Editing text-Noob Question

#1

After deleting some old joomla files, I was able to login. I went to a page to edit but I quickly discovered that I don’t know how to edit existing text. If this has been covered previously forgive me. Dragging one of the menu items will create new text(which hopefully will be subject to the css), but if you wanted to add to existing text, I’m not sure how that can be done. Thanks in advance.

I just tried to drop something, anything into an existing page- NOTHING. Is there still not enough space to work?

#2

Just wrap existing text with <div class="sc-content"></div>

You need to have sc-content classes set for editable zones. Please go through the integration docs:

Yes, I have done so, but I still cannot edit that text, the box turns red.

  1. put content in <p></p> tags
  2. add sc-content class on parent div, eg. <div class="sc-content"></div>
#7

So each block of text needs to be in paragraph AND content tags? or each individual line of text?

#8

Just as an experiment, I tried putting the title in its own content div and the dates in another. I was unable to make any textural changes. Do I need to delete more files from the server to free up space?

#9

Each block of text should be in h1, …h6, p, or some other tag. It’s how HTML works.

I used a css div called text which had the color, size, and font. Why do I not see a p option on the sitecake nav bar?

#11

p option is fifth from the left.
