Rich Text Editor Essentials


A Rich Text Editor (RTE) provides the ability to enter text with markup.

Communities components that allow user generated content (UGC) can be enabled to allow RTE. Depending on whether the component was added to a page or included within a function , RTE may or may not be enabled by default.
If not enabled, simply enter author edit mode , select the component for edit, and select the Rich Text Editor checkbox.
RTE is available for the following Communities components:


Customization of the rich text editor is possible as the implementation is based on CKEditor .
The current configuration for Communities components is in the scf clientlib , located in the repository at
Modifying the clientlib is not recommended as future upgrades may override any edits.
