Editing content on your site is very simple. You do need to be logged in to edit content but you can log in on any supported web browser on any computer anywhere. The fastest way to edit any content in your site is to go to the content in question, click the grey gear, and click edit.
Rich Text Editor
Your site comes with a rich-text editor which functions as any standard word processor might. There are options for bold, italic, lists and more. Most of these you'll recognize from word processors. These are used in the same way you'd expect. Select the text you want to change, click the button and it will be bold, underlined,or colored for you. You'll also find a couple of website-specific options. *To expand the options, click the last button in that first row.

Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
Lines and paragraphs are automatically recognized. The <br/> line break, <p> paragraph and </p> close paragraph tags are inserted automatically. If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines by clicking the Return key on your keyboard.
Controlling the "Teaser" Break
Many pages of content will initially show short "teasers" of each post along with a link to the full page. By default the system will try to show the first paragraph of your post as the "teaser" but you can adjust where that teaser break should go. To adjust the teaser break, move your cursor to the desired location and click the teaser break button,
Copying and Pasting from Other Sources
Many site owners will want to copy and paste material from other sources such as a word processor document, a PDF file, or an email. Unfortunately applications like word processors and email clients often include a lot of unwanted formatting code with each copy/paste. OpenScholar will ultimately strip away unwanted code from public view but it may appear to you in the rich text editor and may be distracting. To avoid this you can click the Paste from Word () which will open a new popup window. By pasting and inserting into this window, all unwanted formatting code is stripped away entirely. You can then continue to format the text as you like.
Other Kinds of Content
These are images, media, and files. The control allows you to place non-text content directly in the body of your post. Clicking on this control will bring up a dialog box on the screen to guide you further.
