If you're creating navigation links for you're page the "Multi-Column Layout" is a custom element that can help you structure your web page. This custom element lets you create column containers for your element--this lets you put elements next to each other rather than on top of one another. An example can be seen on the ITCS home page: Example
To insert the "Multi-Column Layout" element follow these three (3) steps:
Step 1: Insert the custom element on your page where you want it to be displayed by clicking on this icon.
Step 2: Now click on the gear icon to define the number of columns you would like.
Step 3: Now click on the "Advanced Settings" tab and select your preferred width of the columns. If you do not specify a width they will be equally spit and displayed on your page. If you are putting navigation links in your first column you may consider a width of 200px. Separate your width in pixels with a common. Example: "200px, 960px" (total 960) would give you two columns the one on the let narrower than the one on the right (Like our home page http://www.ecu.edu/itcs/)
And that's it! You're containers will now look something like this:
