layout and drag it onto the page.

  • Choose Styling tab > Background > Insert the image background for the section.

To make the section a banner, you can adjust the Padding and Margin in the SPACING parameter and adjust Background Position or Background Size or anything related to the Background Image in More Settings.

With this example, the section is set for the Padding at the top: 200px and bottom: 200px. The Background Position is Center; Background Size is Cover.


Go to Add Element > Heading and drag one of the variations into the section. Stylize it as you want. And repeat with the Button element. Then choose the column> Styling tab > change the Margin left to 150Px

Et voila! This is the design on the live view of a 1-column section with a heading and a button.


Important: When a fixed value is set in the “All” view, it will be applied to all other views (tablet and mobile) and makes the design not responsive by default anymore. Scroll down to learn how to fix this.

Step 2: Optimize the mobile design

You can check the design on mobile by choosing Mobile in Device switcher on the top bar.

The image doesn’t look good on mobile.

PageFly allows you to customize the styling for individual devices, so choose the column> Styling tab > change the Margin left to 0Px, then click Section > Styling tab > SPACING > Set 30px to the top-padding and bottom-padding.

Edit heading and button’s size to make them fit with the image.


Hit Publish and check the page on Live View.
