Thoughts on “How to use the Widgets tab in the BoldGrid Customizer

  • How do I position my call to action text lower on the page?  I tried to enter some carriage returns before the text to push it lower, but these are ignored.  Is there anything else I can insert that will push the text to the lower part of the page but be invisible?

    • I was able to move the “Call to action” widget down the page by adding a margin above it. Here are the steps:

      1. Log into BoldGrid.
      2. Click the “Customize” link.
      3. Click “Widgets.”
      4. Click “Call to Action.”
      5. Click “Visual Editor: Call To Action .”
      6. You will see your call to action, click the “Text” tab.
      7. Add the following line of code above all the code (you may have to move the code down).
        &ltdiv style="margin-top:100px;"&gt&lt/div&gt

      This will move the call to action down 100 pixels. Adjust the number as needed. For example of you want the call to action further down the page you can increase this to 150px.

      Thank you,
