A Container or multiple container blocks can be added inside a section.

Some content such as backgrounds and images can break out of the container width but most content will be inside.

The inner container defines the website content width and is centered on the page.

A .cc-cntr class is added by default and applies a maximum width of 1366px.

By default, when adding a Cwicly Section a container block is automatically inserted inside.

Additional Container blocks can be added inside the Section and the original container can be removed if required.


A container can be added to a container by using the Quick Inserter or the Block Inserter.

  • Click the Container icon in the Quick Inserter to add a Container block to your page.

  • Alternately, search for the Container block in the Block Inserter and click to add inside your section.
