How to Add Multiple Section in Elementor

Looking to add multiple sections in elementor? The Section and Inner Section widget are used to create nested columns within a section. This way you can create complex layouts.

Here, I will show you the easiest way to create Sections in Elementor so let’s get into it.

In Elementor to add your desired elements into the template, you must put them into a wrapper box called Section.

How to add it?

Create a Page and Add a new section to the Page 

To Create a page go to the WordPress dashboard > pages > add new

After the page is created it’s time to add a section to it. To Add the Section Click on the ‘ + ’ Icon.

add new section click on the plus icon

Now select any structure you like according to your need. We are choosing the plain one for now.

After that click on the Edit Section icon in the section which brings up the edit section pane to the left.

To add multiple sections we are going to use the Inner Section Widget from Elementor. Search and select the inner section widget from the menu bar on the left-hand side of your screen then drag and drop it in the selected area.

As a default, you will get a section with two columns. You can add or remove columns by right-clicking the columns handle icon

Note: You can drag and drop the Inner Section widget to any column on your page, but it cannot be used within another Inner Section.

Sections can be manipulated and styled either via the options in the Elementor Panel on the left or by right-clicking the Section handle and choosing from the context menu that pops up. 

Right-Click Options

If you wish to duplicate a section, right-click a section handle and choose Duplicate from the context menu. You can also copy and paste a section elsewhere using Copy and Paste options here, or you can copy and paste only the style (without the content) from one section to another. Click Save as Template to save the section as a template that can be inserted anywhere later. Clicking Navigator here will open the Navigator already set to that particular section. And of course, clicking Delete here will delete the section.

Edit Section

If you click Edit Section, the column’s options will be displayed in the Elementor Panel to the left with all of the following options available to you.


Content Width: Set the Content Width to Boxed or Full Width. When choosing Boxed – use the slider to set your width
