Content blocks

You create content blocks to display generic information, that is, all information that is not a predefined content type, such as news or event announcements. For example, a content block can be useful when you need to create text that will be used on many pages of your website, such as the company address.

You manage content blocks on the Content blocks shared across pages and templates page.

To open the page, in the main menu in the upper part of the screen, click Content » Content blocks.
The Content blocks shared across pages and templates page appears, displaying a list of all created content blocks together with actions you can perform on them.
Use this page to create, edit, and manage shared content blocks, which you can then reuse on as many pages as needed.

NOTE: You create and edit Forms in the classic interface. For more information, see New content editing experience and the classic interface.

IMPORTANT: Shared content blocks do not have workflow. When you edit a content block, the change is immediately visible on all pages and templates that use the content block.

To display content blocks on your website, you must use the Content block widget and you must configure it. For more information, see Display content on your website.

You can set permission for all content blocks, as well as individual permissions for each content block. For more information, see Grant permissions for content.
