  • Can I create a horizontal navigation for my site?

    You can create a horizontal navigation in BB2 using the horizontal navigation option. Drop the Navigation Block on the Bottom of Header or Top of Header Sitewide Dot and select horizontal navigation.

    Customize the menu and sub-menu items.

  • Why is there a no-such-url.html page listed in my Page Manager. I did not create that page.

    This is the page that visitors see if they ever try to reach a page on your site that does not exist (or a broken link to one of your pages). SBI! creates this page automatically and includes it in Page Manager so you can customize it if you want to.

    There is no option to delete this page because you do need it. You can leave the page as is or customize it to your own preferences.

  • I placed a headline (text, image, etc.) on the page and it shows on all pages. I'm not sure why.

    You have entered the content into a Sitewide Dot in BlockBuilder. Please move the block with the content you are seeing on all pages outside the Sitewide Dot. This will resolve the issue.

    To learn more about Sitewide Dots, watch this video...

  • When I put an Image Block on the page and then add a Text Block next to it (I want the text to wrap around it), why does the Text Block drop down below rather than stay next to the Image Block?

    The non-wrapped presentation is temporary. When you drag over an Image Block, aligning it to the left or right, and then drag and drop a Text Block beside it, you will see one block on top of the other block. But that display changes when you preview and/or build the page. You will see the text automatically wrapped around the image.

    Please note... If you center the image, the text will display directly below it, with no wrapping.

  • I added some HTML code for a text link (or image, ad, etc.) where I wanted it. Why is the actual code showing instead of the link (image, ad, etc)?

    BlockBuilder is like a WYSIWYG ("What You See Is What You Get") editor so you don't insert any HTML code in a Headline or Text block. Whenever you want to create a link within your content, use the Link Tool on the toolbar.

    For specific directions go to the Creating Links help here...

    Important Note: Add HTML code for a video, Adsense, etc. to a Raw HTML Block...

  • How do you create a single line break in a block of text or a headline? Whenever I hit enter, it creates a paragraph break.

    As is the case with most Rich Text Editors, hitting the Enter key will result in a paragraph break. If you want to move some text to the next line in a BlockBuilder Text Block or a Headline Block, use shift + Enter (or Return). This will result in a single line break.

    For more information and tips about using the Headline and Text blocks, review the steps in this video help...
