Inserting a Block into a Page


You can insert blocks into your pages above and/or below the WYSIWYG areas, giving you lots of flexibility in their placement.

Take a look at the UNG Block Sampler to get a feel for different looks and functionalities of all of the blocks.


You will learn how to insert a block you’ve already created into a page and when to use blocks.
