This is a demonstration of the rich text formatting options.
Using the style select box in the toolbar you can select different block styles for your paragraphs.
The headers above were set using the Heading 3 and Heading 4 formats respectively. As regular HTML, these would appear respectively as:
*Please note: h1 tags are reserved for the site title. h2 tags are reserved for page title (see "How to Use the Rich Text Editor" above). Both are applied automatically to these elements by the content management system.
Additional options include addresses:1234 Main St. Pawtucket, RI 02861
If you're presenting programming code or a formula you may prefer to use the code sample format:
a + b = c
Remember that you have access to the run of the mill formatting options also. These include:
You may also modify paragraph alignments.
This is a left aligned paragraph.
This is a center aligned paragraph.
This is a right aligned paragraph.
And this is a justified spacing paragraph (spaced to fill line as best as possible - think newspaper columns of uniform width).
Here's a quote for good measure.
Use the omega button (Ω) to insert special characters. See some examples below:
You may manually create links to a fixed address within or outside of the current site. Highlight the text you wish to link and click the button with the chain links (in tact):
Note: the anchor button will insert a named anchor as opposed to a link. Named anchors allow you to create "jump to" points within a page that you may link to with the hash mark notation (e.g. #jump_to_point).
An easier way to link to content that already exists on your site would be to use the Link to Internal Content button (icon of chain links superimposed over page. Bottom row of editor toolbar). Clicking this will display a dialog window allowing you to chose from existing content in the site. Click the "insert link" text next to the title of the content you wish to link and the link will be inserted for you automatically.
If you highlight existing text, the highlighted text will be turned into a link to your selected target. Otherwise, title of the target content will be inserted as the link text.
For convenience, the content list in the dialog can be filtered by content type and/or keywords in the content's title. You may or may not need to resize the selection window slightly to see the pager controls at the bottom of the screen.
Here's a sample link created using the Internal Content button. If you view the HTML for this link you'll notice no difference with the link created using the regular link button. It uses the standard anchor (a) tag with href (and optional title) attribute. The difference is the convenience of selecting from a list of existing content. Notice that the link doesn't have to be to a page or other text-based content. It can also link to an existing image node. (Note: "content" and "node" are sometimes used interchangably to refer to individual content items created on a Drupal site).
