Edit buttons and quotes in ID7 page layouts

  1. Go to the page where you want to change the content.
  2. Select Edit content blocks – typically at the top left of the blocks in your page layout. The button is only available when you have contributor permission or above. If this button is not visible, contact the page owner for permission to edit the page.

  3. Locate the block containing the button or quote that you wish to change, then select Edit at the bottom right:

  4. Leave the Link box empty.

    Note: do not change the value in the Title box – for example, hp-04-button or hp-06-quote. Doing so causes the content block to not display in the page layout.
  5. Select the link in the Content box – this is the button label. To change the link, select the Insert/edit link button and amend the link in the Url box:

  6. Leave the Metadata, date and Tags options empty. When you have finished editing the button or quote, select Save changes.
  7. You're prompted to confirm the changes. SiteBuilder does not save history for content blocks and overwriting previous content cannot be undone. In the Overwrite permanently window, select Save.
  8. Return to the parent page to see the updated button or quote.

Note on permissions

When you come to make your page layout page live or visible to most users, you need to ensure they also have viewing permissions on the subpage where the contents are edited (normally called 'hp-contents'). Otherwise users will only see the top page, and get the layout grey blocks where the content should be, but no actual content, as that is being pulled from the subpage.
