Adding a Text Block Widget to a Page in BaseKit

As of June 19, 2013, BaseKit is not available on new Shared accounts; however, HostGator Website Builder is offered as a replacement.

Text is one of the most important features of your website, as your text is what describes and sells your site to your viewers. Being able to add and remove text from your site allows you to manage your content more smoothly, and essentially streamlines the production of your website.

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

You can edit your text by simply clicking the settings icon on the left of the widget. This will allow you to change font colors, font styles, as well as adding and editing links.
