Editable text

To be used on individual text-based elements, making content within each editable. This is the editable option that you'll be using the most.

block-edit or -block-edit: true

Use it as close to the copy as possible, outside of bold and italic formatting tags, and outside of a string of text that has a link within it.

Adding variable names to text elements saves their content. Each unique content piece requires its own variable name. Using the same variable name on multiple content pieces will update content for all pieces when one is updated.

data-block="variable-name" or -block-var: variable-name


<p class="block-edit" data-block="example-text" style="text-align: left">Content</p>

Minimum/Maximum characters

Sets a character limit for content in an element.

block-minchar-# or -block-minchar: #

block-maxchar-# or -block-maxchar: #


<div class="block-edit block-maxchar-10">Text copy</div>

block-no-subscript or -block-no-subscript: false


<div class="block-edit block-subscript">Text copy for an area.</div>

Disable text

Disables text from being edited in an element. For example, a button that should only have its link updated.

block-no-text or -block-text: false


<a href="#" class="block-edit block-no-text">More info</a>


Allows a text area to be removed.

block-remove or -block-remove: true


<h1 class="block-edit block-remove">Title</h1>

In emails only, for text where a link is added, Blocks Edit automatically uses the styling of the immediate text around the link and underlines it.

Link styles

You can enable link style options to choose from for your emails by setting a variable name for them. Each enabled link is set globally, and can be used for all of the theme's emails.

The link style is shown when a text link is edited, as styles numbers. The first option is always the set default style.

To set a link style, add the data-style attribute with a unique variable name on an example link and it will get included among the link style options.


<div class="block-edit" data-block="example-name">Text copy <a href="#" data-style="link-standard" style="color: #ff0000">with a link</a>.</div>

Disables option for adding a element around content for linking.

block-no-link or -block-link: false


<div class="block-edit block-no-link" data-block="example-name">Text copy for an area.</div>
