Text Widget

Use text tools to change the look of a Text or Title widget. Change the font, color, alignment and style of text using a simple editing interface. This lets you quickly make style changes to specific text on your site to highlight key points and organize information.

To add text to your site, in the left panel, click Widgets, and then click and drag the Text widget into your site.

To learn more about adding widgets to your site, see Add Widgets.

Update to New Text Editor

The new text editor includes improved technology for increased stability, a wider range of available text sizes (up to 500px), allows you to use different text styles within the same widget and more.


Existing text in your site can be edited using the old text editor, with the option to update to the new editor. All new text will be edited using the new text editor.

To upgrade and use the new text editor:

  1. Click the text you want to edit to open editing mode. 
  2. On the text editor, click Update text editor.
  3. On the confirmation message, click to confirm you want to update.

    After confirming the update, you will not have the option to revert to the old text editor.

The following may cause the update to the new text editor to fail:

  • Custom code where the HTML is not valid.
  • Bad internet connection.
  • Maximum site CSS storage capacity has been reached.

If your text contains certain tags that are not supported, you may not see the option to upgrade the editor. The following tags are not supported: form, svg, iframe, audio, canvas, dialog, embed, hr, input, map, picture, select, textarea, range, table, progress, script, ins, style.

For more information about the improved capabilities of the new text editor, see the New Text Editor.

  3. Use the inline editing options in the bar above the text to edit text styles, sizes, fonts, alignment, or add links.

Add Bullet and Number Lists
