Using the rich text editor
The Rich Text Editor is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor that works much like a word processor. When editing a Rich Text/HTML content item, it will allow you to easily add and format text, images, and tables.
Rich Text Editor features include:
- Bold, italic, and strikethrough formatting
- Paragraph alignment
- Numbered and bulleted lists
- Links and anchors
Guides statistics report
The Guides statistics report allows you to see a breakdown of views for your guides over time. You can limit your report to specific guides or all guides. There is also an option to filter your guides by status.
