Content Area & Sidebar

This section helps you to make several adjustments to the built-in content layout of the content area, i.e. the area between the header/title area and footer.

Main Content Area

Here you can adjust the paddings and background of the content area using the "Paddings & Background" setting:

  • Default Settings: inherit content area settings from theme options.
  • Custom Settings: make individual content area settings for this page/post.

For example, if you wish to reduce the gap between the title area and the content of your page/post:


select "Custom Settings"


and use "Top Padding" setting

Of course you can adjust this setting globally for all posts and pages by going to Theme Options → General:

Page Sidebar

Enable or disable post/page sidebar using "Sidebar" setting. Select "Default Setting" to inherit this setting from theme options.

Note: by enabling the page sidebar in TheGem Elementor the default page/post template is automatically changed to "TheGem Boxed":
