Fred Elements are the basic building blocks used by end-users to create content. They can be as simple as a single headline or paragraph, or more complex like a hero intro with configurable background images, text padding, opacity settings and more.


Elements can be organized to aid content creators in finding different types of content using Categories. For example, a Theme might contain the following Element Categories:

  • Page Intros
  • Feature Sections
  • Quotes
  • Code Blocks
  • Galleries
