  • Title + paragraph: you have 2 text areas: a title and a paragraph. This style is the default style of a Text block.

Creation of predefined styles

Content styles on SiteW

To customize your styles, you can start from scratch or reuse one of your styles and copy it to just modify a part of it.

The little extra
Info stepup
💡 Users who subscribed to an Essential or upper package can create unlimited predefined styles. On the contrary, users who subscribed to a Starter package can create a single predefined style.

When you select a Text block, the next one you will add to your website will automatically have the same style.

It’s also possible to go back to the style by default. You just need to click the dedicated button.

There is a big advantage: If you have already created your website, you can modify the style of your blocks at any time.


Text edition

In your Text block, you will find features that look like the features of text editors, which are for editing your text.  

When you have created and completed your Text block, you can customize your content. When you click on your text, a toolbar will be displayed.

Toolbar of the Text block

Thus, you can:

  • choose your text font and size

  • align text on the left, right, center or justify it

  • put in bold, in italics or underlined

  • change text colour or underline text in colour

  • add an image to your text

  • add a link to another page or website

  • modify content code (for experts)

Choose title levels

Title levels correspond to hierarchic levels:

Title levels on SiteW

Your readers and search engines will like well-structured texts with a clear and coherent title level. The Text block offers you two options.

Levels of the SiteW Text block

Automatic title level

An algorithm evaluates automatically the optimal title level for your text. Thus, you don’t need to worry about that!

Manual title level

You can choose among 4 title levels presented in their HTML form:

  • H1: main title (level 1)

  • H2, H3, H4: subtitles of different levels (2, 3 and 4)

  • P: paragraph; that is to say, it isn’t a title

A single H1 per page
Info warning
This is one of the most important SEO rules (SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization). This rule consists in defining a single H1 per page. You respect this constraint when you opt for automatic title levels.

Implement the different tools

When you add tables, lists or images to your text, you make your content dynamic.

It’s easy! Such as for modifying the style of the body of your text, you just need to click it to display the toolbar. Then you will access different contents to add as you wish.

  • Tables 

When you select the little arrow on the right of the bar, you can select the Table tool. You can define the number of lines and columns, as well as modify it according to your needs.

  • Media and Images

Icons enable you to illustrate your content by adding images and media (videos, GIF…).

  • Lists

To organize your ideas, you should use lists with bullet points or numbers.

Info play
It’s easy to paste content written on a Word document. You just need to use the “Paste as text” feature to the right of the toolbar.

Thanks to these tools, you can make your texts even more dynamic and grab your customers’ attention. The Text block offers all the necessary tools to add texts that suit your needs, whether it is in terms of content, user-friendliness, or design.
