To make simple edits to boxes on a section page, use Edit Mode.

There are two ways to turn Edit Mode on and off:

  1. Use the keyboard shortcut

  2. Use the Admin menu

Once Edit Mode is activated, you will see red lines around boxes, and three buttons on every box:

Edit Mode Action Buttons

Edit box content (green button)

The green edit button allows you to edit the content that sits WITHIN the box. What you can edit depends on the box type. For example, paragraph text or lists of content.

Edit box properties (blue button)

The blue edit button allows you to change the appearance of the box, for example adding a border or making the background transparent.

Delete box (red button)

Once you delete a box you can't undo this action - so make sure you're sure before you delete!
