How to Add Highlighted Text in Bricks?

Before we proceed, ensure you’ve installed and activated Bricks and Max Addons on your WordPress website.

Next, open the page using the Bricks editor, and search for the ‘multi heading” element.

Once the element appears, click on it to add the element to your page. Make sure to check the “Max” tag in the upper right corner of the page.

I’ve already added a background image on the page to make the heading more visually appealing.

As soon as you add the element to the page, its setting option appears on the left panel.

The Multi Heading element includes the Content and Style tab.

Let’s start with exploring and making changes to the Content tab options.

Content Tab of the Multi-Heading Element

In the Content tab of Multi Heading, you’ll find three sub-sections:


We’ll see options in each subsection one by one.


Open the Heading sub-section and change the default Heading Text #1 to your preferred custom text.

Apart from the heading options, you’ll get customization options such as:

  • Typography
  • Background
  • Gradient Background
  • Border
  • Box Shadow
  • Padding

As all the styling options are self-explanatory and worth exploring, I would like to focus your attention on the Gradient Background option.

You need to enable the Gradient Background option to highlight your heading text.

Toggle on the option, and you’ll see options such as:

  • Apply to

Choose where you need to apply the gradient effect, Background, Overlay, or Text.

  • CSS selector

You also get an option to add custom CSS for selecting further options.

  • Angle in °

To set the angle of the gradient effect.

  • Colors

To add the primary & secondary gradient colors.

  • Color stop in %

To stop the color gradient effect at the selected percentage value.

Having made all the changes, here’s how my highlighted text looks:


The following subsection is the BACKGROUND TEXT.

And as the name says, you can add a Text Background to your Heading from this subsection.

Moreover, you can also adjust the Horizontal Position and Vertical Position of the added custom text background.


In the Heading Style sub-section, you get options to adjust styling if you’ve added multiple headings to the page.

You can choose the Style and select your headings should be displayed Inline or Stacked positions.

Style Tab of Multi-Heading Element

After making changes in the Content tab, move to the Style tab.

In the Style tab, you’ll find 8 subsections:

  7. CSS

Using the layout subsection, you can modify the Spacing and Sizing of the overall layout of the Multi Heading element.

You can adjust the spacing by adding Margin and Padding. In addition, you can set the size by selecting Width, Min. Width, Max. Width and more.

Also, you can change the element’s Alignment per your preferences.

Furthermore, you get some advanced options for Positioning and MISC settings.

Last but not least, you can choose and add some interactive Animations to your highlighted text.

Within the styling tab of the subsection, you can control the styling properties of every single element of the Multi Heading element.

Make your headings stand out by playing around with the styling options. You can experiment with different fonts, colors, and styles to create unique headings.

After customizing the options in the Style tab, this is how my Multi Heading element looks on the live page.
