Editing Page Title


It's best to know what you're doing! This line will let you know what page you are editing.

If it is a new page you are editing, it will read "Editing New Page" until the page has been saved. When editing layouts and snippets, the notice will reflect this.

Format Content

The format bar appears in the content window on the edit page (on all body and additional tabs), and is also used in the create layout and snippets windows. The format bar allows easy formatting using common HTML tags, adding lists, links, images, icons and liquid logic.

To add a formatted element from the format bar, click the desired button and enter the information between the HTML tags, or highlight the existing content you wish to format and then press the button to wrap the content with the HTML tags.

Save the edits and open the page to view the formatting.
