Text Editor CKEditor 5

The Text Editor functions much like Microsoft Word and other word-processing programs. You can enter content in a form that resembles what it will look like when published on the website.

How To

Understand the buttons and options on the Text Editor toolbar 

  1. The Paragraph Format dropdown allows you to select your text formatting, including headings and subheadings.
    1. Note: Headings need to be in outline order, beginning with Heading 2. Heading 3 items need to be nested under Heading 2 and so on. Do not skip heading numbers or use simple bold for heading text. This is for both consistency and accessibility. 
  2. Insert Code Block - Do not do this unless you are used to/planning to write code
  3. Make the font bold.
  4. Make the font italic.
