CommonSpot integrates the popular CKEditor for easy-to-use WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) editing.
CKEditor is a full-function open-source text editor that emulates popular word processors enabling non-technical team members to quickly create and format content for the Web, within the familiar context of the current page. For contributors this editor offers:
Contributors use familiar tools within an intuitive user interface to add formatting, apply styles, and insert links and images, no coding required. The editor also contains a powerful HTML clean-up tool for removing unnecessary markup pasted from sources like MS Word.
For administrators, the editor offers the benefit of easy toolbar configuration, and customizations that can be tailored to each site's unique needs through plugins.
Use the Rick Text Editor Settings dialog to control the type and level of functionality available to content contributors. For example, you can show/hide HTML and other editing options, configure style sheet handling, spellcheck, and HTML cleanup and conversion settings.
From the Site Administration left panel, click Authoring Tools - Rich Text Editor Settings to display Rich Text Editor Properties.
Rich text editor (RTE) functionality is a component of several CommonSpot elements, including the Formatted Text Block and Formatted Text Block (without header) elements and is available as a field type for Metadata Forms, Custom Elements, and Simple Forms.
This tab allows you to configure general properties for the Rich text Editor. It has the following sections, each of which are described below:
The default location for loading the CKEditor is configured at the server level in Server Administration - Rich Text Editor Settings - Rich Text Editor Location Settings. By default this location is set to use the CDN (content delivery network) version of the CKEditor, but you can change it to use a local version.
If you have not created a resource for the CKEditor you must first do so, then refresh this dialog to display it in the CKEditor dropdown list. See Site Admin - Resources and Libraries.
You can also configure the behavior of the CKEditor by specifying additional configuration options in the Custom Configuration Options text area. See the CKEditor documentation for more information on its options and how to specify them.
You can set the default configuration for which toolbar buttons display in what order for the Rich Text Editor within this site. Click the Configure button to invoke the Configure Toolbar Buttons dialog. See Configure to enable, order, and format the edit controls that display to authors and editors.
You can control the visibility of the Source icon in the Rich Text Editor toolbar for directly editing HTML. Specify which groups should see the Source icon. By default HTML source access is enabled for everyone. To limit access, clear any groups listed and add only thosewho should have access. Note that if no groups are specified, everyone will have access to editing HTML source.
These options determine which class names display in the Rich Text Editor. There are two options for the Style Options:
The HTML Clean-up tab presents options for invoking TIDY, the HTML clean-up utility. You do not need to have MS Office loaded on the server for this function to be available.
Choose from the following to set the conditions for running the cleanup utility.
Select one or more cleanup options.
Select one or more cleanup options. You can also configure the level of detail contained in the messages the utility displays. When unchecked, Allow submission with warning and/or errors suppresses display of the "Continue" option in the message box shown to users during paste, file upload, or form submission. With no option to continue, contributors must fix the code whenever a TIDY error or Warning is displayed.
Optionally edit or remove settings or reset to TIDY defaults. Click the URL for details on TIDY each setting.
Use the Disabled Tags field to prohibit use of specific HTML tags for security reasons. Any content entered in the HTML view or pasted into the RTE with these tags will be parsed and the specified tags will be removed. Defaults to frame, iframe, and script tags.
Note: If the options for the HTML TIDY utility and the Microsoft Office HTML Cleanup utility conflict, the MS Office version takes precedence.
