Types of HTML editors

There are two types of HTML editors in the system.

  • TinyMCE: A What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) field that displays text as readers would see it on the screen. TinyMCE is the default editor.
  • htmlArea: The legacy editor, which offers a more basic WYSIWYG interface as well as a mode that shows only HTML markup.

The glide.ui.html.editor system property specifies which interface is used for all HTML fields.

Note: CSS declarations in the themes.css file that styles the entire instance may override styles declared by HTML fields. To determine what attributes are overriding a style, use a web development tool (for example, Firebug for Firefox).
