Using the CK Editor for Announcements, Emails, Banners

You can use the CK Editor to add tables, images, flash, hyperlinks and to format your Announcements, Emails, and Page Banners.

What is the CK Editor?

CK Editor is an enterprise-grade WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) HTML editor with wide browser compatibility. Simply copy/paste from Word and Excel, spell check, accessibility checker, tables.

The “WYSIWYG” part means that when you use CKEditor, you can style the text and add rich media contents to your document in real-time by using the editor interface (toolbar buttons, dialog windows), and the result will be seen immediately. If you click the Bold button, the text will become bold; when you add an image, it will appear straight away.
