Post Contents Panel
The headline of your post.
This lets you select the Locale of your post from all of the locales that have been enabled in the Regional Settings Screen; it was previously located under the Simple Edit Screen. For this drop down box to appear, you must have more than one locale selected. To select additional locales, navigate to System > Regional > Locales; this is the first tab under the new screen. Check the box next to each locale that you want to appear.
Markup vs. WYSIWYG
On some Post Types you can switch between Markup and WYSIWYG modes. On some others, HTML is not allowed and you will have only access to markup mode. This can be configured in Post type Features. For example, by default, forum posts do not allow HTML and the edit screen will look like this:
These toolbars will help you in editing your post in the main text area below. They will automatically add code/tags to the main text area below.
The included toolbars are plugins.
Main text area
This is where you enter the text for your post.
- If the Post Type allows it, you can enter XHTML tags here, however, some tags might get rejected later depending on your SafeXhtmlChecker and other security settings.
- You can also use alternative markup based on what renderer plugins you have enabled.
- Finally, there are a few special markers you can use. These will be interpreted by b2evolution when displaying the post:
[teaserbreak]will split the post into a teaser (before the more tag) and an extended section (after the mode tag). At display time, only the teaser will be displayed with a link to read more. The whole post will be displayed once the site visitor clicks the more link.
[pagebreak]will split the post in as many pages as you want. Only the first page will be displayed by default, with links to the others pages.
- There are additional Useful Short Tags you can type in here.
- Many additional short tags are provided by Renderer Plugins.
This will save the post and make it public (Public status).
This will Save the post without changing its status. You can manually change the visibility status with the Visibility selector.
Save & edit
This will save the post and stay on the same edit screen. You can manually change the visibility status with the Visibility selector.
This will open a new window (or tab) and show you a preview of your post in your collection’s skin.
If the "Preview" button opens your blog in a new window but you don’t actually see a preview of your post in there, carefully check the URL. You have probably incorrectly set the URL of your blog and a redirect is taking place, preventing the preview. Especially check ending slashes on the URL.
