After mastering the basic structure of a Block, the next step is to add content to your Block within the columns you have laid out. The following guide will walk you through adding content that uses the responsive breakpoints set up within the Boldgrid Theme Framework. We will be using the following example Block that will show 4 full width columns on your phone, 2 rows with 2 columns in each on your tablet, and 1 row with 4 columns on your desktop.
