Episerver CMS iconEditing content using the TinyMCE rich-text editor

The TinyMCE rich-text editor is a property where you can enter information such as text with formatting, images, tables and links to other content. The rich-text editor is used for both pages and blocks in Episerver CMS, and for catalog content if you have Episerver Commerce installed.

The TinyMCE editor is highly configurable, and a developer may have configured it so that it looks different on different page types on your website. There are also a number of plug-ins that may have been added to your editor, but these are not described in this user guide. The Episerver sample templates come with a standard selection of activated editor functions (buttons) as shown in the image above. For more information on the specific TinyMCE implementation on your website, contact your administrator.

You can drag and drop blocks into the editor area, and pages from the page tree to create links. Spell checking is available from the browser you are using, or through the Spell checker add-on from Episerver.


The Paragraph option displays a drop-down list with predefined style formats retrieved from the CSS style sheets on the website, to be used when formatting text.

You can extend the styles list to include specific formatting for an introduction text, a predefined table layout, or to position images with floating text in the editor area.

Keyboard shortcuts

You can use many of the standard keyboard shortcuts in the rich-text editor.
