ExpressionEngine 7.4.0 brings a new WYSIWYG editor to the native RTE. Redactor X is a modern, feature-rich editor, with a highly customizable interface. And if you want to extend the native features? That’s easy to do as well.
The native RTE field’s editor options expand in the 7.4.0 release to include the super smooth, feature-rich Redactor X text editor. The full editor toolset comes with all of the features you’d expect, including source code editing, ID and class selectors, image resizing and placement, and ‘undo/redo’ buttons. Undo is my personal go to.
There are multiple context sensitive menus that stay out of your way until you need them. Show the menus you want, where you want. If your dad wants a single static row with a bold button, an image button and nothing else? Let the man upload the pics of his new golf club driver in peace. Your boss can’t remember how to slap a © on the page? Put it in a context bar and look like a genius.
Fully integrated with with Pages, Structure, and Files, this WYSIWYG editor makes what should be simple tasks actually simple.
Did I mention there are a lot of options with this editor? It’s kind of ridiculous how many choices you have with the default buttons/menus. Find the combination that works best for you and your team; or your dad, as the case may be. Spellcheck options (including Grammarly!) and a Right-to-Left language option are there out-of-the box as well.
Even if you’re not one to use a WYSIWYG, we think it’s worth giving Redactor X a shot. The feedback from the developer previews has been phenomenal!
