Add the component to the page. Body Text is blank by default.
Open the component to add or edit the content. It includes a Rich Text Editor that supports basic formatting (bold, italics and bullets) as well as hyperlinks.
Pre-formatted text can be pasted in from other sources (e.g. a word processor) and this allows inclusion of additional text formatting such as sub- and super-script, but any incompatibly formatted text will be suppressed (e.g. titles or images).
For hyperlinks, the option is provided to open in new page. When that is selected, an additional icon will follow the linked text, to alert visitors that they will be taken to a new browser window, or even leave the current website. If the hyperlink goes to a downloadable file, an document icon will instead be shown as well as the file size if the file is on the same server. (Read more about link labels.)
