Is there a way to add CSS styles to within the WYSIWYG box when editing a page? There's been some requests from cascade users that what they are editing isn't actually what they see so I'm curious if & how to add styles to a WYSIWYG textarea. I've seen it done with Heading tags and paragraph tags but I'm wondering how I could implement this across the managment system.

    Hi Matthew,

    If you are looking to customize the actual content styling within the WYSIWYG editor, you would do so by specifying a CSS File at the Site level by going to the Site Management area and editing the desired Site.

    If you are within the Global area still, you would want to do the same thing, but go to System Menu -> Preferences -> Content to choose a CSS File within the Global area.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Not a problem at all, Matthew, thank you for following up. I am glad to hear the CSS File preference did the trick.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this discussion, please feel free to comment or reply to re-open if you have any additional questions.

    Have a great day!
