Using the Article Editor with News Articles

The Article Editor is accessible under the News admin page. Just click on any Article to edit it, or click "+ New Article" to create a new one. The simplified editor has the Title and Date options at the top, then a large WYSIWYG editor below. Options for where to display your article are at the bottom of the page.

To add an Image or Photo, click the "Insert/Edit Image" button (upper toolbar, looks like a green tree). A small dialog box will pop up. Click the selection icon next to the "Image URL" Field to bring up the standard LL Select/Upload page. This is simplified version of the File Manager, complete with tabs, that allows you to select any valid file.

Using the "Insert/Edit Image" button, you can select any image file you've uploaded, as well as any Charts you've created or the standard LL Animated Graphics.

To create a link to a file, select some text or an image in your editor window (or type some if it is blank). Then click the "Insert/Edit Link" button (upper toolbar, looks like chain links). Again, a small dialog box will pop up. Click the selection icon next to the "Link URL" Field to bring up the standard LL Select/Upload page. You can now select any file that you've uploaded.

To add a video (for Pro and Elite site), click the "Insert/Edit Video" button (upper toolbar, looks like a circle with a triangle inside). As before, a small dialog box will pop up. Click the selection icon next to the "Name" Field to bring up the standard LL Select/Upload page. You can select or uplaod any of your videos from there.
