Editing text in the text editor

When adding content, it is good practice to structure your page correctly in a way that the user will find easy to understand. Make use of headings to break up your text and structure the headings correctly. The highest level of heading you will use will be Heading 2 as Heading 1 is the page title. These are selected from the dropdown menu at the top which defaults to paragraph.

Adding headings

Please note that before you format a heading as a 'Heading 2' etc you will need to ensure that there is break in the paragraph. It avoids issues if rather than pressing return at the end of the previous paragraph, instead add the return immediately before the first word of the proposed heading.

A subheading under that section (h2) would use heading h3 for example. Bold should not be used for a heading, only to emphasise something. It is important to use this hierarchy for headings.

If pasting in text from a Word document, highlight the text and use the remove formatting tool (see icon below). This will ensure there are no formatting errors (especially important in documents).


Adding links

Links are added using the link tool highlight the word or phrase and click on the link tool. Highlight the link text and select the link icon 

If you wish to link to a page within our website, click on the find icon  and search for the page you wish to link to, or if it is a pdf, word or excel document then click on the ‘Switch to asset tree’ icon and navigate to the document.

Documents or external links: If you wish to link to an HTML document on our website, you will need to publish the document, find it from the document library, and click on it to get the url. Copy this from your browser window and paste it into the url field within the link tool.

By selecting the asset links are produced in the system that will not be broken if the asset gets moved (only use the url address copied from the browser bar if you want to connect to a post page as it cannot be done any other way). If it is another page on the NIHR site choose a target of ‘None’ or if it is a document choose a target of ‘New window’.  Do not just paste the url into the main text body. Link text should describe the link properly i.e. find out more about recently published research rather than ‘click here for more information’.

Adding Anchors

If you need to add a link to a section to further down the page for example, place your cursor in the space at the end of the sentence above the destination heading. (For documents this is especially important to do this, as it can add code to the heading that prevents the title from appearing the contents list) then click on Anchor icon. Type in a name i.e. 'Reviewing section' in the name box and click ok.

Now select the text that you want to link from and click on the link box. Select your anchor name from the anchors drop down list and click ok. If you have created an anchor in a different text body block, the anchor name will not appear in this list. In this case, type the name of your anchor preceded by a # in the url box (e.g. #policy).


Adding images

If you are uploading a new image ensure you have read the information on the image checklist page. If you are adding an image into your content page see Adding an image to a page.


Adding Tables

Click on table drop-down arrow,  select insert table and drag your mouse over desired number of rows and columns and a table will be created on your page.


Change the title row of the table to blue header cells (see below).

ColoursHeight  WidthNumber
 Blue  34  25  537
 Green  56  20  467

To do this highlight the row, right-click and select Cell properties. Change Cell type from Cell to Header Cell and click OK.

Please note: Other table actions can also be performed by right-clicking on the table such as cutting, pasting, deleting, splitting and merging rows and columns.

When you have finished editing your page click ‘Save’.
