Edit a right-side block on a content page

Applicable to: content pages | Skill level: intermediate

Goal: Edit an existing block displayed in the right-side column of a content page.

The right-side column of a content page can be a little confusing. While the main content area (the left-side column) is managed through the content page itself, the right-side blocks live in another location (usually the _blocks folder) and are added to the content page.

To change the content of a right-side block, you first have to figure out which one it is.


  1. Navigate to your content page and click Edit.

  2. Scroll down below the WYSIWYG box and look for the Right column block chooser. This section will tell you the names and locations of the blocks displaying in the right-side column of your content page, in the order they appear on the page.

  3. Make a note of the name and location of the block(s) you need to edit (e.g., _blocks/need-help).

  4. Cancel out of the content page (or Submit if you changed anything while you were in there).

  5. Navigate to the block(s) in Cascade and make your needed edits. 

  6. Navigate back to your content page in Cascade. Your edited block(s) should now appear in the View.
