First line and source

First line and source

Is there any way to make the default view the source of the content instead of WYSIWYG ? even if it were plain text that would be perfect. I am working on a site but I only want the end-user to make txt changes not format changes. The code is place within the div tags on the page to format the content. Also I don't want it to inset the <p> in the first line of code either. This way I can use the CMS for meta tags like keywords and descriptions. It would give the end-user a little more control over SEO. Please let me know if either one of these can be done. Thanks

To get rid of the P tags, you can look in the "Custom" folder which you will find in the "HTMLEditor" folder and then look for files like content_insert_ContentValue1.js... you'll also see the one for update. You need to edit both of them around line 34... you will see:

FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'p';

Change this to:

FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'br';

This will insert break tags instead of the paragraph tag when enter is pressed.

However, if you want to completely remove the chance that your client can do any formatting, you could just get rid of the HTMLEditor instances and replace them with text areas which is your best bet.

that worked and I took out enough of the buttons so they can't do much to the format. Works great to let them change the meta tags for the SEO.
