Text Blocks

Text blocks are the basic way to display content in a page’s main content section. To add a text block, click the + button in a column and select Text Block from the popup window.

To edit existing text blocks, hover over the block and click the edit button from the context menu.

The text block allows you to add and edit text with a full-featured WYSIWYG editor – no code needed. (If necessary, you can edit the HTML directly by clicking Tools > Source Code.) You can use the Add Media button to insert images from the Media Gallery as well. Use caution when pasting text from another program such as Word or Google Docs, as these may contain unseen formatting code that affects the content on the page.

The text block also contains two settings on the General tab that you should not need (CSS Animation and Extra class name) and a variety of settings in the Design Options tab which should not be needed when using your custom theme.

In addition to editing the contents, the context menu allows you to move the text block to a different location in the layout, copy the text block and its contents, or delete the block.

Once you are finished making changes, click Publish or Update on the right side of the page to make your changes live.
