Hero Expanded Blocks


Hero Expanded blocks are a great way to display a small body of text with a pleasing background. If you wish to feature an image with minimal text, consider using a Hero block instead. 

In this tutorial, you will learn how to edit Hero Expanded blocks.

  4. Edit the field(s) you wish to change. You can edit the Label, Title, Image, Caption Content, Caption Color, and Caption Position. If you have questions about the Label or Title fields, please refer to our Content Cards guide. Similar to the Hero blocks, it is recommended that you use images with a width of at least 1500px. Hero Expanded blocks' images will be resized automatically to make sure there is room for your whole caption. If you need guidance on how to add an image, please refer to our Images and Photos page
