Why use formatting to create headers on your Placester site?

When adding any content to your site, it is important that is looks polished and professional. A good way to accomplish this is through adding formatting to titles and quotes included in your content. Formatting adds clarity and structure to any text you might add to the site.

How to format headers and quotes on your Placester site

Before starting to format your pages and posts, we recommend entering all of the content on a given page in the Page Content section. As you enter the text, keep in mind how you would like to organize your content and title appropriately. This way, you can go back through the text in it's entirety and format just the sections you want to highlight.
