Editing Text in an HTML Module

Editing a Default HTML Module

By default, when using the page template (both Parish Template and SchoolTemplate) to create a new page, a HTML module is automatically added. This default HTML module is where the text of the page should go.

To edit this default HTML module, you must first change the module title (from Ministry and Content for the Parish and Content for the School to the page’s title).

  1. On the right side of the module title, click the gear symbol.

NOTE: When pasting content, it is recommended that you use the Paste as Plain Text tool. This is because many other web pages and applications (such as Word) have hidden formatting that may not translate to DNN. When pasting, click the Paste as Plain Text tool (editing text in a html module 7 ). Then press CTRL and V on the keyboard to paste the text within the new window. Then click OK.

NOTE: There should be no need to adjust the font, color, or size of the text. Using the Formatting styles instead.

NOTE: If editing a lot of content, save often by clicking Save and then going back into the module. This is the only way to save your work.
