Text block won't let me type in it / Text block won't show text

Hi! I’m trying to figure out why my text block (under the class Text Block 8) won’t let me type in it. I’m new to this. Sorry for the rudimentary question. Thanks for your help! Here’s a screenshot of the issue:

Here is my Read-Only site: https://preview.webflow.com/preview/tanner-blank-site?utm_medium=preview_link&utm_source=dashboard&utm_content=tanner-blank-site&preview=149370aca68db099b283f5dcd4103be3&mode=preview

I think I resolved the issue. I had a set the size of a parent div too small, so it wasn’t displaying.

Well, first, welcome to Webflow. There are a number of reasons it’s not working, but I can tell you right now, it won’t matter because the entire way your site is built isn’t correct. Webflow really isn’t meant to be jumped in and thrown together like some other website builders. You need to understand the fundamentals of HTML and the box model as well as CSS parameters to really be able to build a successful site in Webflow.

I strongly suggest setting aside quite a few hours (took me 20-40) to learn the basics of Webflow and follow along some tutorials. Luckily, we now have the Webflow 101 crash course which should help. https://university.webflow.com/courses/webflow-101-crash-course
There are also tons of videos on different features on the homepage https://university.webflow.com

I wish you good luck on your Webflow journey!
