The settings in the "Settings" editing screen determine how your block will function, "List" allows you maintain the content of the block, and the settings in the "Designer" screen determine its aesthetics.

Settings

There are several aspects of your "URL" block that can be changed in this screen; the name of the block, the icon (or image) that will be used in the app menu, and the top image for the "URL" screen. You can also choose whether you'd like the users to be able to share the events via twitter, Facebook, or email.

Should the need arise to keep the users of your published app from using this portion of the app, then you can always make use of the "Activated" sliding selector.

Slide the selector to "OFF" to keep users from seeing the "FAQ" block. Now you can continue developing your app without worrying about users coming upon areas that you haven't finished developing as of yet. Once you are satisfied with your progress, slide the selector back to "ON" to publish this portion of your app.

List

This is where you add the the URLs and their titles to the building block. Click here to read more about working with "List" settings.

Design

The "Designer" screen allows your to make highly detailed changes to your building block. "Designer" gives the developer a remarkable amount of freedom to adjust everything exactly as he or she would like it. "Designer" is not available to all users.
