Adding panel image

You can use this panel to add to the page:

  1. Primitives โ€” basic components.
  2. Project components โ€” those you created yourself on the page or with code.
  3. Catalog components โ€” a set of ready-made components for different purposes, such as Facebook like, video, or carousel.
  4. Blocks โ€” ready-made themed blocks for different tasks.

You can drag elements from the panel to the desired place on the page or just click on the desired component โ€” in this case, it will be added to the bottom of the page.

Blocks and components from the catalog can be added from the modal window by clicking on the necessary block or by double-clicking on a component.
