Volt CMS Tutorial


Volt Core Bric

The Volt Core Bric has to be placed inside the global footer area in a bloc at the bottom of the page. It will bring the basic configuration and needed files into the project and after export on your server.

Create a new bloc with padding = none and place it at the lowest point in the document tree inside the global footer area. Add the Volt Core bric inside this new bloc, without any other content inside that bloc. Having other content in that bloc might lead to wrongly generated files.
