Text Module Editing

The Most Basic and Essential Editing

The text module is the most basic, frequently used, and frequently edited module on the website. We will focus on this module.

When we click on a text module the dialogue that pops up will have 3 tabs: General, Style, and Advanced. You shouldn’t need to worry about the Style or Advanced tabs of the module, these settings have already been dictated when the web developer created the website. 99.99% of the time you will remain on the General tab. In the General tab you can change the content that is contained in the module, you can add and remove links and you can add images to the content, but do this judiciously as too many poorly formatted images will slow down the page and the site altogether.

Editing the Text

Primarily, you will be editing the content of the text module. This is done much like writing and editing an email. You can see the module’s content in the largest field in the dialogue; you will add and remove the text as necessary like you would an email. The formatting choices can be found above this field starting with the “B” for bold and the “I” for italic. An important and frequently used feature of this formatting bar is the link icon, which, you guessed it, creates a link.

When you are finished editing the text module click “Save” in the bottom right corner of the dialogue. If you made a mistake and changed the wrong text module click “Cancel,” and Beaver Builder will ignore the changes that you made to the module.


In order to create a link, you should start with some text in the content area. Highlight the text that you want to become a link a new pop-up will appear asking you to “Paste URL or type to search”. If you are linking to a page outside of the main website www.SKC.edu then you should copy it and paste it into this pop-up and click the blue button with the white “backwards-L” arrow. If you are linking to a page in the main SKC website you can start typing the name of the page as you type a list of possible pages will populate, and choose the page you wish to link to here. You will want to click on the blue button with the backward L arrow again otherwise, it will not add the URL to the selected words.

Links change from time to time so there will come a time when you don’t need to change the highlighted link words, but you will need to change the link’s URL. To do this, you put your cursor on the highlighted link words, a pop-up will immediately appear with two options a pencil that will allow you to input a new URL and a broken link that will allow you to remove the link URL altogether. If you change the link URL don’t forget to click the blue button to apply that change.
