Help Elf here, with this week's release. A few weeks ago, we released the Text/Image Block, to much acclaim. This week, we make it even better.

Now, when you click on the dummy text in the Text Block, that text will immediately disappear, leaving a clean block for you to paste or enter the text you want to go there.

If you've been avoiding the Text/Image Block because of all that dummy text (yes, it's been known to put some people off their food for a day or two 😉), you'll want to check it out now, just to see the amazing disappearing dummy text.

But read the help first! ... block.html

I'm a bit slow on the uptake but I've just tried the text/image block on my Playground page and I am super impressed!

Thank you everyone behind the scenes for making this possible :-)

Love Ya!

I have one question though, from what I can see, you are unable to put a headline into this block.

I managed to work around this by increasing the size of the text and using the Bold function.

Yes, Marylyn, that's what I do too. It would be helpful to be able to drag a headline block (or html or whatever) in there - maybe one for the Wish List thread?

Marylyn, I once did the same back in the early days, and it turned out to be problematic. I'd hate to see anyone fall into the same habit. One reason is the site page loses its H2, H3, and H4 header tags when text is simply made bold to simulate headers. Granted, the benefit of on-page SEO isn't what it once was, but header tags still add their weight to keywords and topics. Also, by simulating headers with bold text, the weighting benefit of having keywords in bold text elsewhere on the page becomes watered down.

However, the biggest problems arose when I needed to increase the font size of my content and when I needed to change the header colors for a new site design. Instead of a couple of simple clicks in Site Designer for a sitewide edit, it resulted in needless editing of every site page to ensure all text and headers were of uniform size and color. Now, I rarely, if ever, alter font size and color within a text block, and whenever I do, I make a note of it for possible reference later. I hope this is helpful.

Thank you Don for that insightful explanation Maybe, as Cath suggests, I should pop a request into onto the Wish List.

...maybe one for the Wish List thread?...

I like it. I don't have to put in an extra text block.
Talking about images, I wished SBI would accept photos bigger than 1.5 Megabites. If it did then I would reduce the size of the pics in picnic. I have many shots of 3, 4 ,5 and 10 MB in size.. :)
