Content Editor

The content editor provides similiar functionality to that found in Microsoft Word or any other word processing package, what makes it different is that it automatically adds the formatted document to the website. From there others can see it and the website can use the data to create automatic newsletters and tables of information on related topics.

Input Formats

The editor is a powerful tool and if you have the correct permissions you may be able to access different input formats, these offer less help however are un-guided and are to be used by those who only know about HTML and web-design. Please contact the Web Team if you have any queries about these modes.
