Using the Editor

Basic options of Editor

When editing the content in your site, you may see fields that have a rich text editor like the one you see below. This editor, called TineMCE, offers many of the features seen in programs like Microsoft Word, giving you many featuers such as the ability to style your text, create tables and lists, and insert images. This tutorial will explain how to use the editor and what all the buttons on the editor's toolbar do.

The default editor will look like this:

body text

On top you can see the toolbar, below the text area and at the bottom a resize bar. If you drag the lower right corner you can make the editor window bigger or smaller.


The following table describes the function and output of each button.
