This article applies to the Bluehost Builder (our express website editor not connected to WordPress). For information about using the Bluehost Website Builder (for WordPress), please see Bluehost Website Builder (for WordPress) - How to Add and Edit Text.
If you are not sure which version you are currently using, please see Bluehost Website Builder (for WordPress) vs Bluehost Builder for more information.
Adding TextTo begin, you will need to access your Bluehost Builder Editor.
- Open the page or post you wish to add text to.
- Click the + (Add Section) icon, then choose Media/text or Text from the 'All categories' list to the left.
- Choose a template to add your text to. Filler text will be used as a placeholder to give you an idea of where and how your text will appear.
- Highlight the filler text, then begin typing or paste your text in to replace the placeholder content.
- Format your text as needed.
Editing TextTo edit your text at any time, simply highlight the text you would like to update. The text toolbar should appear above your highlighted text. You can use the text toolbar or the Text menu to the left to format your text.
Text ToolbarFrom the text toolbar, you can add effects and links to, resize, and change the color of your text.
Adding EffectsUse the B, I, and U icons to Bold, Italicize, or Underline your text
Adding LinksClick the 'chainlink' icons to add or remove links. For more information on adding links, please see Bluehost Builder - How to Add Links.
Resizing TextYou will see a percentage on the toolbar. This indicates the current zoom on your text. Use the - and + icons to either side of the percentage to zoom out or in.
Changing ColorClick on the A icon to the far right of the toolbar to view and choose from available colors. Available colors will depend on the color scheme you chose. For more information on changing your color scheme, please see Bluehost Builder - How to Update Theme Style.
Text Side MenuThe Text or Media/text side menu will appear to the right of your screen. If you do not see it, you may need to move your mouse to the far right of your screen to pop it out. These settings are more Section settings than Text settings, but you can set alignment here and control what elements appear in your section.
Set AlignmentUnder Layout settings, click on the Content alignment setting, and choose your preferred alignment.
Updates will reflect within your Bluehost Builder immediately; however, you should still Save or Publish your site when finished.
