Adding a Text Block Widget to a Page in BaseKit


As of June 19, 2013, BaseKit is unavailable on new Shared (SW) accounts; however, WordPress is an excellent alternative to this builder. The instructions on how to install WordPress are discussed in the article: How to Install WordPress With Softaculous.

Text is one of the most important features of your website, as your text is what describes and sells your site to your viewers. Adding and removing text from your site allows you to manage your content more smoothly and streamlines your website's production.

With BaseKit, you can easily add and remove blocks of text in your website, allowing you to format the text area's size, links, font colors, and style with ease and simplicity.
