How to choose a module layout

Modules are grouped into two categories: Rotators and grids.

Rotators scroll horizontally to show many items in a single row. They’re best for fitting a lot of content into a small vertical space. Grids show items in a grid pattern. They’re best for making sure items are always visible on the page.

Follow these suggestions to select a specific module based on your content:

To highlight featured content…

To list sessions…

To list exhibitors, courses, or on-demand content…

To list speakers…

For example, higher-level exhibitors appear larger in a grid with two columns, while lower-level exhibitors appear smaller in a grid with 3 columns. We don’t recommend using this module for sessions because it doesn’t include the session status (like Live or Past) or type (like Main stage or Panel).
