In version 1.7.6 and later the rich text editor, also known as the WYSIWYG editor, includes additional features.

Rich Text on CollectiveAccess catalog records


The chain icon (RichText chain.png) can be used to link to any CollectiveAccess record within the text of the bundle. Simply click the icon, chose the table you wish to target with your search, and begin to type the name of the record you'd like to link to. Results will appear in a drop down below the Find entry. Use the Link Text entry to control how the reference appears in your text.


Using Rich Text for Pawtucket Content Management

One additional feature is offered for rich text bundles used on Pawtucket "Site content" editors, accessed in Providence via Manage > Pawtucket.

The image icon (PageContent Image.png) in these RTE can be used to include images inline with site page text.


First, upload an image using the special "Page Media" bundle:


Here you can also add a title and caption, which can be easily pulled into the site text with the image if desired. Once the image has been uploaded, you can then select it for placement within the rich text.


This dialog includes several options for image size, and if "Include text" is checked, options for also displaying the image's title and caption.
