If all you need to do is edit text on Web pages, learning how to use LiveWhale takes only a few minutes.
The First Step
Once you’re logged in, just click the “Edit Page” link in the top left corner of the page. (You’ll only see the link if you’re authorized to edit the page— which of course you are in this demo— and if the page contains editable regions.)
When you click the link, all the regions of the page marked editable will become, well, editable. A toolbar appears at the top of the screen with the following icons:
|Basic text formatting
|Styles (selection defined by CMS admin)
|Block elements (paragraph, headers, etc.)
|Remove formatting; basic list types
|Add image(s), media, or widgets
If you’re familiar with the WYSIWYG editor TinyMCE (which is used by WordPress as well as many other popular CMS products) then you’ll recognize most of these buttons. But a few of them (in particular the buttons for adding images, media and widgets) are LiveWhale custom functions.
