When creating pages with Nayla, you utilize the Elementor Page Builder. In addition to what Elementor offers during page creation, you can make your websites unique and more creative using Nayla's special page builder elements.

When building pages with Elementor & Nayla, you'll see some special options/widgets that offered by Nayla. Let's take a look at these special features you will be able to use.

1. Sections

The first step in creating a page is to add sections to the page. After adding the sections, you will see some new section settings that come with Nayla in the respective section's settings panel.

With these settings, you gain more control over the sections, allowing you to enhance the appearance of your page, making it more beautiful.

2. Columns

Just like in sections, Nayla offers specific settings within Elementor Columns. You can find these settings under the 'Layout' tab in the column settings panel.

Let's take a closer look at these settings:

1 - Column Animation: It includes special column animations that come with Nayla. With these animations, you can choose the animation that will play when the column enters the viewport.

2- Parallax Animation: Here, you can determine the parallax behavior the column will display while scrolling the page. You can set the direction, strength, and start and end positions of the behavior.

3 - Pinned Column: If you change this setting to "yes," it means the column will be pinned to another page element while scrolling. The column will stay fixed on the page as long as the pinned element is in the viewport.
When you change the setting to "yes," the panel will ask you to enter a pin target (ID is recommended). Once you input the target pin, everything is set for this column to be pinned to the target!

You can set CSS ID's and classes to a section from it's "Advanced" tab on the settings panel.


4 - Hide on Sticky: This setting does not affect anything in inner page columns. It only determines whether the columns in header sections will be visible when the header becomes sticky or fixed."

3. Widgets

In addition to Elementor's default widgets, Nayla offers a wide range of new page builder widgets. These widgets are categorized into four distinct categories.

Let's take a closer look at these categorıes:

1 - Content Widgets

Content widgets are designed to be used within the page content. Each of them has been specially crafted for Nayla and integrated into Elementor. With these widgets, you can create animations, define cursor interactions, and much more.

Showcase widgets are designed to easily add any showcase design you desire to your pages. Simply drag and drop the showcase you want onto your page. You can adjust all the settings you desire from the widget settings panel without needing to make any adjustments outside of the editor.

3 - Header Widgets

The specially crafted widgets designed for creating headers significantly streamline your work when designing headers. You can easily add your logos, menus, and other elements to your header at the size you desire and position them wherever you like.
PS: When customizing your headers, you can also utilize other page elements such as buttons, texts, and more.

4 - Project Header Widgets

TThe widgets you can freely use to create project headers with Elementor can be found under this tab. Just like in headers, you can also use other page builder elements when creating project headers. However, it is recommended to use these widgets for dynamic content in projects, such as metadata, titles, categories, etc.

05. Building Portfolios

Just like creating inner pages, you can design project pages to your liking using Elementor. Before starting to create the project page content with Elementor, there are specific settings tailored for project pages. Let's take a look at these together.
