The basic text widget provides a range of text formatting options plus the widget styling options that enable you to create a variety of different styles.
The widgets will vary in size depending on the following:
The text will wrap around widgets placed on the right hand side and will do the same for widgets placed on the left (although only for those layouts with horizontal menus (navigation bars).
You can include a link to either another web page on the same website or a link to an external website. When you add a link then the ">> more info" tag is added at the bottom of the text.
You can also create a three column display for the entire web page through using just three widgets aligned horizontally. You can see how this could be achieved by the widget #6 example below right, and you can also add an image to the top of the widegt by using the Image + Text widget option.
