Editing unstructured page contents is easy with OpenCms: by using the built-in WYSIWYG(*) editor editing content is similar to popular office applications. No HTML knowledge is required for editing, yet an integrated source code editor allows experts to exert full control over the HTML source.

With the help of the WYSIWYG editor, pages with "unstructured content" and complex layouts can be easily created. Insert images or links to downloads from galleries, create complex tables with the table wizard and add links with the link dialog (see screenshot) or from the external link gallery. Add special characters not available on the default keyboard from an easy-to-use interface.

Select from different templates to give every page a uniform, pre-defined layout. The available editor buttons are customizable for different groups of content editors, depending on their tasks to perform while editing a page.

(*) WYSIWYG editor is currently available for Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft IE with no additional software required, source code editor available for all browsers.
