- Edit and add modules to build the page
- Go to the upper left menu and click on "Responsive Editing" to see what the page looks like on tablet and mobile.
- Make any adjustment needed to widths, heights, font-sizes, etc. making sure that what you're editing has the tablet or mobile icon next to it (this ensures that what you're editing won't effect the desktop view)
- Click the done button and either save as a draft or publish

- Scroll down to Background and you will see where the background of the row is set to an image

Edit an existing template:
- Go to the template tab

- Use the builder to edit the template, then save
Editing a template DOES NOT update all the pages where that template was used as a starting point.
- These have all been saved as Globally saved rows. Go to the Saved tab and you will see all the rows needed.
- Hover over them and click the wrench to edit
- It will open in a new tab where you can use the builder tools to edit the row
- Save and the changes will be made across the site where the global row is used.
- If you're editing a row with dynamic content, the system may place placeholder/example text as a sample, or it may appear blank.
