Editor Tips & Tricks
- For every Drupal site we support, there is a staging where you can learn the editing tools and try things out without affecting the live, public-facing site.
To access your staging site, simply add -staging or -staging.trinity to your live web address, for example:
|Public Site||Staging site|
- Enter starts a new paragraph; Shift + Enter starts a new line (i.e. a line break)
- It is not necessary to highlight an entire line to change its format (e.g. Heading 2): simply place your cursor anywhere in the line and select a new format.
- Use the HTML explorer at the bottom of the editor window to select the text you want to target.
- Use the Maximize button to enlarge the editing window; click it a second time to return the window to its original size.
- Double-clicking certain elements will invoke the appropriate dialog (Link, Image Properties, etc.).
- It is generally best practice to size and crop images before adding them via the editor.
- If you are familiar with HTML, it can sometimes be quicker to make certain edits using the Source view.
- Each time you save your changes, a new version is created – use revisioning to restore a previous version.
