  • The In-skin Edit Screen

    The In-skin Edit Screen is the easiest way to edit content, but it may not be available in the Evo Skin you are currently using.

    Turning on In-skin Editing

    By default, the In-Skin Edit Screen is not turned on. You can turn this option on by navigating to Blogs > Settings > Advanced > In-skin Action Settings.

    Accessing In-skin Edit Screen

    There are two ways to access the In-skin Editor through the Back Office. If your dashboard screen is currently open, you can view your blog by clicking on ‘See’ located at the left of the top menu.

    The In-skin Edit Screen

    While viewing the blog, choose the post that you want to edit by clicking on the title. Once open, you will find the edit option at the bottom of the post; clicking ‘Edit’ will open the In-skin Edit Screen.

    Alternatively, you can also access the In-skin Editor by opening the post you want to edit in the Back Office and navigating to the ‘In Skin’ tab.

    Parts of the In-skin Edit Screen

    Similar to the edit screens available through the Back Office, the In-skin Edit Screen also allows you to assign tags, choose post visibility and add categories.

    The Text Box

    While some of the features the other two editing screens offer are not available, the In-Skin Editing Screen still provides basic editing capabilities. Using the toolbars, you can add hyperlinks, embed images and videos, format text and use tags for faster editing.

    Choosing a Category

    To publish your post, you must choose a main category; you can assign the post to multiple extra categories. Additionally, if you don’t see the correct category you can also add a new one, as well.
