WYSIWYG Editors

Overview

OU Campus utilizes two styles of editing interface, the Classic Editor and JustEdit. They contain more or less the same functionality, with the Classic Editor having some additional advanced configuration options, but the JustEdit interface providing a more streamlined, easy-to-navigate user experience. 

Your implementation will default to one or the other; however, both can be accessed in any implementation. By using Shift + Click to open an editable region, you can switch the editing interface used to the non-default option. 

When editing in the WYSIWYG, modifications should be saved by clicking the Save icon before navigating away from the page. If an attempt is made to navigate away from the page without first saving it, the user is shown a reminder to save the page.

Note: The WYSIWYG editor only accepts HTML tags and will strip out server-side or client-side code. If users need to add server-side or client-side code, they should do so by creating a source code asset or inserting it directly in the source code for a page.

Classic Editor

Classic WYSIWYG

The Classic interface provides a standard editing experience, based on the TinyMCE 3 toolbar. It contains much the same functionality that a standard word processor would, including text formatting, inserting links, images, media, and OU Campus reusable content, and creating rudimentary tables and forms. It also provides multiple advanced configuration parameters when inserting links, images, and media.

JustEdit

JustEdit Interface

The JustEdit interface contains most of the same functionality as the Classic one, but with a more modern interface based off of TinyMCE 4. Some of the more esoteric configuration options for links, images, and media have been removed, and creating tables is a much more intuitive process. The forms option is replaced by inserting LDP Form Assets. JustEdit also utilizes in-context editing, which means that you view the changes you're making in the page as it appears on the live website.

In addition to the default toolbar options, custom toolbars can be configured by Level 10 Administrators under Setup > Toolbars. For more information, visit the Toolbars Setup page.
