Add a Text Box

A Text Box, added to your Side Bar, is a handy tool that will enable you to add text, images, and more, that will remain in view where ever your viewers go on your website.

Let's review the process...

Adding a "Text Box" element to your Google Site.

Click on the More button in the top right of your site.

Note - If you do not see the More button, that means you are not logged into your Google account.  Scroll to the bottom of the site and click on sign in.

Select Edit Site Layout

You will now see editing options at the top of your screen:

Your navigation bar on your site will now appear as below.  Click on the "+" to add additional elements to your Sidebar. 

You will now be able to select from a variety of elements to add to your Sidebar.

Scroll until you find the Text Box  element > then click on Add.

Your new Text Box will appear (by default) at the bottom of your Side Bar items.  Click on this new Text Box to edit and add content.

Once done, Click on the Close button (top right) to exit the Edit Site Layout mode.
