The Text module is a text box that you can drag and drop into your webpage, and then fill it with your text-based content.
Before we begin: Have you checked out the Focus feature? Focus provides you with a set of 20 functional web page sections designed in the style of your template that you can add with a single click.
Focus saves you time and effort by putting together some of the most common page sections, like Contact Us, About Us, social media buttons, price table, quote box, five styles of content layout and much more. It’s all customizable, so you can tweak it to your liking.
Before you start building areas on your web page, take a look at Focus - the work might have already be done for you!
Here’s how to add a text module to your page, and how to use the text box editing options.
Step 1: Open the target page
In the website builder, open the page of your site that you want to add the text module to.
Step 2: Open the Modules tab
In the left sidebar menu, click on Modules:
Step 3: Locate the text module Icon
In the Modules sidebar, you will see the Text module icon.
Step 4: Click and drag the text module icon onto your page
Point your mouse at the text module, click and drag it onto your page to where you want the new text box to be located. Then drop it.
As you drag it around the page, you will see black lines appear, indicating the edges of the existing elements on the page. Use these lines as guides help you drop your text module in the right place. You can add spacers or other elements later to adjust its position if desired.
For this example, we will add a text box between the title Team, and the photos. There is actually another element already between the Title and photos - a spacer.
Below you can see the text module before it was dropped, hovering over the page. The black line indicates the top edge of the spacer. If the Text module is dropped now, it will insert between the Title “Team” and the spacer.
Step 5: Add your text content
Your new text module is added to your page. Click inside the box to start typing, or paste text from your clipboard.
Tip: To move the text box, including removing it to the trash can, click the thick black grab bar in the center-top and drag it.
For this example, we used copy & paste from a document to add a description of the team:
Step 6: Text formatting options
Once you’ve typed or pasted your text, you might want to add formatting to it. Click inside the text box to open the format options bar:
Here’s a closer look at the format options bar. Chances are you will already be very familiar with these options. If so, please scroll down to our last step: Step 7: Saving the changes.
Highlight your text with your mouse first, then click the formatting option you wish to apply:
Clicking this icon opens the editor box to add or remove a URL link to your text.
Clicking this icon opens the justification options: Left, Center, Right, Total.
To close these options, click on the one you want.
Clicking this icon opens the font size options:
Clicking this icon formats your text as a checklist.
Clicking this icon formats your text as a numbered list.
Clicking this icon opens the color chart. Click any square to change the highlighted text to that color.
Click to undo the last action you performed inside the text box.
Click to redo the last action you “undid” inside the text box.
Step 7: Saving the changes
Once you have finished with your text box, remember to click the Save button at the bottom center of the modules sidebar to save and protect your changes.
Tip: To change the default font for your website’s text boxes, go to the Settings area and click on Design.
