    WYSIWYG form element

    Use the WYSIWYG form element to add WYSIWYG editor (CKEditor) field to your Component form. For more information, see Create an editable component.

    Locating the WYSIWYG form element

    To find the WYSIWYG form element:

    1. Navigate to a component
    2. Click the + button on the Component form builder
    3. Within the Fields tab, look for the WYSIWYG form element.


    The WYSIWYG element includes the following fields:

    Field name

    • Field label - Provide a name for the form element. The field label will be displayed above the field in your component form. Important: It will also be used to auto-generate the field machine name. Auto generation only occurs until you have clicked Apply.
    • Machine name - Set the machine name of the field. Used as a token when linking an element to the field. Must be unique within the component. Important: If you need to change the machine name later, click the Edit icon on the field's right.


    • Default value - Set default content for this field
    • Allow text format - Sets which text format to use for the editor. Text formats are managed within Configuration > Content authoring > Text formats and editors. Site Studio provides an enhanced Text format called 'Site Studio'. For more information, see Editing content with CKEditor WYSIWYG.



    • Tooltip text - Enter tooltip text here.
    • Tooltip placement - Define the position of the tooltip on hover of the field.
