Working with Paragraphs

Paragraphs are pre-themed, pre formatted  methods of presenting information in a consistent manner. Paragraphs allow users to style their content in specific ways by simply selecting the desired paragraph; entering the information; and selecting preferences for how that information should be displayed.

Each content type will provide a list of available paragraphs for use. All paragraph types are not available on all content types.
