Users working in the admin side of Omeka sites can use a HTML editor, powered by TinyMCE, to style and format text, to add links, and to embed multimedia.
Use the Editor
To add text, write or paste text into the box available when adding or editing items, writing exhibit text, or captioning images in exhibits.
If you want to format the text, use the buttons in the tool bar that appear at the top of the box to bold, italicize, underline, justify, and link words, or add bullet points. Please be aware that CSS formatting in specific exhibit theme may control the appearance of this text, so the editor may not always reflect how the final page looks.
To embed web objects, such as videos from YouTube or ArtBabble, or add other HTML tags not available in the tool bar above the text box, click on the HTML button and an HTML Source Editor window will appear to you.
In this window, you may paste text that will embed videos or other web-generated elements. If you try to paste in a string of code into the text window (first image above), the text will not be saved and the object you are trying to embed will not appear on your page. You may add other HTML tags (see below for more on what is allowed) through this interface.
Once you have finished coding the page, click Update.
Omeka uses the default rule set from TinyMCE. For a complete list see default rule set from TinyMCE. Note, one tag that is not allowed is <iframe>.
