Text widget

To get started, click the Add Content button.

Next, add a Text Widget from the Widget menu.

You can now type into the text area. To create a new paragraph press enter. Alternatively press shift-enter to start a new line within the same paragraph.

If you are copying text from another website or document we recommend first pasting the text into Notepad to strip out any formatting then copy and paste from Notepad into the text area.

To link text, first highlight the text you want to link, then click the Link button. Paste your link in the URL area of the pop-up box.

To make the link open in a new window, click on Target, and select New Window (_blank).

You can also create a Click Here link by simply copying a link, clicking in the text area, and pressing Ctrl-V (Cmd-V on macOS).

There are many text formatting options available, including changing fonts, size, position, and colour.


You can easily add a table to your text area by clicking on Table and setting the appropriate number of rows and columns. 


Once you click OK, this inserts a table into your text area.


The columns in the table will resize to fit your text while typing; to move to the next column or row to enter your text, simply click in it.

To add or delete rows or columns, simply right click in the table where you wish to add or delete them and select as appropriate from the menu.



To edit text settings click the cog icon. text_widget_1.png


This will open the text settings modal where you can set a background color to your text widget, add padding or apply a drop shadow. Click Save and your changes will be applied to your text widget. 


You can embed media such as tweets, videos, and audio, into your text.  See
