A Content Box provides a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor mainly used for adding body text and media/tables.

Content Box - WYSIWYG

WYSIWYG (which stands for "What you see is what you get") is the editing interface that you will use for a Content Box.

  1. Styles [1] dropdown: This allows you to add headings: H2, H3, H4, H5, and H6.
    • H1 is reserved for page titles.
    • Headings represent hierarchy and should be used in order to demonstrate content priorities for accessibility.
  2. Remove Formatting [2]: Highlight text and select this button to remove formatting. This is helpful when copying/pasting text from other sources that might bring in text formatting that is not needed.
  3. Link [3]: Link to existing content (internal links) within the site, or add an external link.
    • Internal links: Start to type the name of the page or piece of content that you wish to link to; select it from the auto-suggest dropdown. Important for helping with broken links.
    • External links: Insert the entire URL in this link field.
    • Email addresses: You can simply add an email address along with other text and Drupal will automatically link the email address so that it opens in a user's mail client. Alternately, you can add an email address in this link field which will recognize that it is an email address; select it from the auto-suggest dropdown.
  4. Remove link [4]: If you need to remove a link, highlight the text and select this button. Simply deleting the link and words doesn't guarantee all of the code is removed.
  5. Anchor link [5]: Use this to link to a specific location on a page.
  6. Bullets [6]: Unnumbered and numbered bullets. Use frequently.
  7. Block quote [7]: Use to add a block quote style to text
  8. Add media [8]: Upload new media or find existing media in the pop up Media browser.
  9. Horizontal rule [9]: Add a horizontal rule between text or other elements.
  10. Source [10]: Shows source code. Good way to check your work if something looks off.
  11. Alignment [11]: Left, center, and right alignment options.
  12. Add a table [12]: Use sparingly. Large tables are more challenging to navigate on mobile devices.
