Text Block

The Text Block Page Element will be the most used Page Element in the UW Theme for most sites.  It provides a simple word processor with minimal features that will allow you to add most written content to your site.  In addition to written text, Text Blocks allow you to embed third-party applications with embed code that you can use in your site.  Our KnowledgeBase offers instructions on adding Text Blocks to your site.

Options available in Text Blocks include:

Bold text  Italicized Text  Strikethrough  Adding a link

  • Unordered lists
  • Test
  1. Ordered lists
  2. Test

Blockquotes

Horizontal lines


Left-aligned text

Center-aligned text

Right-aligned text

You can embed third-party content provided they provide embed code.  Below, you will see a YouTube video embedded in a Text Block.  We offer the Embed Content Page Element for YouTube videos, but you might choose to embed a video in a Text Block if you want to manipulate the size of the video or where it displays on your page.

Embedding Content will also allow you to embed other content that is not supported in the UW Theme, such as a Twitter account.

Every Text Block offers an option to “Apply UW Box Style.” Checking that box will add a light background to your text area and make it look like a more defined block of content. This is a great alternative to the Featured Content Block.
