What is Lorem ipsum?
Info def

In the printing industry and on the Web, lorem ipsum is a succession of words that imitate Latin and temporarily used to grade the layout pending the final text.

You can substitute this text for your content.

A Text block is composed of two areas: a Title area and a Paragraph area. The Content panel enables you to choose the areas to display.

Internet users often skim through the text, so you need to grab their attention with words in bold or in colour, links, passages in italics or highlighted… Therefore, the text toolbar is the best tool for your prose and to be more efficient, a small toolbar faithfully goes along with text selection.

The Button block

Buttons are effective to call your website visitors to action. You must pay attention to the small sentence that encourages Internet users to click. Add a Button block to your website by dragging and dropping it on your page.
