What is a block, and how to add it to your site

Blocks are your site’s elements designed to help you customize the pages. Sitebuilder+ offers more than 20 various block types, such as Text, Images, Video, Headline, Products, Contacts, and more. View the full block type list.

Blocks come predesigned to match the look and feel of your template. This helps preserve your website’s clean and professional layout on any device.

Tip: Think of your site structure as the one that is divided horizontally – blocks go one on top of another, but not side to side.

Adding a new block to your template

You can insert blocks between existing blocks, on top of them, or below them to create a page structure that fits your website strategy. Here’s how you do this:

  1. Highlight any existing block on your page. You will see two (+) Plus buttons – on its top and bottom.

  4. After you click the desired block type, the available predesigned blocks will appear in the new screen section. Choose your block’s layout from the available options.
