Using the Kupu Editor
Not all of the functionality works as
advertised. From the toolbar here are the icon options grouped by
|Bold, Italic, Underline, Subscript, Superscript
|Text color highlighting||Bacground color does not work|
|Left, center and right justification|
|Numbered and unordered lists
||Definition lists work very poorly|
|Indentation changes: out and in||
|Table insert||Image, internal links and external links do not work.|
|Undo and redo
|Direct source code editing toggle
Forms-based OptionsOn the right-hand side are the forms-based options that may be applied to selections in the editing window. They are a little cumbersome. Here are the most useful functions:
Inserting a hyperlink
- First select with the mouse the phrase in the text to which you wish to link.
- Then either cut and paste, or type in, the hypertext link into the Links text field form.
- Finally press the 'Make Link' button.
For internal links within the current web document, always try to make the hyperlinks relative to the current document. This can be a bit tricky until you are a bit more familiar with Lenya's generated static html.
Inserting an inline image
- The image you wish to insert must have been previously loaded via the Assets option of the Site tab. Suppose it is called tiger.png
- Now place the mouse cursor in the document where you want the image to appear.
- In the Images form enter in the relative path to the asset. Again, this is a bit tricky until you are more familiar with Lenya's generated static pages. In our current example when I am working on 'kupu.html' Lenya will drop the extension on the filename and will generate a subdirectory called 'kupu'. The named asset will be in this directory. Thus I would enter kupu/tiger.png into the form field
- Finally press the 'Insert Image' button. Optionally you may select an image-float style before pressing the Insert Image button.
