As its name indicates, an info section is a section where you can provide information about your marketplace. An info section can be of different types: one, two, or three columns. This article relates to the sections with two and three columns. In practice, both sections work and can be edited the same way, and the only difference is the number of columns displayed. If you have questions about how to edit the Info - one section, click here.
The Info - two and three columns editor can be divided into the following parts: Section unique ID, Section content, Call-to-action button and, Background.
The ID, call-to-action button, and background are features common to most sections of the landing page. Therefore we created a separate article on how to edit those. You can check it out here. This article explains how to edit the section's content.
The Info section's content - two and three columns can be really, really powerful, informative, and visually stunning. The content is divided into the Main title and the columns (two or three, depending on the type of section).
You can write a title for the section, which will be displayed at the top and centered. The font size will be a little bit larger than the other texts on the landing page.
Depending on the type of section, you will have two or three columns. Each column can have its own icon, title, paragraph, and button.
Each column can be edited independently from each other, and that means that you don't need to add the same features to each column. However, the section will look better if it is consistent.
Each section can have an icon to highlight the point you want to make or simply to make the section look better. By default, the color of the icon matches your marketplace's main color (which can be set from the "Design / Logos & Color" tab of your Admin panel), but if you add a background image or background color to the section, the icon will be displayed white.
Adding the icon requires some manual operation from the Sharetribe team. Here is how to share with us the icon you would like to use:
- Visit this web viewer.
- Look for the icon you'd like to use in the "Streamline Light" section. Browse by categories or search by using keywords.
- When you find the icon, you'd like to use, click on it to load its details in the sidebar.
- From the sidebar, copy the icon name from the top of the sidebar. In addition to this, you can also open the image in a new tab and copy its URL.
- Contact the Sharetribe Team via the chat widget in your Admin panel or this article, or email us at email@example.com. In the message, please let us know the icon name /and the image's URL).
- We'll get the unique path for that icon ready for you, and we'll share it with you!
Each column can have its own independent title. This can be a single word or a phrase.
Each column can have a paragraph section that allows you to add one or multiple paragraphs to the column.
Markdown is partially supported and, because of this, some symbols and numbers might display differently than expected if added at the beginning of a paragraph. You might need to add their html code instead of the symbol itself.

Each section can have its own Call-to-action button, independent from the section's main CTA button. In practice, you can use this button to add a button that relates to what is being mentioned in the column and encourage visitors to perform an action, like "sign up", "browse listings," or "post a new listing".
