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.

Blocks are small pieces of content. They contain text and/or images that can be used on more than one page, or has special formatting that you cannot attain easily via the WYSIWYG.
