Lesson info

Webflow's text block is a generic text element, best used for text that isn't a heading, paragraph, or link. A good example of this would be a copyright notice, like the one you probably have in your website's footer. In this video, we'll show you how to add text blocks to your design, and style them.

Text Blocks can be styled just like a paragraph, but they're meant to be used any time you need text on the page that isn’t supposed to be treated like a heading, or a paragraph, or a link.

And a good example of this would be a copyright notice.

In fact, a Text Block is just a div block with some text inside of it. Want another way to add a Text Block? Drag a div block right into your project. Double click and start typing. Hey look — it's a text block!

The reason we use specific elements like headings or paragraphs (or text blocks) is because browsers and screen readers, and search engines specifically look to this type of content to figure out how the text on your page is organized — figuring out what kind of information is on your page.

Oh and by the way, here’s what Text Blocks shouldn't be used for: cramming in dozens of keywords in an effort to game search rankings. Check with Google: it flat-out doesn't work. And you'll look ridiculous.

We can of course style our Text Blocks, too, just like we can style headings or paragraphs.

That's the Text Block.
