Learn about the editing toolbar in Drupal.
This guide is aimed at
- PG Students
Before you start
You need to be a Senior Editor, Editor or Author
When editing use Chrome, Firefox or Safari but NOT Internet Explorer
On the editing toolbar, you find the icons to manipulate text:
It allows you to add heading styles as well:
Heading styles should always be used starting with the largest i.e. the Title (H1), to the smallest i.e. h6.
On the styles menu you can choose from h2, h3, h4, h5 and h6.
People who listen to a web page rather than read need headings which is why they should always be used in the correct order, from larger to smaller.
People who read a web page tend to scan the page before they decide to read everything so they, too, need headings to help them scan faster!
You also use this toolbar to add a number of widgets, such as galleries, maps, videos, call-to-action boxes, columns, accordions etc.:
Please consult the list below for all the different types of edits you can perform and use their links for descriptions on how to use these.
