To put together and build your website, you will be primarily using our block based content builder tool. This allows you to quickly build content that will provide a consistent experience across all devices and platforms.
In this section, we will also cover how to add additional pages to your site and edit your website info.
This guide will cover the following topics:
Whilst editing a Content Page, you will be using our content building tools. Here you will be building a page by adding various content blocks onto the page. To edit a page and content to it, click on Content in the Top Menu and then clicking on the pencil ‘Edit This Page’ icon next to the page you want to edit.
If you are editing a new page that hasn’t got any content, Create will ask you to pick a page preset. This is just a template to help get you started, depending on the type of page you are making. Create will generate a page with some blocks in place containing example content, you can remove these blocks.
For this guide, we are using the Blank Page option.
Once a Preset has been selected, you will be taken to the content builder screen. To begin adding content to the page, click on the ‘+’ icon shown in the lower left of the screen.
The Block Selector menu will slide in from the left-hand side of the screen.
By default, the Popular category is selected. This is a group of our most popular blocks and is a good place to start with. You can scroll up and down the blocks to see the selection.
Clicking on the Popular category will display a drop-down menu of the different block categories. There are many different types of content blocks you can add to your website and they’re worth exploring in further detail.
For this guide, we’re going to focus on the ‘Inline Image & Text’ block, found in the Popular category.
Many of our blocks have different variants. If you see a block with the words ‘>Show Variants’ displayed, you can click on this and alternative variations of that block will be displayed.
To add any content types, it’s simply a case of clicking and dragging the block from the left-hand panel onto the main preview area.
Depending on the type of block added it will either contain placeholder image(s) and/or text.
To replace the image with your own, place your mouse over the image and a small pop-up menu will appear, as shown below.
Clicking on the first icon, ‘Image Settings’ will open up a new window. Clicking on the ‘Select’ option for Image Selection will display all the images you have already uploaded along with the option of adding a new one.
In this menu, you can either select one of the images you have already uploaded to Create (if any) or upload a new image from your computer by clicking “Upload Image” and selecting it in the file browser window that appears.
To change the placeholder text to your own words, move your mouse over the existing text and click. Create will highlight all of the text and a text-edit pop-up menu will appear.
Once highlighted, the existing text will disappear when you start to type your own words. Using the pop-up menu, you can add bold, italic and bullet points to your text. When you have finished adding your own text, click the tick icon to finish.
After adding your own images and text, always remember to click the save icon before signing out of Create.
After adding several different content blocks and replacing the images and text with your own you will quickly end up with a website page, like the one below.
