At Admin Panel -> Settings -> Switches you can enable a WYSIWYG editor (WYSIWYG stands for what you see is what you get). The WYSIWYG editor allows a more intuitive visual way for your visitors to format their text. It's like a word processor program. If you don't use WYSIWYG, you can of course still use BB Codes by hand.

The main "WYSIWYG" switch enables the editor for posts and private messages, and for article text in WSN KB, and for article editing in WSN KB. The "WYSIWYG in descriptions" switch enables the editor for article descriptions and category descriptions.

A selector to the left of it allows the submitter to switch WYSIWYG on and off as per their preference. To set the guest default, go to Admin Panel -> Settings -> General -> "Guest Default Editor"... to set the member default (if different), use Admin Panel -> Members -> Registration Defaults.

If you wish to change which buttons appear in the WYSIWYG toolbar, go to Admin Panel -> Settings -> General -> Standard WYSIWYG Toolbar Buttons / Basic WYSIWYG Toolbar Buttons.

If you'd like to enable the WYSIWYG editor on a custom field, add the field name to the extrawysifields tweak at Admin -> Settings -> Tweaks Editor. Then copy the template code from the description field at Admin -> Themes -> Manage Templates -> Submit Article, changing all instances of description/DESCRIPTION to your field name.

Technical Note

The WYSIWYG editor is CKEditor. If you have feature requests for the editor or want to learn more, see their website.
