TinyMCE is the default editor for both Frontend and Backend users. TinyMCE is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor that allows users a familiar word-processing interface to use when editing Articles and other content.

TinyMCE can be configured with 3 different sets of toolbar buttons

  • Set 2 is assigned to 'Public'.
  • Set 1 is assigned to the 'Manager' and 'Registered'.
  • Set 0 is the most extended toolbar and is by default assigned to the 'Administrator', 'Editor' and 'Super Users'.

The functions are:

  • Save. Saves the user note and stays in the current screen.
  • Save & Close. Saves the user note and closes the current screen.
  • Save & New. Saves the user note and keeps the editing screen open and ready to create another user note.
  • Save as Copy. Saves your changes to a copy of the current user note. Does not affect the current user note.
    Note: This toolbar icon is only shown if you edit an existing user note.
  • Versions. Opens the User Note Version History window to show any prior versions of this user note. This allows you to view older versions of this user note and, if desired, restore from an older version. Learn more about Version History.
