Overview of formatting buttons in OpenCms

Please note
Not all buttons are activated for structured content files. By default, structured content editors only display the most common buttons.

Format

Format drop down for heading styles

 

 

 

The Format drop down allows you to format your content with specific heading styles. The heading styles are pre-programmed based on your website design.

Heading 1 – Main Headings
Heading 2 – Sub Headings
Heading 3 – Sub-Sub Headings
… and so on.

Heading styles are important for search engine optimization. In order to apply heading styles, you need to apply clear paragraph breaks to the content – see our practical example.
