    Note: You need to edit the text in HTML tags. If you delete the tags, the styles of your block will be lost.

  6. In case you want to delete one of the blocks, go on your server using the hosting cpanel of the FTP and search for the tpl_customblock.php file located in the “includes\templates\themeXXX\common” folder.

    • Open the file with any code editor, you may use code editor directly on the cpanel:

    • Each custom block is represented by a separate “<li>”-item. You can delete or comment the code of the block you want to remove:

    • After removing the block you need to adjust the layout of the page by changing the bootstrap class of the block items. For example, to change the layout from 3-column to 2-column, you need to replace “col-sm-4” with “col-sm-6”:
