Edit your site

Editing your site

To edit your Google site, click the Edit Page button in the upper right hand corner of the screen. The edit toolbar will provide you with the tools necessary to edit your Google site.

Here's what each option does:

Undo and redo changes

You can undo and redo changes by clicking the arrow buttons in the toolbar. You can also use these keyboard shortcuts:

  • Undo (Ctrl-z)
  • Redo (Ctrl-y or Shift-Ctrl-z)

Change the font type and size

You can select the font type and size using the two drop-down menus.

Edit text

Add boldface type and italics, underline text, and change the color of your text or text background:

  • B adds boldface type
  • I allows you to italicize
  • U underlines text
  • The A on the left changes text color
  • The A on the right changes the text background color

Create a link

Highlight the text that you want to turn into a link, and click the Link button. A window appears with these options for creating your link:

  • Existing page (with an option to choose Create new page and link to it)
  • Web address
  • Apps Script

Create a list

Click the Numbered list button or the Bulleted list button, depending on the type of list you need to add to the site. Then type the first item, and press Enter. The next number or bullet point appears.

The Tab key can help you indent your bullet points, while the Enter key will move back your indentation.

Indent or move your list

Click the two buttons next to the bulleted list to indent or move back the starting point when adding a bulleted or numbered list. Click twice to move each item two spaces, and so forth.

Align your text

Use these buttons for your page alignment. You have the option to align the text on your page to the left, center, or right side of the page.

Remove formatting and edit HTML

You can remove the formatting from any part of your page by highlighting the relevant text and clicking this icon.

Click the HTML button to edit the HTML on your site. Please keep in mind that we do limit the amount of editing that can be done. Some advanced coding won't work.
