Use the Text Block page element to add a section of text anywhere on your SportsEngine website. Creating text in the Text Block text editor is just like creating text in a word document-- you can create plain paragraph text, large colorful header text, or text hyperlinks, and you can add bullet points, images, tables, and more.

Add Web and Email Links
You can also add links to other webpages or to a new email within a text block by highlighting a phrase or section of text and clicking the chain (hyperlink) icon in the text editor.
Web (URL) Link
To link to another webpage select URL
as the link type after clicking the chain (hyperlink icon). Then paste in the URL that you would like to link to.
The target tab within the Link editor allows you to determine whether the linked page opens in the same window or a new window of your browser when you click on the link. We recommend selecting New Window (_blank)
for external links so that the visitor doesn't leave your website when clicking on a link.
Add email links to email addresses within your text so that when a visitor clicks on an email address, a new email is launched from their default email provider. To link to an email, highlight the email address, click the chain (hyperlink icon), and then select Email
as the link type. Finally, add the email address that you would like to link (required) and an email subject or email body (optional) that you would like to autofill in the new email.
Add Anchors and Anchor Links
The last type of link is a link to an Anchor
in the text. When website visitors click an Anchor Link
, they will be taken to the location of the anchor on the same webpage. In other words, clicking the anchor link will scroll down the webpage to specific content (wherever you placed the anchor).
Before you can add an Anchor Link, you must add an anchor somewhere in your webpage content. An anchor is just a way to mark a specific spot on your webpage. To add an anchor, place your cursor where you would like to insert the anchor and click the flag icon in the text editor. Add an Anchor Name
, such as 'section-3,' in the pop-up and click OK.
Once you add an anchor, you can create a link to that anchor. Anchor links are usually placed at the top of a webpage to allow a visitor to skip to specific sections of content on your webpage. To add an anchor link, click the chain (hyperlink icon), select Link to Anchor in the Text
as the link type, select the anchor that you would like to link to, then click OK.
