Add and Edit Text in Square Online

Text is one of the most important forms of content on a website. Learn more about how to incorporate and work with text on your site in the Square Online site editor.

Add and Edit a Text Section

The first step is to choose or create a page you want to add text to. Next, select the Add section button to open the sections list.

Sections are categorised by purpose, and while many include at least some text, the sections in the Organise category in the menu are the best options for adding more than a few lines. Select a section to see a preview, and select Add to apply the chosen section to the page. Learn more about adding sections to Square Online.

Once you’ve added a section, you’ll see the settings on the left. Each text section has different options, but most include additional layout and style settings. You can also turn off some elements using the toggle switches. Select any item in the list to edit the settings, or select the default text directly on the page to edit and replace it with your own.

Add and Copy Groups of Text

Some sections include an option to add and copy groups of text within the section. Select Add group to add a new group of text, or hover over the group and select Duplicate to copy an existing group.

Select any item in the Groups list in the menu to edit the settings. You can edit the default text for each group individually, but other options like the layout and style apply to the whole section. Turning off elements with the toggle switches will also apply to the entire section.

Rearrange or Remove Groups of Text

You can rearrange the text on the page by selecting and dragging the groups up or down to a new spot in the list. To delete a group of text within a section, hover over the group and select Remove.

Add Links to Text


Some text sections include linked text that you can edit. Select the text on the page to open the settings, and select the Link option. Select the Add Link button and choose the link destination in the pop-up window. You can also turn these off with the toggle switch.

To add links to plain text in a section, click inside the section and use your cursor to highlight the word or phrase you want to link. Click the link icon on the left, and choose the link destination in the pop-up window.
