What does WYSIWYG stand for?

"What you see is what you get." 

What is WYSIWYG? 

WYSIWYG acts as a textbox. You can place text, images, tables, links, or macros within a WYSIWYG. You may also format the content within the widget properties. 

How Do You Use WYSIWYG?

Once you have a Foundations (like in a Grid Layout) Widget, you can place a WYSIWYG inside. Use WYSIWYG to make titles for your site, write content, add images, or add tables.

How Do You Configure RP WYSIWYG?

Entering And Formatting Text
Entering text into the "text" box within widgetproperties automatically displays text on the page within the widget. To format text, select the desired formatting in the tool bar or the appropriate text style in the drop-down "style menu." When you click on a word within the box, the applied style(s) appear in the bottom bar of the text box. If you want text to hyperlink to another page or document, highlight the desired text and use the insert link tool.

Adding an Image or Table

You can add a widget or table using the corresponding buttons in the tool bar. Adding a table creates a table within the text box that you can edit directly in the widget properties for the WYSIWYG.


To link to something like a File, Page on Your Site, or Outside Website URL, type the text within the WYSIWYG that you would like to link to the document. Highlight the text, Press the "Insert Link" button that looks like a chain. Use the Media Library to link to Open a File, Use “Content” to link to a page within your Content Tree, Use “URLs” to link to a Web Page, and “Email” to start an Email. Save and Close the Widget.
