Making Colorful Animated Columns

There are other different options you can use to make your columns colorful, you can use them for: text color, icon color, or button color. Experiment with colors, and let your site content shine brightly!
Styling Animated Columns content
If you added much description to the animated column item, I suppose you don’t want to show all this content in the column as it will be very long. In this case, it’s better to create a new page with full text content and add a button to the animated column item with the link to this page.
But, how do you hide the description and show just the icon, title and button? It’s easy. Edit the Animated Columns element settings in Visual Composer. Find the option “Column Content & Style”, then select “Simple” setting.
Setting Custom Height for Animated Columns
Sometimes, you may find that animated columns are too high for your page content and you’d like to reduce it. There’s a trick to achieve this. You need to use css code and add it to Jupiter > Theme Options > Advanced > Custom CSS, just like this:
height: 450px !important;
padding-top: 100px !important;
You can modify the values to the size that suits your design best.
Using animated columns will give your site better visibility of the content. You’ll attract your visitors to main blocks with modern design. They will definitely pay attention to such bright columns and the info you want to share won’t be missed.
