Version 5: Text Block Module

Learn about the text block module available for version 5 templates.

The text block module features a headline and WYSIWYG for entering varying amounts of text. This module is useful for creating a visual break to highlight particular content or when changing subjects within a page.

Module: text-block

Create a new text block module

  1. From the New Content menu, click Features->Modules->Text Block. The module will be placed in the _modules folder by default. You can create multiple sub-folders within _modules as needed (similar to images and files). To create multiple instances of this module, copy the module and rename it. Edit each module separately.
  2. Click Edit to bring up the edit screen.

  4. Save & Preview, Submit as normal.

    To place the new module on a page, add it as one of the middle blocks.
