Change Redactor font color presets
Also, quick question - why can't I choose a font color for h1-h5 elements?
- download the attached zip file
- navigate to your application folder
- unzip the file into application
- open redactor.js
- you can add or remove colors in this array
It turns out you can add a font color for heading elements, but it requires careful text selection. See attached screenshot. Applying the color may affect a previous element's styling which may require reapplying the style.
Why developers decided to use Redactor in the first place? It's so glitchy. CKEditor is way better. I just done my first project on C5, maybe for next one I'll find a way to replace Redactor to CKEditor.
The upcoming version 8 of concrete5 will be using CKEditor.
When concrete5 5.7 was being developed, I believe there were a limited number of rich text editors that supported in-context editing. Of those, Redactor was likely the best choice. Two plus years later, there are now more options for editors with in-context editing support. The best option appears to be CKEditor now.
Not to mention the stupid spans it adds on anything else, instead of adding the style to the containing element (not great for SEO either).
Totally hate the editor, but get a Synchronous XMLHttpRequest error message in Firefox trying to use the community_ckeditor package with 184.108.40.206 (sigh).
Too bad v8 is too unstable for my clients...
This tutorial covers how to write styles that don't use spans:
Adding Redactor custom styles in a theme (content block/rich text editor)
What in particular about v8 did you find unstable?
The next version of concrete5 will include many fixes, updates, and improvements.
