Changing the Page Layout

There are three standard page layouts to choose from. We recommend the Three Column Layout for most regular pages or the Two Column Layout if your site uses constrained layouts (Three Column will not be available in your layouts menu if your site has constrained layouts).

Steps for changing the page layout

You can change a page’s Page Layout after you have logged in and are editing the page (click the Edit icon or click on the Site Actions dropdown menu and select Edit Page).

In the ribbon, click on the Page tab and click the Page Layout dropdown 

Select the layout you want and wait for the page to refresh.

When you are done editing the page, don’t forget to Save & Close and Check In.
