WYSIWYG Element Dialog

The WYSIWYG element becomes a field in Contributor where users (contributors) add, edit, and delete text, graphics, and more. You can control the contributor's experience using this dialog. This particular element is used in legacy sites.

Element Description
ID The identification that Site Studio assigns to the element.
Name The name you assign to the element. It should not contain spaces, or non-ASCII or special characters.

If you reuse the same data file in multiple places, then the name of the region and its elements on each page must be the same.

Label Briefly describes the element. The label displays beside the field in Contributor to let individual contributors know what content should go there.
Info Provides a more detailed description of the element. This description appears as a tooltip when contributors hover their mouse over the Info icon in Contributor.
Type Indicates the type of element you are adding.
