Content Builder vs. Quick Editor
LearningCart is built to be fully customizable. We offer two editor types based on your preference for a drag-and-drop tool (Content Builder) or an HTML editor (Quick Editor).
The LearningCart Quick Editor is based on the open source CKEditor project. The editor is designed to work much like a standard word processing program offering a variety of formatting options and features. For a complete user guide, please see http://docs.cksource.com/CKEditor_3.x/Users_Guide. If you run into specific issues, or have questions regarding use of the editor area, please contact your LearningCart representative and we will be more than happy to assist you.
Sites built before 2022 have Quick Editor set as the default editor.
Pasting content from Microsoft Word
It is often convenient to write and review content in Microsoft Word and then copy/paste that content into the LearningCart editor. Unfortunately, when you copy content out of Microsoft Word it often includes additional formatting information that does not translate well to other programs. To automatically remove this formatting and ensure your content is formatted consistently with the rest of your LearningCart site, use the Paste from Word feature.
To utilize this feature simply select the content from Microsoft Word that you want to copy and hit ctrl+c or click the copy button in Word. Navigate to the LearningCart editor and click within the editor where you want to place your content. Click the Paste from Word button from the editor toolbar. This button appears in the toolbar as a clipboard with a capital W.
Your content will then automatically be imported into the editor screen.
Depending on your browser settings you may be prompted to allow the browser access to your clipboard. If this message appears click Allow Access to allow LearningCart to access the information you have copied and then follow the on-screen instructions.
Adding links from the editor to other areas within the LearningCart system can easily be done using the Link button. The Link button appears in the editor toolbar as two linking chains.
To add a link, simply highlight the text in the editor that you want to turn into a link then click the Link button. A dialog window will open up that allows you to specify the URL you want this link to point to.
To link to a resource on another site enter your URL and then click the OK button.
To link to a new file or a resource within LearningCart click the Browse Server button.
The Add Link window will then appear and you can select the type of content you want to add a link to. Using this tool makes it easy to add links to LearningCart content, blogs, uploaded files, or products. Once you have found the item you want to create a link to, simply click on it and you will automatically be returned to the Link dialog window with the URL field automatically populated based on your select. Click OK to then add your link to the page.
The LearningCart Content Builder is a WYSWYG editor built with countless templates and wireframes that will enable you to easily get your website site up with little to no HTML experience. We have created a video series that will walk you through the basics of the content builder as well as how the content builder can be used for specific areas of your website.

The Content Builder Template feature can be used for page sections, full page layouts, existing html or saving something you have built within content builder to reuse elsewhere on the site. You can access the content template builder through your configuration tab in your admin interface.
