It’s easy to customize your content with blocks. It’s just as easy to customize the blocks themselves. While some blocks have specific settings (check the articles in this collection for details), they all share a few common features.

Adjust Padding

Padding is the amount of blank space that appears before and after the block. While we find that a standard 30 pixels (px) of space gives content plenty of breathing room, you can adjust it to your liking. Here’s how.

  1. Mouse-over your block and click the Edit button that appears. Select the Settings tab.
  2. Increase or decrease the top and bottom padding using the appropriate drop-down menus. You can choose as much as 100px of padding or as little as no padding at all.
  3. Click the X in the upper right corner of the sidebar to close it.

Add Background Color

Background color makes your content stand out. When available, this option fills all the white space around your block content with the color of your choosing.

  1. Mouse-over your block and click the Edit button that appears. Select the Settings tab.
  2. Add a background color by entering the hex code or manually selecting a color.
  3. Click the X in the upper right corner of the sidebar to close it.
