How to format your text

Using the rich-text editor you're able to insert:

  • Bold and italic text

  • Lists

  • Headings

  • Quotes

  • Links

  • Files and images

  • Embedded content (i.e. YouTube, Soundcloud, etc) *not supported in emails*

Text formatting (bold, italics, lists, headings, and quotes) can be done with the buttons in the editor toolbar. Inserting links, files, and embedded content is described in more detail below.


Adding a new link

  1. Select the text you want to link

  2. Click the link icon in the editor toolbar (or press cmd + k )

  3. Enter the full URL (including the http:// prefix)

  4. Click the "Link" button

Removing a link

  1. Select the link text within the editor

  2. Click the link icon in the editor toolbar

  3. Press the "Unlink" button


How to insert images and files

Images and files can be inserted simply by dragging them into the editor directly from your computer.

Images will be displayed inline with the text, and other files will display a link to download them. To remove the file, select it and click the X button.


How to embed content

Podia allows you to embed content from many other services directly into the editor. Some examples of things you can embed:

  • Videos from YouTube, Vimeo, and others

  • Tweets

  • Audio from Soundcloud

  • Presentations from Slideshare and Speakerdeck

  • Images from Instagram, Flickr, Imgur, etc.

To embed content, simply paste the URL of the item you want to embed into the editor (do not "link" the URL; you may need to double check that it isn't automatically hyperlinked when adding the link into the Editor):

Note that the video (or whatever you're embedding) does not appear in the editor itself. On your Storefront, the URL will be replaced with the embedded content:

Note: embedded content, such as a YouTube videos, will not display within an email broadcast or email campaign.
