Using column and column control component

Avatar

Level 4

I am confused on how to use column component and column control component in AEM 6.4 editable templates. I need to create three columns in my website and add content to each column. Can somebody help me to accomplish the same using editable templates and column control/ 3 column component.?

As per the image each time it shows start of columns when I add column component and also I am not able to add data into these column components(As per my thinking, I think we cab add data to the column component).

Can Adobe add a tutorial in creating a sample good looking website using editable template and using only such inbuilt components only?

The column control component is deprecated. 

You should instead use Container component from WCM core components.

You can first drop 3 container in Edit Mode

Then resize the containers in Layout Mode, to create a 3 column view.

You can now add any components to these containers (based on allowed components via policy).
