Text, Tables, Hyperlinks, Flash Files, and Images
Before you start working on website content, we suggest that you select
the appropriate website language in Settings tab > Languages >
Website language menu.
The website language is a site-wide setting that defines the language in
which you will be adding content to your website. It affects the
- The language in which certain website elements (in particular those
provided by third-party services), such as Google Search and
navigation buttons in image galleries, will be shown. Note that not
all third-party services and modules provided by the editor support
all available languages.
- The direction in which you will type text in the editor (from left to
right or from right to left). If you select a right-to-left language,
your website content and design will be RTL-enabled.
Changing a website language does not reload the currently selected
website topic in a different language. The topic language will remain
unchanged, however, the text orientation will change.
To add text, lists, tables, or images to a page:
- Go to the Modules tab, select Text & Images, and drag the
module to the page.
- Type the text on the screen and use the icons on the module’s toolbar
to format the text, add tables, hyperlinks, and images.
The toolbar and panels of the Text & Images module provide access to
the following tools and functions.

that do not support or are configured to not show images, the
description will be shown instead.
