Adding or Removing Content Blocks Using Design Tools in Canvas

Content blocks are organized sections that you can add text, images, video, and lists to the block. Template themes are also created to style content blocks. 

Note: To avoid breaking the HTML codes that are embedded in content blocks remove content blocks from the Design Tools rather than in the Rich Editor in Canvas. Editing text within the content blocks is accomplished through the Canvas Rich Editor. For more information about editing content, please review the article “How to Edit Content Blocks“. 

To add a content block, follow these steps:

  1. Open the page for editing in Canvas.
  2. Launch Design Tools.
  3. Click Add/Rearrange Content Blocks.
  4. In the Add Block drop-down, click the content block(s)that you want to add.
  5. Place your cursor in the list of content blocks and then drag and drop the block to its new position. 
  6. To delete a block click the red x
  7. On the content page, click Save.
