Content Block Editor

What is the Content Block Editor?

When you create a new page in Portal Page, you will have a choice between two text editors to input your content.

While the Article Style Editor is a standard, straightforward editor, the Content Block Editor is tool to make page building easier. Using Blocks, you can insert, rearrange, and style content with very little technical knowledge. It's as simple as just adding a block instead of having to deal with coding.

How do I use the Content Block Editor?

First, navigate to Pages > Portal Pages > Add New Page.

In the Choose your Editor section, choose Content Block Editor.

The editor will start with one Row with a Text Block already in place. To add a new block Hover your curser over the sample text, and you will see the outline and options for the Row.

To quickly add an additional  Text Block in the Row, you can click the icon. The Block will be added to the top or the bottom of the row, respective of which positioned icon you click.

To interact with a Row or Block, hover your cursor over the respective element to show a toolbar. You can click the icon and drag it into place within the editor.

You can also click the icon to duplicate the Row or Block, or the icon to delete it.

Creating and modifying Rows and Columns

When using the Block Editor, your page will be sectioned divided into main sections called Rows. These Rows can be further divided into columns. Blocks can then be nested within each Row of each Column.

To create a new Row, click the icon. 

This will open a modal, prompting you to select from a Row with One Column, Two Columns, or Three Columns.

The Row will be added to the above or below the current Row, respective of which positioned icon you click.

The above image is an example of a Row with Three Columns. The content in each Column can be configured independently.

To change the Column Type of a Row, click the icon shown below. This icon will be different depending on which Column Type is currently being used for the Row.

Switching a Three Column Row to a Two Column Row, for example, will shift the extra block into an existing Column so that you will not lose its content.

Block Types

Text Block

As of now, the only available block is a Text Block. This type of block can be for text, images, videos, pretty much any type of content that you would normally be able to add in a WYSIWYG editor.

To edit a Text Block, click the icon in the toolbar.

A modal will appear in which you can edit the content. You can use Dynamic Data Placeholders by clicking the {x} button, and can switch to HTML mode by clicking the <> button.
