Use Boxed Text Content Blocks

This feature requires Author user level or higher.

The Boxed Text content block provides several options for adding content, like images and links, to your campaign. You can also use Boxed Text blocks to wrap text around an image, set different background colors behind your text in each Boxed Text block, and more.

For the same style choices, but without the background-style options, use a Text block.

Insert the Boxed Text Block

  1. Navigate to the Design step of the Campaign Builder.
    Click and drag Boxed Text into layout
  2. Click and drag the Boxed Text block into your campaign layout.
  3. In the Content tab of the editing window, add your text. If you are pasting in content from an outside source, like a website or word-processing program, use either the Paste as plain-text or Paste from Rich Text Editor option to prevent extra styling code from being added.
    Insert content into the Content tab of the Boxed Text block
  4. Make changes in the Style and Settings tabs or click Save & Close if you’re done editing the content block.

Change Style and Settings

  1. Navigate to the Design step of the Campaign Builder.
  2. Click the Boxed Text block you want to edit to bring up the editing window.
  3. Change the style for the content block in the Style tab. You can change the Text Color, Font Family, Font Size, Font Style, Font Weight, Line Height, and text alignment, as well as the border and background color for the box.

    Change these settings for all Boxed Text blocks in your campaign layout by checking the Apply To All Existing Boxed Text Blocks option.
  4. In the Settings tab, you can choose to make the content block two columns instead of one, and also set the width for each column by selecting one of the options under Column Split.

  5. Return to the Content tab to make any line-by-line styling changes, or apply styling to just a few words in the content block, using the toolbar in the editing window.
    If you chose to set the Boxed Text block to two columns, you can toggle between the Column 1 and Column 2 tabs to add and edit content.

  6. Click the Save & Close button at the bottom of the editing window.

Other Ways to Use Boxed Text Block

  • Insert an image and set it to left or right alignment to wrap text around the image.
  • Create a four-column layout. To do this, select a two-column layout on the Template step, add a Boxed Text block to each column, and then set each block to two columns on the Settings tab, like we show above.
  • Use custom social icons instead of the default options provided in Social Follow and Social Share blocks. Upload your own custom-designed icons to a Boxed Text block, and link images appropriately.
    • Social Follow Link to your social channel profiles, such as
    • Social Share Link using the following merge tags and links:
      • Facebook: *|SHARELINK:FACEBOOK|*
      • Twitter: *|SHARELINK:TWITTER|*
      • Forward: *|FORWARD|*
      • Google+:*|URL:ARCHIVE_LINK_SHORT|*
      • LinkedIn: *|SHARELINK:LINKEDIN|*
      • Instapaper:*|URL:ARCHIVE_LINK_SHORT|*
  • Design a layout with different colored backgrounds for each Boxed Text block. Background colors are set for each campaign layout section—such as header, body, footer—in the Design tab for your campaign. However, by using Boxed Text blocks, you can call out content sections using a background color that is different from the section’s background color.
