CSS with PowerCMS2
I am a version 1.02 developer, and have always felt that the application of (class) styles (called out on the external style sheet controlling the site pages) by the client/user was straightforward enough, but it was the addition of the class styles by the developer to the drop down, so they were accessible to the client/user in the internal html editor, was tricky at best. Judging from the number of threads on CSS, others found this to be true too.
From the demo for PowerCMS2 I see that the client/user will still have the styles, format, etc., drop downs available to them, and referring to your latest FAQs, your Q regarding CSS "Can a user select various styles......." your answer was:
"Out of the box, PowerCMS only gives users the ability to define text as Heading 1, Heading 2, etc. However, PowerCMS does NOT currently allow users to select various CSS styles. Instead, when a user adds content within PowerCMS the content will automatically inherit any existing CSS styles of the page being edited."
Do you really mean "NOT". If users are NOT allowed to select various CSS styles, then isn't this a step backward in capability from version 1.02?
In your demo, if you look at the source view for the Del Mar page, you will find various classes (top, stat, label, bottom, etc.) used throughout the page source: For example:
How is this class being added if not from the drop down for "style" (which is not there, by the way, as a choice)? Granted it could have been originally introduced by the developer, and only the number edited by the client/user, but what if the client/user was creating new content that included this line, and wanted to use the class "stat" to complete the style? How does he implement it if he knows nothing about html and is intimidated by the source view?
Finally, and once and for all, if the style drop down IS available for classes, what is the most straight forward way to make the external style sheet classes accessible via the editor (style) drop down?
