Block Editor

Properties

The Properties tab allows you to customise the appearance of the Block. The Block title appears directly above the Block content. You may toggle whether the title should be visible or not. You may also toggle whether the Block style, defined in the Template Editor as either Basic or Advanced, should be applied. It can sometimes be helpful to disable the Block style when using large images, such as banners, which should not be framed.

Optionally, the Block title may be an image, although it should be noted that fixed images will not adapt to multi-Template or multi-Language environments.

The Block position determines in which Columns the Block should appear in the Layout Editor. Some Blocks are designed to best fit the side Columns, whereas others favour the wider centre Column. Visibility determines which users will be able to view the Block. Registered users are those that have registered on your site and created user accounts. You may choose to make Blocks available to registered users only, non-registered users only, or both.


Content

For custom Blocks, the content itself can be edited using either the WYSIWYG editor or simply an HTML text box, depending on your preference. Split Screen mode supplies the WYSIWYG editor by default, otherwise it can be launched in an optional popup window.


Inserts

Forms created using the Form Editor may be inserted into any custom Block simply by selecting the desired form and clicking the Insert Form button. In Split Screen mode, position the cursor in the WYSIWYG editor where you would like the form to go. The form will be inserted as a small section of code in the format {%form_1} - known as a variable. If you are not using Split Screen mode, the code will be appended to the bottom of the Block content. When the Block is viewed on the site, the code will automatically be converted to the full form.

It is also possible to insert Blocks using variables, in the same way as described above.


Settings

The Settings tab, if relevant to the Block you're editing, enables you to customise the Block to your requirements.


Objects

The Objects tab, if relevant to the Block you're editing, enables you to assign objects to the Block, and to reorder them as required.
